Annie M. Paffel, age 47, of Brainerd, Minnesota, formerly of Forest Lake, Minnesota, died suddenly Tuesday, January 5, 2021 following health complications. Her father, John Paffel passed in 2012. She is survived by her mother, Diane Paffel Moravec (Terry); children, Miles (Alysia) Halverson, Bridget Halverson, Thomas (Amelia) Kreitz, Matthew Christensen; fiancé, Nigel Ricci; brother, Tom (Lyla) Paffel. After graduating from St. Peter’s Elementary School, she continued to be active at St. Peter’s with the faith formation and youth programs.
