Adrian Males Obituary, Death – Anne Marie Van Male-Adrian, the cherished wife of Okotoks resident Hank Adrian, passed away on March 21, 2011, at the age of 69 years old. Anne was a kind and generous soul who cherished life and brought joy to the hearts of everyone who was fortunate enough to call her a friend. She had a head start on her peers, thus she was able to view obstacles in her path as opportunities for growth rather than roadblocks. Oakburn, Manitoba is the place where Anne was born to parents who came from another country (Emily and Stanley Skavinski).
When she not only completed her education but also went on to become a teacher, her parents felt a great sense of pride. She decided to further her education and eventually became an excellent gardener. Her flowers were evidence of her vivacious spirit. She was the proprietor of several profitable enterprises. Her imaginative dishes were the work of a culinary mastermind in the kitchen. Her most recent job was as a driver with Calgary Transit for a total of twelve years. She had a deep appreciation for both her coworkers and the people she served. In addition to her devoted husband, Hank Adrian, she is survived by her stepchildren, her sister Mary, and a large number of other members of her family and friends.
She is no longer suffering and is looking down from heaven with a smile on her face. On Tuesday, March 29, 2011, at 2:00 p.m., Funeral Services will be held at the McINNIS & HOLLOWAYS Fish Creek Chapel located at 14441 Bannister Road S.E. in Fish Creek, Alberta.
