<div itemprop="description">ANN UNGERAN<br><br>Forever loved and missed<br><br>It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our wonderful wife, Mother, and Granny on May 1/16 at Grey Nuns Hospital. <br><br>Ann was born in Shandro, AB on December 19, 1924 to Moisa and Mary Kolotylo. She grew up on the family farm with 7 brothers and sisters, and learned early the value of hard work. Her early years were spent helping on the farm, milking cows, working on the threshing crew, and stooking grain. She met a handsome farmer, Bill Ungeran, from across the river at a dance, and recently fondly remembered how she felt dancing with him that first time. Bill and Ann were married May 7, 1950, and together they built a successful farm operation, and raised two children.<br><br>Mom and Dad retired in 1980 and moved to Bruderheim, AB. Mom was sad to leave the farm but happy and excited about living in town. They created a beautiful garden and yard, were active in the Bruderheim Seniors Club, and were recognized for their volunteer work in the community by being named Citizens of the Year in 1999. They travelled to many far off exotic places - Ukraine, where they were able to connect with family, Asia, Australia, Europe, Mexico, and the US. They loved exploring Canada in their motor home for many years.<br><br>In 2005 Mom and Dad moved to a seniors’ apartment in Southfort Gardens, Fort Saskatchewan where they lived for 10 years, forming many great friendships with resident and staff.<br><br>In 2015 health declines resulted in Dad moving to Citadel St. Albert and Mom to Devonshire Village. This separation was difficult for them both, but Mom accepted this new chapter in her life and had a wonderful 5 months at Devonshire.<br><br>Mom's greatest passion was family. She was happiest in the company of her children, and grandchildren, enjoying laughter, good food, and playing with the great grandkids, the lights of her life.<br><br>Mom was grateful for all the good fortune and blessings in her life. As her network of friends grew smaller as she aged, time spent with family became even more important. She loved family traditions and celebrations and was keenly interested in her family's well-being, and especially enjoyed watching her grandsons and great grandkids growing up.<br><br>Mom is forever loved and missed by her husband of nearly 66 years, William (Bill) Ungeran, her children, daughter Alice and her husband Jack Geissler of Edmonton, son Jim Ungeran and his wife Candy of St. Albert, grandsons Darin Kuchka and his wife Niki of Sherwood Park, and Kevin Ungeran of Winnipeg. She will live on in the hearts of her 4 great grandchildren, Billy, Jazlyn, and Cameron Kuchka, and Emily Ungeran. Mom is also survived by her sister Kay Bidniak and husband Sandy of Edmonton, and special nephew David Kolotylo and wife Mavin of Willingdon, and many nieces, nephews and extended family.<br><br>Mom was predeceased by her brothers, Mike, Metro, and Johnny Kolotylo, and sisters, Mary Menis, Nancy Woychuk, Zonnia Reny, and 2 sisters in infancy.<br><br>We would like to thank the staff at Grey Nuns Hospital and Devonshire Village for taking such good care of Mom.<br><br>In lieu of flowers or other tributes, please consider a donation to a favorite charity, or honor her memory by planting flowers this spring, and taking a few moments each day to enjoy them.<br><br><br></div>
