Obituary of Annie Marie Throndson
Annie "Marie" Throndson
(September 10, 1931 - October 6, 2023)
Annie "Marie" Throndson of Camrose, Alberta, formerly of Edberg, passed away on Friday, October 6, 2023, at the age of 92 years.
Marie was born in 1931 to Martha & Hjalmer (Jim) Thompson. She was the oldest and grew up helping her Mom and Dad on the farm with her three brothers and one sister. Their family moved into Camrose in 1950.
Marie was confirmed on September 14, 1947, to the Lutheran Congregation. She married Morris Throndson on the 8th day of November 1948. Morris and Marie had four children, Garry, Donna, Connie, and Barry. They lived in Edberg for a few years and then returned to the family farm in 1962, 7 miles NE of Camrose. Marie went to work at Woolworths in 1972 when Morris fell ill and was proud to become a Health Care Aid at Bethany Long Term Care in 1978, where she enjoyed her work immensely. She retired from Bethany in 1992. Morris passed away in 1987, and shortly after, Marie moved off the farm into Camrose where her family frequently gathered. Her home became grand central station for her family and friends and the coffee was always on.
Marie took great pride in her home, her family and her community. She was an active volunteer, a lifetime member of the Royal Purple, member of The Swea Ladies and The Horticulture Group. She continued to volunteer for Rosehaven until 2019.
She was predeceased by her husband Morris Throndson; her Mother Martha (Thompson) Brown; her father Hjalmer (Jim) Thompson; step-father Fred Brown; brothers Larry (Gertie) Thompson, Cliff Thompson, and Wilf (Elsie) Thompson; her Sister Yvonne Folk; and her Daughter Connie Kvale.
Marie is survived by her son Garry Throndson; daughter Donna Rolseth; son Barry Throndson; sister-in-law Bev Thompson; son-in-law Arthur Kvale; ten grandchildren, eighteen great-grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews and many loved friends.
Her light will continue to shine upon all those who knew her.
A Funeral Service was held at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, October 17, 2023, at the Messiah Lutheran Church, officiated by Rev. Bev Swanson.
