Anna Marie Irma Polfliet was born on May 2, 1919, in Smares, France, to August and Irma (Sinave) Vandendries. As a young child, she moved with her family to Ghent, MN. She was united in marriage to Cyriel Polfliet at St. Eloi Catholic Church in Ghent. In addition to raising her family, Anna worked at a few jobs including for Marshall Produce, the Minneota Manor. For a time she owned the Golden Nugget and sold home interiors. Anna enjoyed going to casinos, watching the Vikings, playing cards and bingo. She also enjoyed listening to the Christian channel and making Belgian Cookies for gifts. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed baking bread and making fried chicken. Anna loved spending time with her family and friends and especially with her faithful companions: Morgan and Snicker. Anna died on Saturday, April 7, 2017, at the Sylvan Court in Canby, MN. She is survived by her children Barb (and Jans) Kor of Madison Lake, MN, Pauline (and Duwayne) Hoffman of Canby, Teri (and Don) Krumwiede of Benson, Mary (and Jerry) DeSmet of Lake Hendricks, Martha (and Jim) Melrose of Porter, Margaret (and Keith) Kindelberger of Ortonville, Michael (and Sandie) Polfliet of Ghent, 35 grandchildren, 86 great-grandchildren, 29 great-great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Remembering Annie brings back good memories of being a neighbor in my teen years, knowing her and the family was an important part of my life. My heartfelt condolences to all of the family, I wish I could be there tomorrow but won't be able to, but my thoughts will be with all of you.

To the Family of Anna Polfliet: In the Bible at Psalms 90:10 it refers to those who live well into their 70s or 80s as being especially strong. Your beloved was blessed with this strength. May that strength trickle down to family and friends helping you to cope in the days ahead. As you cherish warm memories, lean on God for everlasting comfort and good hope, 2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17 for he is close to those brokenhearted Psalms 34:18. My deepest sympathy.
