With incredible sadness, we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved wife, mother and grandma. Her memory will be forever cherished by the love of her life Malcolm, and children Michelle Kelly (Chris), Deborah Laird (Doug), Pamela Hall (Andy), Tammy Mitchell (Rev), Lonni Meisner (Steve) and the late Fred Mowat.
She will be dearly missed by her “earthly angels”, grandchildren Cole, Kaitlyn, Sean, Jessica, Danielle, Ryan, Jackie, Heidi, Katara, Dustin, Davi, Jenay and Alex. Much loved Great Gramma Heather to Davies, Zach, Keegan, Jack, Elliott, Courtenay, Carson, Parker and the late Makai. Cherished lifelong friend of Marianne Rosier.
Predeceased by parents Eileen (nee Finnegan) and Alexander Mowat, sisters Beverley, Mamie, Patsy, Gail, Grace and brothers Donnie, Terrance and Byron. Survived by sister Muriel. She will be fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews, along with her coffee ladies, bowling league and former colleagues of the Peel District School Board.
Mom and dad enjoyed exploring and shared many road trip adventures across North America; they were fortunate to have travelled to Hawaii and many countries in Europe in recent years. It will be a joyous day when they can be “on the road again” together.
Mom was a very special woman; she treated everyone she met with dignity and respect, no matter their “station” in life. It was important to her to learn people’s names and get to know them; she made many friends with staff in coffee shops, restaurants and even drive-thrus! Mom never missed an opportunity to express care and concern to everyone; she truly was “Mother” to many.
Special thanks to the in-home nursing team from Care Partners, and heartfelt gratitude to the amazing staff and volunteers at Ian Anderson House; their kind and compassionate care for mom during her final days ensured she was comfortable, happy and at peace.
There will be a private family visitation at 2:00pm on Tuesday September 1st, followed by a public graveside service at 2:30pm. Meadowvale Cemetery, 7732 Mavis Road, Brampton (905-451-3716). In lieu of flowers, please consider making a memorial donation to Ian Anderson House.
