Anne Lenore Williamson - “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Tim. 4:6-8.
Passed away peacefully at home on March 29, 2020, in her 75th year.

Anne was the loving partner of Garry Young, beloved mother of Trevor and Allison (Michael), proud grandmother of Maddison and Oalee, devoted sister of Jane and Tom (Linda) and predeceased by Bob (Marilynne), dedicated daughter of the late Doris and Tom Williamson, and cherished aunt, cousin and friend of many.

Anne worked as a high school teacher for the Toronto, London and York Region District School Boards.
All who knew Anne will miss her passion for fine food, antiques, reading, shopping and Christmas (the “red and green virus”). Anne will be forever remembered for her sense of humour and articulate nature. The family would like to thank the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre and Princess Margaret Hospital.
Friends may call at Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home, 157 Main Street S., Newmarket, ON, at a date to be determined in the future.

Memorial donations may be made to Amnesty International Canada, or as per Anne’s request, a random act of kindness freely be given to another being.

Aub Smith just told me about Ann's passing today while we were corresponding about another colleague lost. My condolences to the family. Gary, I remember you both very well. Ann became our Business Department Head when I was teaching at Williams S.S. She did have a zest for life, for sure. Loss of a good partner is so very difficult. We miss them dearly, even years after. But, oh the great memories .... They help us through.

Gary, I still have the water colour painting of poppies I bought at one of your art shows. It hangs in my dining area along with a painting of a local artist here in Collingwood. Every time I look at it I think of you both, and now that will have a special meaning.

Take care. Be well.
I still have one of your

Although you cannot hear her
voice or see her smile no more,
your mother walks beside you still
just as she did before.
She listens to your stories and
she wipes away your tears;
she wraps her arms around you
and she understands your fears.

It's just she isn't visible
to see with human eye,
but talk to her in silence and
her spirit will reply.
You will feel the love she has for you -
you will hear her in your heart;
she has left her human body but
your souls will never part.

Anne had such a zest for life, and enjoyed it to the fullest. She always showed empathy and compassion towards others. She was one of the kindest, most loving, and generous friends that I have ever had the honour and privilege of knowing. 
Anne and Garry took me under their wings over seven years ago, after the death of my husband, George. They quickly became family, and added so much joy and happiness to my life. They took pleasure in surprising me with new adventures, often involving a lovely drive through the country, ending up in a small town for lunch or dinner. We had so many great adventures together! 
In the mornings, Anne would always be sitting on their front step, waiting for neighbours to join her and Garry for a fresh cup of coffee and a chat. I will really miss those family chats and drives that we shared. 
I hope that you are enjoying a cup of freshly brewed coffee and an apple fritter up in heaven, Anne!
Forever in my heart,
June 💗💗💗

To Anne's Dear family and our Dear Allison , Gary , Trevor , Jane and Tom
Oh how much she wanted to be the same age as me ...only a few more weeks, but it was not to be.
Anne fought and fought and never gave up. Memories of our London day camp and at over night camp too, we met and somehow even though She lived in the south end and Me in the north end, we knew so many of the same people, we became family when our Michael met and married your Allison. Well we celebrated each others holidays, this year will be different
for everyone but Anne's memory will live on in all of our hearts. Our most sincere condolence to everyone.
Virtual hugs, lots of love..Joanie and Murray
