With deep sense of sorrow and loss, our family announces the passing of our beloved mother, Anne Elizabeth Bartel, on Saturday, January 11th, 2020.
Anne is survived by her three children Tarek, Sarah and Nora Elsokari from Edmonton and her brother Mark Bartel and niece Annalise Bartel from Ontario.
She was predeceased by her parents Maxwell and Emily and her brother Freddie.
She was a blessing and joy to all who knew her. She touched the lives of so many with her kind heart and gentle soul. Her love of books and reading was passed on to so many children during her career working as a librarian for over 20 years in the Edmonton Public School system.
Anne passed away peacefully in her home at the age of 71. She will remain in the hearts of her family and friends.
