Anne Noreen Simpson

May 17, 1932 - October 28, 2019

Peacefully on Monday, October 28, 2019 at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, in her 88th year.  Beloved wife of “Jack”, Walter John.  Daughter of the late Doris and William Lelliott.  Loving mother of Maureen (Almos Tassonyi), Richard (Karen), Nancy (the late Douglas Austin), Jacqueline (Douglas Whitten) and the late Christopher (Kimberly Cail).  Cherished grandmother of Craig (Kim), Bryan (Jenny), Lindsay (Mike), Michelle, Meghan (Jason), Marin (Joshua), Carleigh, Nicole (Ryan), Rory and Stephen.  Devoted great-grandmother of Matthew, Nora, Jordan, Xander, Liam and Harper.  Sister of John (Vivian) Lelliott and the late William (the late Ada) Lelliott.  Sister-in-law of Shirley (the late Paul) Simpson, the late Eilean (the late Harold) Carlaw, the late Shirley Seguire, and Bill Sequire.  Anne will be sadly missed by her many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.  Alongside Jack, she not only raised a family but built a very successful telecommunications business throughout their 68 years of marriage.  She loved to travel and did so extensively with family, business and later accompanying Jack around the world for international and commonwealth fly fishing competitions.  Together they made many friends across Canada and around the globe.  Anne was an avid gardener, and took pride in her many plants, flowers and deck tomatoes. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at 1 pm at MacCoubrey Funeral Home, 30 King St. E. in Cobourg followed by a reception in the Funeral Home Reception Centre. With heartfelt thanks to Dr. Steven McLellan, Dr. Naresh Kumar, Dr. R.
