Anna “Annie” Moore was born on July 9, 1923, to Gustav and Paulina (nee Marshall) Freier in Bernie, Manitoba but then quickly moved to Thunder Creek where she lived from 1924-1929 and then onward to the Asessippi District and finally to Russell. She went to school in Asessippi and Hudson School District from grade 1 to grade 8 and then stayed home to help on the farm. She met Rudolph Moore and got married on November 20, 1945; They initially farmed with his parents but found a farm to rent in 1946 where they quickly made it their home for over seventeen years. During their years they were blessed with three sons and one daughter; Arnold in 1947, Vernon in 1950, Carl in 1953, and Marleen in 1960. In 1963 they moved to Arden and continued mixed farming for the next ten years. In 1973 they ventured west to Brooks, Alberta to be closer to the boys who had moved to Calgary and started new careers in their lives. Anna excelled in her favorite new job as a gardener at the Alberta Horticultural research Center in Brooks. Rudolph worked as a construction and maintenance repair supervisor. Rudolph passed away on April 22,1999. Anna stayed in their Brooks home for another 10 years before moving to a senior center in Brooks in 2009 and after another 6 years, in 2015 she moved to a senior center in Edmonton to be closer to her daughter and sons. In 2018 she again moved to new home, a long term care home, after her stroke. Anna had a real passion for gardening and her home in Brooks was always beautiful and the garden always flourished.
