Wilson, Ann Louise

Born in Toronto on July 10, 1953, Ann passed away unexpectedly at her home in Meaford on Thursday November 14, 2019 at the age of 66.

Ann enjoyed a career spanning over 15 years with the Canadian Armed Forces serving as a housekeeper and server beginning at the Meaford Land Forces Training Centre and later transferring to Alert in Nunavut before retiring back to Meaford.

She will be sadly missed by her much loved daughters Cynthia of British Columbia, Jennifer of Alberta and Alison of Kitchener and will be remembered also by their father Larry Wilson of Leduc, Alberta.  She will be a sorely missed grandmother of  her six grandchildren.

Ann will be recalled as a dear sister by Gwen Boundy of Meaford and was predeceased by a brother James Meluish and will be recalled as a special aunt to her two nieces and her nephew and their families.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial celebration of Ann’s life will be conducted at a later date to be announced.

    I only met Annie a short five months ago in Alert, and in that short time, I have come to know her as a very hardworking and much loved member of the Alert family, she will be missed by all those that are here now, and those that have come here before me.
    Annie you were a force to be reckoned with and there is hole in our hearts that cannot be filled, Sunday night bingo will not be the same without you.
    Rest in peace my friend because surely heaven has gained another Angel

    Ann was a terrific lady with character class and a wonderful sense of humor. We would always wait in anticipation for the brain freeze while eating ice cream. She will be sorely missed but loved by so many. My deepest condolences to all her family.

    The Wilsons were like another family to me while growing up as I practically lived at their house for a short while. I know she will be greatly missed by so many people. Sending so much love and strength to Cynthia, Jen and Alison during this difficult time.

    Dearest Ann, when we worked together years ago cleaning buildings at the Meaford Tank Range, you were always the light of my day as we would meet at noon and share our lunches with one another. You will surely be missed by so so many…RIP sweet lady, and may God watch over your family, as I’m sure you are watching over them with loving eyes and a huge smile on your face. Sending condolences to your children and grand children….

    I reconnected with my cousin Ann through FB after many years. She was so encouraging and supportive of me during my illness, even though she did not really even know me. Her updates of her times in Alert and out west were always so interesting. She was obviously a devoted and loving Grandma and mom as she would mention her visits with such pride. I will miss her postings and messages, I send my sincere condolences to her entire family.

    We still have a copy of your famous poem “Those flippen Flies”
    THE MANY brain freezes from that wonderful icecream you dare not stay away from. Plus all the great memories we have had over the past 25 years.
    Working together and socially.
    My heart felt love to all Gwen and family and Cynthia, Jennifer and Allison.

    Ann has been my long time friend of 45 years. My heart reaches out to her 3 beautiful daughters and the sweet 6 grandkids Ann adored. We supported each other through ups and downs, births and deaths, moves from Hamilton to Caledonia and finally Meaford. We spent many Thanksgiving holidays together and as many off work times as possible. We shared many hopes and dreams and it saddens me Ann will not fulfil her retirement plans. Ann should have pursued her second career of “stand up comedian”, she often had me in stitches as she recounted her acts in Alert. Ann, my sister from another mother, a piece of my heart is in heaven with you. Guard it gently till we meet again. Hugs to you and you family.

    Ann,

    Getting to know you these past few months was an absolute pleasure. From our warm conversations shared over a cigarette to giving you a scare in the haunted house. It was fun. See you next time.
