It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Annie Fisher of Coleman, AB. Annie was called to be with the Lord on December 22, 2019 at her home with her loving husband, Jerry by her side. She was 84 years of age.
Annie was born on March 11, 1935 in Blairmore, AB to John and Bernice Habdas. She attended the Blairmore Elementary and High School and upon completing grade twelve, she obtained employment with Royal Bank of Canada in Blairmore as “Current Accountant” for two years. She then decided on a teaching career by enrolling at the University of Calgary. After completing her studies, she accepted positions at Huntsville School in Iron Springs, AB, St. Basil’s School in Lethbridge, AB and at three Calgary Separate schools. Most of her teaching experience in Calgary was at St. Gerard’s School where she made many fond memories. Later, she returned to the Crowsnest Pass and married her sweetheart, Gerald “Jerry” Fisher of Coleman, AB in 1969, and they celebrated their fiftieth anniversary this year. Annie spent the remainder of her teaching career at M.D. McEachern School in Bellevue, AB until her retirement in 1988. She was a proud member of the Alberta Teachers’ Association in Edmonton, AB.
Beside her love for teaching school, Annie was a good homemaker, spotless housekeeper and a loving, caring person. She enjoyed keeping in close contact with family, camping at Woodbury Resort, BC each summer, travelling and making yearly snowbird visits to Arizona. For another pastime, she found pleasure in watching “Wheel of Fortune” on TV and cheering on the Calgary Flames.
Annie was a special person in our lives and although she has moved from this life to her final resting place, memories of her will dwell in our hearts forever.
Annie will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband, Jerry; her sister, Elsie Stevulak; her sister-in-law, Mary Habdas; her brother-in-law, Gord Fisher; her nieces and nephews, Brenda Hill, Cathy (Len) Stevulak, Michael (Dana) Stevulak, Lori-anne (Ron) Pansky and Tracy Beaulieu; as well as many other family members and special friends.
She was predeceased by her parents, John and Bernice Habdas; her brothers, William and John Habdas; her sisters-in-law, Shirley Fisher and Eileen Habdas; her brother-in-law, John Stevulak; and her nephew, Terry Habdas.
