MENNAMAN, Anja (nee Franken) -

Passed gracefully and peacefully at home, surrounded by family, September 15, 2014, far too soon, in her 57th year.

Anja will be loved and cherished beyond words every day by her loving husband Dave, and her beloved children of whom she was so proud, daughter Marika (Jeffery) and son Connor (Ally).

Predeceased by her father "Joe" and mother Mia.

Survived by her brother Bob and wife Heidi, and nieces and nephew Sarah, Katie, and Josh, and brother John.

Anja will be missed by Dave's parents, Ian and Margaret, brother Alan and wife Judy, their children, and Micaela. Anja also has an abundance of lifelong friends and colleagues (you know who you are), whose friendship, understanding, and compassion comforted her every day.

Anja fought her cancer with strength, determination, and courage - the same attributes that fueled her lifelong passion for running.

She completed her first marathon, the Hamilton Road 2 Hope in November 2013. She completed three Around the Bay Road Races, and many other runs throughout her life. Anja will be missed by her knitting needles and quilting blocks. She will be missed by her running shoes, her bike, and her kayak. She will be missed by the Confederation Waterfront Trail, and the trails and waterways of Cape Cod, our "second home". And she will be missed by the children and families she served so selflessly, and with such compassion and dedication as a Social Worker at the HWDSB.

In lieu of flowers, Anja would be honoured by the supporting of Tim Horton's Camp, McMaster Kids Camp, or any community agency that endorses a "Send a Kid to Camp" program.

Thank you to all the members of the palliative team along the way. Especially Bridget ("Ingrid") and Theresa from St. Joseph's Home Care, whose quality and comforting care was exceeded by their dedication, dignity, and compassion.

A very special thank you to Dave's co-workers, whose compassion, support, and assistance will never be forgotten.

 Following a private family ceremony, please join us in a celebration of Anja's life on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at the Hamilton Waterfront Trust Centre, 47 Discovery Drive, Hamilton, between 3 - 6 p.m.

If only we could all have the vigour for life that Anja possesses. As she believed:

Born in Amherst and raised in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, he moved to Hamilton in 1948 where he soon met the love of his life, Jacqueline.

Married in 1949, Alex and Jackie enjoyed a happy and fulfilling life together for 64 years, sharing a large circle of friends, camping in Northern Ontario and travelling across Canada and the United States. They built their home in 1956 where they enjoyed long term neighbours over the years.

His favourite hobby was canoe tripping with family and close friends for over 40 years until his late 70's.

Alex was a proud employee for 37 years of Dofasco and enjoyed almost 30 years of retirement. T

he family would like to thank the staff at Caroline Place Retirement Home where Alex resided for the past 19 months for their excellent care and concern as well as the Doctors and Staff at Juravinski Hospital F3 for their care during his past week.

Cremation has taken place and at his request there will be no formal funeral. A visitation/celebration of life will take place on Saturday, September 20th at St. Michael's Anglican Church hall, 1188 Fennell Avenue East from 2-4 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or St. Michael's Anglican Church would be appreciated.

The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand. The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land. The music stops, and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains..... For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.

And as Alex would say to his Grandchildren…"See you in the funnies"!
