FICYCH, Anna (nee Zidkovich) Anna died peacefully on the morning of December 3, 2011 with her husband of 41 years, Samuel, by her side. Anna was born on November 19, 1945 in Biggar, Saskatchewan, the fifth child to Michael and Nettie (Novitski) Zidkovich. Anna grew up a strong willed farm girl with a generous disposition; but farming was not in her blood. After graduating high school and Business College in Saskatoon Anna's eyes looked East moving to Winnipeg in 1965 where she met and married Samuel in 1970. Together their lives and careers took them to Montreal in 1976 and Toronto in 1995. Regardless of where they lived, their home was an open door for others to stay and enjoy their hospitality. Anna's family roots were important to her and she would frequently travel to home to help her parents as they transitioned through various seasons of life. Anna could always be counted on as an attentive listener, to enjoy a good coffee, and to organize and carry out big events, including her mother's recent 100th birthday party this past August. After retirement, Anna volunteered at various endeavours. Anna was predeceased by her father Michael, her brother John and Samuel's parents. Mourning her loss is her husband Samuel, her Mother Nettie Zidkovich and many friends and family; sister Vera and Dave Friesen, brother Paul and Ione Zidkovich, sister Mary and Warren Kroeker, sister-in-law Kalene & Stan Lipka, brother Alexander & Cheryl Zidkovich, brother Wes and Marlyn Zidkovich, sister-in-law Patti & Peter Kuntz, sister-in-law Irene Olynyk, brother-in-law Larry Ficych & Sue Forster and many nieces and nephews. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter "Neweduk-Erin Mills" Chapel, 1981 Dundas St. W., Mississauga (just east of Erin Mills Pkwy), from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. on Friday. A Service celebrating Anna's Life will be held on Saturday, December 10, 2011 at Sheridan Park Alliance Church, 2440 Fifth Line, Mississauga at 11 a.m. with visitation beginning at 10 a.m. Burial will be at Biggar Cemetery, Biggar, Saskatchewan. For those who wish, donations may be made in Anna's memory to Sheridan Park Alliance Church Special Building Fund Accessibility Project would be appreciated.
