Lois died peacefully at Lakeridge Hospital in Oshawa. Beloved wife of the late James Bruce Annand. Loving mother of Susan Pott, Bruce Annand (deceased), Robert Annand (Sarah), Mary Soye (Des) and Jane Luck (Don). Lois will be warmly remembered by her grandchildren Christine (Mike) and Laura (Mike); Sarah (Cody), Megan (Rylan) and Katie (Ryan); Conor (Alyssa) and Julia (Dan); and Jessamine (Ariel) and Zara. Lois will have a place in the hearts of her great-grandchildren Nolan, Emily, Liam, Emberleigh Lois and Kaden. She was the cherished aunt of Lyn Gannon (Brian), Paul Patterson (Leslie), Graham Henderson (Margo) and Ross Henderson (Jane). Lois is predeceased by her parents Georgie and Herb Errett and sister Muriel Patterson (Ron).
Lois grew up in Merrickville, Ontario. She trained as a nurse at Toronto General Hospital and then moved to Oshawa, where she met her future husband Bruce at the tennis club, and where they lived the rest of their lives. She enjoyed living in the Harmony Hill Retirement Community for the past five years, reuniting with old friends and making new ones. Lois had many adventures over the years which her outstanding memory allowed her to share with us right up to the end. Her family meant the world to her and she took great interest in everything happening in their lives.
The family would like to thank the Palliative Care team at Lakeridge Hospital Oshawa for their kindness and compassion.
Visitation will be held at Thornton Funeral Centre and Cemetery, 1200 Thornton Road, Oshawa on Wednesday, September 6 at 11:00 am immediately followed by a Service at 12:00 pm, interment and a lunch reception.
