In memory of

Ann Mae Young

May 7, 1928 -  August 12, 2023

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Ann Young. Ann passed away peacefully on Saturday August 12th at 95 years of age at her residence in Toronto. Ann moved from her hometown of Lindsay, Ontario to Toronto as a young woman and worked in the financial sector. In time, she met her future husband Jim through her church association.

Ann leaves behind her beloved husband James (Jim) L. Young, her children Gary, Dianne and James, along with daughter in-law, Tina and late son-in-law, Ian. She will be fondly remembered by extended family, Audrey and Amber. Ann loved her grandchildren James, Lauren, Jonathan, Jamie, Samantha and great grandson Brody. She was a friend to her surviving sister-in-law, Helen as well as her late brother in-law, Duncan. With the upcoming wedding of her grandson, James, Ann was very much looking forward to welcoming Sarah as a member of the family.

Ann was a loving and dedicated wife and mother who was devoted to her family. She was known for her sense of humour and warmth and whose gentle presence put everyone at ease. She was thoughtful and caring and loved life and all that it had to offer. We will forever miss her smile and laughter and her warm, caring and loving nature.

Ann and her husband Jim enjoyed many common interests throughout their 63 years of marriage. They enjoyed travel and especially their many excursions to Florida which was a tradition that began on their honeymoon. Ann and Jim were avid sports fans and mom’s number one passion was following her beloved Toronto Blue Jays. Ann’s favourite activity was her daily walking routine that continued right into her senior years. She enjoyed anything that involved family and especially being around her grandchildren.

Visitation will take place at Mount Pleasant Funeral Centre on Monday, August 21 at 1:00 pm followed by a memorial service at 2:00 pm. A private interment will follow. Light refreshments will be served after the service. Donations can be made to The Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation.

James and family . I never met your Mom, but through Helen and all of your communication, I felt that I knew her. May your family togetherness sustain you through your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

James, my thoughts are with you and your family.

Our parents play a huge role in defining who we are and, well, Moms have that extra influence.

Your kindness, generosity and thoughtfulness are all traits that I recall you describing your Mom having. Same is true of independence and joy of life. We should celebrate the impact that Moms have had on us and, the positive impact that we all have had on the world as a result.

May the great memories never fade away, may their impact endure for generations to come.

Our hearts go out to you at the difficult time. We never had the privilege of meeting Ann, but we know what a force she was in our friend James’ life and how much she was loved by all.
Our deepest sympathies,
