Peacefully on December 15, 2023, Anne was called home to be with her Lord and Savior at the age of 93 years.
She is survived by her children Marlene, David, and Tim (Barb), daughter in law Irma, grandchildren Danny, Anna (Joe), Tyler (Pam), Tiffany, Amanda, Adina (Steven), Amy (Kelsey) and great grandchildren, Maverick, Molly, Angelina, Thomas, Teighan and Joshua. She was predeceased by her husband Oto Albright and son Allan Albright.
Also, left to cherish her memory are 7 siblings, Milly, Eileen, Ruth, Bety, Darlene, Evelyn, and Garry as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
Anne was predeceased by her parents Paul and Sylvia Nemetchek, and 10 siblings, Mary, Jiri and Anna in infancy, Thomas, Doreen, Bernie, Melvin in infancy, Vera, Jerry, and Shirley.
Anne was an extraordinarily kind, generous and loving wife, mother, sister, and friend. Her faith in God guided her through life.
Anne grew up as the surviving, second oldest of 18 children on the family farm near Minitonas, Manitoba. She often told how, being one of the oldest children, it was her duty to bring her siblings to school with horse and buggy during the winter months. In her later teens she went to work in Winnipeg, sometimes living with her older sister Mary and working as a server in several Cafes, most notably Kelekis Restaurant on Main Street. She would always return home to help her parents on the farm during the summer months.
In November 1952, Anne married Oto Albright. They took over the Albright family farm and lived there
till 1972. After a major fire that destroyed their 5-year-old house, they bought another farm property 2 miles north of Minitonas where they resided till 1998. Oto then retired from farming, and they moved to Swan River.
Although Anne helped tirelessly with the farming for most of her years, in her early 50’s, she decided to add additional careers. Her expertise in cleaning led to an evening cleaning job at the Swan Valley Lodge. Thereafter she decided to upgrade her education. In 1982 she took a Health Care Aid/Home Helper course and in 1987 a Red River College Health Care Aid course which enabled her to work for Home Care and at Swan River Valley Personal Care Home as a Health Care Aid. She enjoyed helping people a lot and worked there till the age of 75.
Anne was very friendly, outgoing, and loved hosting family and other guests in her home, providing them with delicious meals. She was an excellent cook and baker and loved to share her traditional recipes.
Anne enjoyed gardening, cooking, and cleaning to an extreme. She always needed her house to be spotless and to stay busy. Even in her retirement years when she moved to Winnipeg in 2006 after Oto’s passing, she made sure to get involved at Centerpoint Church where she enjoyed being part of the Senior’s group. She also enjoyed volunteering at Logan House right up to months before she had to have a leg amputated. In 2021 when she moved into Donwood Personal Care Home, she insisted on helping, folding towels, and participating in the activities there.

The family would like to acknowledge and give special thanks to the nurses and staff at Donwood
Personal Care Home for their loving and compassionate care of Anne over the last 2 ½ years.
