On a sunny Monday afternoon, October 7, 2019 at LHSC- University Hospital, London, Ann passed away peacefully to start the next step in her eternal journey. Ann is survived by her sister, Inge Mowat, brother-in-law Peter Darbishire, nieces Janet Mowat of New York, Jennifer Kucey and Christine Overweel of Toronto, nephews Stephen Darbishire of Granton and Chris and Vicki Darbishire of Toronto, and friends too numerous to mention. Ann was predeceased by her brother Wim, sister Julia and her parents, Jan and Margaret Overweel. Ann’s greatest joy in life was spending time in her vegetable gardens in the summer and taking the long winter months to plan next year’s crop. Generous to a fault and always ready to embrace others less fortunate than herself, Ann held tightly to her principles and lived life on her own terms. All who knew and loved her wish her godspeed and eternal peace.
A Celebration of Ann’s life will be held at the Hensall Heritage Hall, 108 King Street, Hensall, on Sunday, November 17th from 2 – 5 PM, words of remembrance at 3 PM. Cremation has taken place, Haskett Funeral Home, Exeter entrusted with arrangements.
Donations to the Humane Society of London and Middlesex would be appreciated by the family.
