Cernigoj , Anna
Anna Cernigoj passed away peacefully on March 2, 2012 at the age of 89. She was predeceased by her husband Gregor in 2000. Born in Podkraj, Slovenia Anna immigrated to Canada to join Gregor to raise their family in Thunder Bay. A loving mother and proud grandmother, Anna has six children: Irene (Doug), Mary (Ray), George, Andy (Pauline), Margaret and Sandy (Helena); eight grandchildren: Nahanni, Greg, Aaron, Stefan, Jesse, Mike, Lucas and James; and three great-grandchildren: Connar, Jacob and Megan. Anna is also survived by her sister Augusta, niece Susan and nephew Bill in Thunder Bay and family members in Sweden and Slovenia. Known for her warmth and loving ways Anna took pride in everything she did. She was a great cook who enjoyed making soup, streudel, cabbage rolls and perogies to share with family and friends. She had a penchant for cleaning and her immaculate home was warm and welcoming to all. She had an amazing green thumb and summers were spent tending her vegetable garden and beautiful flowers. Her grandchildren will remember a grandma who was an outstanding basement bowler and who chased them around the house playing "slipper tag". Playing was always followed by a hearty meal of homemade soup. Anna will be remembered as a strong hardworking woman full of vitality who loved her family. She was a devout Catholic and long time member of the Catholic Womans League. As a friend she was always there to give support and lend a helping hand. Anna will be dearly missed by her children and friends. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, March 6, 2012 when family and friends will gather in Our Lady of Loretto R.C. Church for the Funeral Mass beginning at 11:00 a.m. celebrated by Rev. Rey Sorgon. The interment will follow in St. Andrew's R.C. Cemetery. As expressions of sympathy memorials to the charity of your choice would be appreciated. The arrangements are in care of the Sargent & Son Funeral Directors, 21 N. Court Street.
