My mother, Anna Jagodzinski’s spirit left her body on May 6, 2011. Mom was 87 years old; she would have celebrated her birthday on September 6. She is survived by her son, Jan (Brigitte) and grandson, Jeremy. Mom had cousins in Poland and Russia and was dearly embraced by the Kantypowicz and Krzysik families in Edmonton. Mom longed to join her husband of 60 years, Michael, who passed away in June of 2006. Mom had an iron will and was a survivor of many hardships in her life. She worked hard throughout her life and loved her garden. She had laughter in her heart and praise in her soul for the blessings that came to her, accepting her fate as it came. We miss you mom.
