A Roedde House Tweet-up. Be QRator for a day!

Anna Catherine Roedde


Anna worked as a nurse at the Vancouver General Hospital. In a tragic turn of events, the Roeddes’ youngest daughter, 28 years old, was murdered during a late-night shift. Benito Pasquale, a mentally ill patient, slashed her neck with a razor. In critical condition for 30 hours, she died on Christmas day. Due to the violence of the act and the prominence of the Roedde family, the incident was front page news for a while. Sailboats in the city flew at half-mast on the day of Anna Catherine’s death.

 Hint: In the same year of Anna Catherine’s untimely death, Gustav and Matilda sold the house and moved with the family to a new residence, they took with them this bright lady.
