MCGUIRE, Ann Marie
October 7, 1950 – December 10, 2019
“But O for the touch of a vanished hand, / And the sound of a voice that is still!” Early on a December morning in the comfort of her Toronto home, Ann passed away in peace. After growing up on family farms in Schomberg, Barrie, and Washago, she went on to study at the University of Toronto, Carleton University, and Queen’s University. Ann became a high school English teacher, a job she loved; she taught in Peterborough at PCVS, and in Toronto at Madonna Catholic Secondary School and Loretto Abbey (where she became English Department Head). She loved travelling, and for a time lived and worked in London, England, where she met her dear husband and love of her life, Gerard. Ann was diagnosed with COPD and emphysema in the late 1990s, and she received a double lung transplant in 2007. Since then, Ann has been an exemplary member of the Toronto Lung Transplant Club, an inspiring advocate for organ transplant recipients, and a tireless promoter of organ donation awareness. Predeceased by her parents Bert and Vera and siblings John and Mary Rose, Ann is survived by her loving husband Gerard and her two children Rebecca (Colin) and Joel. She will be dearly missed by her brothers Hugh, Peter, Gerry, Tom, Bill, Robert, and Dan; her beloved in-laws; her large extended family; and her many friends. A wake will be held on Friday, December 13 between 5:00-9:00 PM at Rod Abrams Funeral Home in Tottenham, and a mass will take place on Saturday, December 14 at 10:00 AM at St. Patrick’s in Schomberg. If desired, donations in her honour may be made to the Toronto Lung Transplant Club.
