War Brides in Alberta
Jeanne Marchais was 12 when war was declared in lovely Loire Valley, France, home to scenic vineyards, fertile farmlands & medieval chateaux. In 1945, she met Canadian soldier Max Pfannmuller. In 1946 the newlyweds returned to his family farm, in the Mayerthorpe area. Our speaker, Anna-Lynn Sanche will share the contributions made by her remarkable mother who was
1 of 100 known French war brides who came to Canada. By maintaining close ties with other war brides & by making routine visits to France, Jeanne kept her culture alive. She was an early member of the Alberta War Brides Association. Anna-Lynn now continues this legacy & is preserving the history of the Canadian War Brides.
