Anna Hoofdakker (nee Janzen) longed for Heaven and went home to be with Jesus at the age of 97 years and 7 months on Sunday, September 4, 2022 at Cypress House, Swift Current, SK.

Anna Hoofdakker was born on February 10, 1925 to Jacob & Anna Janzen in the Rosenhof area, SK. The only girl with six brothers, she learned quickly and from a very young age to be strong.

Anna worked as a care aide in a nursing home until she met her husband, when she was 51. Anna Janzen and Peter Hoofdakker were married on May 29, 1976. They enjoyed 40 years together until his passing in 2017. Anna was very lonely after losing Peter and missed him dearly, but she never grumbled or complained.

She was grateful for her family and thankful for how they cared for her. Family was incredibly important to Anna and she prayed for all of them faithfully. It was her prayer that they would all meet one another again in their Heavenly home. Anna’s last words were “Jesus, take me home.” She is no longer suffering and in the presence of her Savior.

Anna was predeceased by her beloved husband, Peter Hoofdakker, on May 1, 2017; her parents, Jacob & Anna Janzen; her brothers and their wives, Jake (Annie) Janzen, George (Helen) Janzen, Cornie (Helen) Janzen, John (Margaret) Janzen, Bill Janzen, and Isaac (Eva) Janzen; her parents-in-law, Peter & Victoria Hoofdakker; her nephews, Timothy Janzen and Barry Janzen; and by her niece, Esther James.

Anna is survived by her sister-in-law, Susan Janzen; and by many nieces and nephews.

The Funeral Service for Anna Hoofdakker was held on Saturday, September 10, 2022 at 2:00 pm from Fairview Bible Church, Swift Current, SK with Pastor Joe Sorgen officiating. “Safe in the Arms of Jesus,” “My Jesus, I Love Thee,” and “It is Well” were sung by the congregation under the leadership of Russel Porter, with Eleanor Tracey serving as pianist. Special music was brought by Anna’s nieces, who sang “All for Jesus” and “Yet Not I, But Christ in Me.” Anna’s testimony was shared by Jim Janzen and the eulogy was given by Sue Price. The ushers in the church were Jake Janzen and Gordon Janzen. Those wishing to view Anna's service may do so here.
