Annie Antifaev
June 20, 1931 - March 7, 2021
As our family mourns the passing of our dear Mother, Grandmother and Great-grandmother we would like to share some of Annie's life's journeys. Annie was born to Demian and Emma Raichuk in Stetichevo, Poland. Her family moved to Canada in August 1939, just prior to World War II and settled in the Arelee area. In 1950 Annie married Alex Antifaev and began her life as wife, farmer and mother. Farm life included many jobs like gardening, food preparation with much Ethnic flair, caring for livestock and during her spare time sewing quilts for all the family. In the early 1980's Mom and Dad semi-retired and moved to Perdue where they continued gardening and lesser jobs on the farm. Six years after Dad passed away Mom choose to move to Saskatoon where she continued to live for the next four years.
Annie is survived by her three children: Gwen, Viola (Gary), and Robert (Nellie); brother Fred; grandchildren; Ryan, Hawk (Kalin), Vicki, Eleanor (Blaine) and Amanda; great grandchildren Ethan, Scarlette and Athena, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews. Annie was predeceased by her parents Demian and Emma, husband Alex, brother Walter, sisters Ruby, Nettie and Mary, and son Glen.
Lastly Annie said, “We all may go to different churches, but in the end we all walk together.”
Our family extends our deep appreciation to all the health care supporters involved in the last days of Annie's life.
Due to COVID restrictions, a private family graveside service will take place at the Arelee Mennonite Brethren Cemetery at a later date.
In lieu of flowers donations in Annie's memory may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association.
