Obituary of ANNE ZAHARA

August 30, 1925 – April 16, 2022


It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that daughters Lori and Donna announce the sudden passing of their beloved mother on April 16, 2022, at the Grace Hospital. She was 96 years of age.


Anne was born August 30, 1925 on the farm near Bruno, Saskatchewan, to Nick and Mary (née Smood) Thoms. She is survived by her sister Helen Palchinski, brother Frank (Jean) Thoms, sisters-in-law Olga Thoms and Rita Thoms, and by numerous nieces and nephews. Anne is predeceased by her husband, Joseph, parents Nick and Mary Thoms, brothers John, Peter, Ernest, and Roman Thoms, and brother Roman in infancy, as well as sisters-in-law Jennie Lofstrom and Mary Marr, brother-in-law Mike Zahara, and nephews Derek, Gerard, Brian, and Eugene Thoms.


Anne was very active in the St. Joseph Church Women’s League and a longtime parishioner. She was outgoing, kind, generous, and loved to cook, bake, entertain, and welcomed everyone to her home. Anne was also known for her beautiful fruit arrangements and creative nature. She got along with everyone she met.


Funeral Liturgy will be on Saturday, April 23, 1:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Ukrainian Catholic Church on 250 Jefferson Avenue. If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made for a memorial mass.


Mom, we love you and will miss you until we meet again. Chloe, our beloved dog, misses her Nana!


Forever in our memories!
