Smith, Flora Annie:
Passed away on Saturday, October 29, 2022 at Sunnyside Home at the age of 100.
Beloved wife of the late Donald Byron Smith (2012).
Loving mother of Shari (Larry) Woods, the late Doug Smith (2013) and Claude (Sue) Smith.
Cherished grandma of Colin Woods, Sarah Woods (Rob Weber), Amy Woods (Chris Hobson), Kate Woods, David Smith (Adam Nisula), Leanne Nullmeyer and Ben (Lisa) Woods.
Great-grandma of Maya Weber, Mason Weber, Jacob Woods, Natalie Woods, Kyla Nullmeyer, Lily Nullmeyer, Camden Hobson, Lucas Hobson and Georgia Woods.
Dear sister of Maryon (the late Arthur) Langdon and Marjory (the late John) Downey.
Predeceased by siblings Robert (Lorna) Whitton, Jean Whitton, Pauline (William) Rigney and Donald (Margaret) Whitton.
Known to family and friends as Annie, she was a devoted wife and mother – a true multitasker. In her chosen career as a teacher, she found time to take specialist courses and earn her Bachelor of Arts degree as a part time student.
In her spare time, Annie was an active and well-respected member of the sorority Beta Sigma Phi. She also loved cards and looked forward to playing on the eight-lady Bridge league at the church. Annie was a wonderful sewer, knitter, and even learned the art of smocking. On many Sundays, she gathered the family together for delicious homemade meals. Her pies were always a crowd pleaser!
Annie loved a little cross border retail therapy and introduced many of us to the excitement of finding great deals. Until very recently, she continued to enjoy an occasional trip to the mall or a visit to the Sunnyside gift shop. She was fastidious about her appearance--her outfits, her hair and her lovely, manicured nails. Annie was beautiful inside and out.
In retirement, Annie continued to love the company of family and friends. In her later years, she made many connections at Westhill Retirement Residence and again at Sunnyside Senior Home. She loved working with Dreampower Costumes and was a valued member of the team for many years. Annie loved spending time with her grandchildren and their children who always knew they were deeply loved. Annie’s legacy of love and commitment to family lives on and for that we are grateful!
As per Annie's wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no service held. Arrangements entrusted to the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 519-749-8467.
As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Sunnyside Foundation would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).
