Sheeres AnneSHEERES, Anne   - Born in Bournemouth, England, the only daughter to Gerald and Doreen.


Loving mother to Michael and Janine (Eric); devoted wife to Timothy (predeceased); and doting grandmother of Claire and Adam. Anne passed away peacefully, in her 93rd year.


Anne lived the first part of her life at Henley-on-Thames, where she was mostly raised by Meenie, her governess, to be a proper English girl.


The two shared a lifelong, loving bond, lasting many decades.


Anne attended The Abbey girls boarding school in Redding. In her teens, Anne joined the local tennis club in Whitstable, Kent, where she met her "secret admirer," who wrote her love letters. In 1953, Timothy asked Anne two whopping questions: "will you marry me?" and "will you come to Canada?" all in the same breath!


They left England with $50 and a job waiting for Dad at Clarkson Gordon in Calgary. In 1968, Tim's work with Norcen Energy Resources saw a transfer to Toronto, where they eventually settled for 42 years in a cherished stone and log home in Hogg's Hollow.


Anne continued to see her lifelong girlfriends, Inez, Shirley (from Calgary), Tina and others here in Toronto.


In her later years, Mum slowly drifted into Alzheimer's but still managed to find humour in everyday events, often telling her family how much she loved them and playing her two favourite tunes on the piano into her 90s.


A final Mother's Day was enjoyed by Michael, Janine and Anne on Whatsapp.


Funeral to be held at St. John's York Mills Anglican Church, on June 8, 2023, at 11:00 a.m.


Special thanks to Jessie for looking after Mum during her time at Arthur and Isabel Meighen Manor, and for the wonderful care she received during her final chapter.


Donations to the CNIB or the Alzheimer Society appreciated.
