Last updated 11/2/2021 at 11:27am
Our Holy Father called upon our loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great grandmother, friend and finest gardener to look after and tend the flower and vegetable gardens in Heaven. Anna Rismon passed away at the Northern Montana Care Center early Friday morning, October 15, 2021.
Anna was born October 5, 1939, to Monica (Matz) and Florian Mosbrucker at Sacred Heart Hospital in Havre, Montana. She was the youngest of seven children and grew up on the family farm north of Havre. She attended Staton Coulee country school through eighth grade and then attended and graduated from Havre Central High School in spring 1957.
Growing up north of Havre she met the love of her life, Russell Rismon, whose family also farmed north of Havre. Anna and Russell were married February 14, 1958, at St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church in Havre. Anna and Russell shared an eternal love that was beyond measure. Anna's first love was being a wife to her husband. She was devoted to their marriage, friendship, and partnership. They were not only partners in marriage, but also loved, lived, and were devoted to their lifelong vocation as farmers.
Mom's second love was for her five daughters. Her daughters were raised with deep family values of sharing, caring, and discipline. Anna taught her daughters independence, perseverance, the importance of lending a helping hand, strong work ethic, and the willingness to go the extra mile. It gave Anna great joy to see her children carry on her example of love, commitment, and friendship with one another and pass forward these influences to their children and others.
Grandma Anna's life was further blessed and nothing gave her greater joy than being a "Grandma." Each grandkid and great-grandkid held a special place in her heart. She took the time to play, laugh and giggle, cuddle, hug, advise, and best of all listen. Her grandchildren have many fond memories of baking cookies, tea parties, dress up, playing Old Maid, Twister, Yahtzee and Scrabble, picking raspberries, taking supper to the harvest field, celebrating birthdays and holidays, and always gathering to share amazing meals with family and friends – "no one ever went hungry at Grandma Anna's table."
Anna is survived by her loving husband of 63 years, Russell; her children, Wendy Rismon of Lewiston, ID, Denise (Matt) Ladenburg of Havre, Julie Brown of Helena, Lori (Michael a.k.a. Pete) Peterson of Helena and Monica (Eric) Coleman of Havre. She is also survived by her eight grandchildren, Michael Ladenburg (Cassie), Scott Ladenburg, Jessica Tucker (Troy), Garrett Brown, Sierra Brown, Haleigh Peterson, Sarah Peterson, and Amber Coleman, and three great-grandchildren, Jace Ladenburg, Cooper Ladenburg and Kynnedi Ladenburg, who have been greatly impacted by her unconditional and supportive love. Along with her legacy, Anna leaves behind numerous friends and relatives who have been touched by her love and kindness.
Anna was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Jennie Hanson, Pat Garding, Mary Armstrong, Odelia Mitschke, and Margaret McNair; and brother, Frank Mosbrucker.
