STEELE – Annie

 

The Steele family sadly announces the passing of our beloved mother Annie Steele on Tuesday  September 22, 2020 while in her 95th year. Born October 3, 1925 to Scottish parents Catherine and Alexander MacPherson in the Hamlet of Kinloch Rannoch, Scotland.

 

Annie was predeceased by her husband of sixty four years Gordon (dc. 2005), her parents and one sister Binky.  Devoted mother of four children, Jackie Pletsch (Murray), Sandi Lewis, Dwayne Steele (Irene), and George Steele (Barbara).  Will be sadly missed by grandchildren, Dana, Lori, Mike, Stephanie, Justin, Megan and great grandchildren Macy, Matthew, Brennan, Isaac, Miles, Rose, Emily (dc.).

 

In her early years Annie was a fixture working at Ted’s and Ivan’s Snack Bar.  She loved to bake and knit items for all her family members.  She spent many hours caring for Gordon’s standardbred race horse Valiant Nathen which she nicknamed “Scotty”. She became a real fan of the Toronto Blue Jays.

 

Our family would like to thank Dr. Redhead for his service and all staff members on the 2nd floor, Waters Edge for making our mother as comfortable as possible. 

In keeping with her wishes her body has been cremated.
