Anna Dorschner

Anna Dorschner passed away peacefully at Rotary Hospice House in Prince George, a few days short of her 90th birthday. She was a beloved mother and grandmother. Anna was predeceased by her husband Karl in 1981 and her daughter Elfriede Burt (nee Dorschner) in 2004. She is survived by her daughter Renate Dorschner (Prince George), grandson Chris Weitzel and great grandson Nicholas Weitzel (Kimberly) and stepsister Antonia Maerkl (Cranbrook)

Anna was born in Germany and was a nurse during WW2. In 1953 she and Karl immigrated to Canada to make a better life for their daughters. After leaving Winnipeg, they finally settled in Cranbrook In 1959. Mom was proud to be a nurse and worked at St. Eugene Hospital and then the East Kootenay Regional Hospital until retirement. After Karl died in 1981, Mom moved to Kelowna and in 2014 came to Prince George.

Mom had a real green thumb and could make anything grow. She enjoyed people and was an astute judge of character. Mom kept her quick wit and positive outlook right to the end. We would like to thank Hospice for the wonderful care and affection Mom received. There will be no service per request. Her ashes will be returned to Cranbrook the end of May.
