Annie was a twin and

was raised on a farm

south east of Berwick and

received her education at

a country school across

the fields from her home.

She graduated from the

marriage to John P.

Catholic Church in Fulda,

North Dakota. Following

their marriage, they lived

a short time in Towner

before moving to the

Burckhard family farm,

which was across the field

from where she was born.

They raised their family

on that family farm and

farmed small grains and

had a dairy herd. Annie

helped milk the cows and

helped in the hay fields in

the summer, along John’s

side, while being a loving

mother, managing a

household of 9 children

and also raised a big gar-

den. In 1987, the couple

retired and moved to Rug-

by. In January of 2006,

they moved to an apart-

ment in Minot. John died

in 2008. Annie moved to

Elmcraft Assisted Living

Center in Minot in No-

vember of 2019 and on

December 28, 2020, she

moved to the Heart of

America Care Center in

Rugby until her death.

She was a member of the

Christian Mothers,

Catholic Order of Fores-

ters, Fulda St. Anselm’s

Church choir and sang

with a group that sang in

German for functions

around the area and state.

She was also a member of

the Little Flower Catholic

Church in Rugby and Our

Lady of Grace Catholic

Church in Minot. She en-

joyed gardening, sewing,

reading, baking and cook-
