The family of the late Anne Baron age 86 of Yorkton, SK sadly announce her passing on August 16, 2021 at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre.
How do you sum up almost 87 years of sunrises and sunsets; of laughter, struggle, triumph, sadness and extraordinary, unconditional love? I guess one could reference the stats: born September 25th, 1934; married to Joseph Baron on August 4th, 1956; gave birth to Robert Baron in 1962 and Crystal Baron in 1967; departed this physical world on August 16th, 2021. But stats are not life and Anne (Korolek) Baron embodied everything that life is.
As the 11th of 13 children, Anne was destined to have a strong sense of family. And isn’t family what life is really all about? From an early age, she seamlessly weaved the words, “team” and “work” together long before the phrase, “teamwork” found a place in common vernacular. Anne approached everything she did with a sense of adventure, even when the struggle very much became real. She never knew the meaning of the words, “greed,” or “jealousy,” but the words, “generosity” and “love?” - those words she mastered with ease. Always giving of herself to serve others, to lend a helping hand where she could, to sacrifice of herself to make another life easier, Anne embodied what it is to be a humanitarian.
Fiercely independent and strong willed, Anne was a lady who knew what she wanted and knew how to take care of what she had. She believed in being prepared and would often joke that she lived life the way she drove her car: on a full tank of gas. Her wit and sense of humour gave her strength and like her children, never left her side.
Anne never craved the spotlight, but she yearned for sunlight. She preferred to live her life outdoors. And when her physical body became less cooperative, she continued to feed her spirit with fresh air and sunshine, by simply and quietly sitting in her back yard as she pondered the seemingly chaotic flight patterns of the birds above.
Anne has now joined the many loved ones who have flown before her. And to those of us who remain on this earth, know that Anne has not left us. And if you take a moment to simply and quietly sit outside to watch the sun fade into the horizon, look to the sky above. Anne’s spirit is flying free and that flock of birds you see? Well, Anne may very well be the bird leading that flock.
Anne’s ashes will be interred in the columbarium at the Yorkton Memorial Gardens during a private service
Should friends so desire, donations in memory of Anne may be made to a charity of ones choice.
