Anna Babin

Anna Susanne Babin, age 25, died unxpectedly on Sunday, March 14, 2021 at her home in Eyota, Minnesota.

Anna lost her battle with her personal struggles and pain. It was said by those she loved that she was the bridge between many people and the bandage that healed their wounds. She had a heart of gold and a smile that could light up any room. She was very generous and giving to anyone who needed it. Anna hid her personal struggles from those she loved so as not to worry or hurt them. She will be dearly missed by everyone who loved and knew her.

Anna was born Anastasia Bychkova in Zhykova, Russia. She was adopted by John and Rhonda (Rees) Babin in 2004.

Anna was preceded in death by her grandparents Eileen, Timothy and Jerry.

Anna is survived by her father, John (Shirley), her mother Rhonda, her siblings Sergei and Daria, her grandparents Susanne and Nancy, uncles Greg (Lori), Keith (Nancy) and Ken (Lindsey), aunt Brenda (Jim) and her fiancé James and her future stepchildren Tommy, Zandria, Little James, Bordan, Ava, Aydren, Kinnedy and Rowland.

  1. Anna had the most magnificent smile that came straight from the heart, and her very presence warmed the room when she entered. Her hugs were genuine and you were happy to be in the same room as Anna. She was a very loving and caring young lady, and our family was privileged to celebrate her 21st birthday with her, a day I will never forget. Anna was bubbly and enthusiastic. I am so thankful we had that time with Anna. Rest well.

  2. Rest In Peace love. She was one of the kindest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet and get to know. Love you forever and ever

  3. Anna was my childhood best friend. We shared many firsts together including her being the first person I trusted to share all my “secrets” with. She was the most caring person, and always willing to listen. She had a fiery spirit which I have always admired. She pushed me to be a more creative and empathetic person. Her impact on the world will never be forgotten. Even though over the years we slowly lost constant contact she was and will always be apart of me. Reminding me to be adventurous, kind, and to always fight for what I believe in. She will be deeply missed. My heart goes out to the Babin family, whom I send my deepest condolences and warmest hugs.

    Fair travels. May the God of your understanding guide you to the next place.


  5. I will always remember when Anna and Sergei and Daria came to America, my family and I were out side and as soon as they got home John and Rhonda came over to introduce Anna and Sergei and Daria to my kids. Sergei and Daria were really quit but Anna wasn’t afraid to talk to us even though she didn’t know much English. She was a real sport and gave it her all. I always looked forward to hearing about the kids almost like they were part of our family. Anna will be missed, but hope to see her in heaven again, like Paul wrote in Rom 8:38-39 nothing can separate us from Gods love not even death. She was special just like all the kids were and my heart goes out to the Babin family. She will be missed.

  7. My dear Anna
    You were adopted
    With love and open arms
    My biggest hope was
    For you to be happy
    I love you

    Our time together was precious
    My memories of you will last forever
    Your life was too short
    My heart is broken
    I miss you

    I will truly never know
    How your past in Russia haunted you
    How your personal struggles troubled you
    Was I a good father
    Did I do enough for you
    I am sorry

    You had an independent spirit
    A mind of you own
    You always did things your way
    Even when we disagreed
    I am okay

    I can only cry
    As you walk with your angel
    To your peace and harmony
    In the sky
    Now I have to say goodbye
