Obituary For Ann Louise Whittle

On Tuesday September 1st, 2020 at 11:00 PM Ann Louise Whittle passed away peacefully after a quick battle with cancer at the age of 58. She was predeceased by her mother Rose Louise (Giffen) and father Albert Victor Alchorn.

Ann worked at Northwood Inc Nursing Home for 30 years as a Dietary Aid. She had a passion and love for helping the elderly and other people. She always made sure that everyone was taken care of and had smiles on their face. At home she enjoyed Hockey, Wrestling, Figure Skating, yelling at the cat (Dexter), and playing cards. She was always an easy target for laughs and tormenting, which she loved even when she said no. Heaven forbid if anyone talked during skating or turned off any Michael Bolton songs, the world would end. She grew into becoming a great mother and an even better Grandmother.

Ann will be forever remembered by her husband, soul mate, and love of her life Don, and their children, Ryan Matthew (Vicky) and Jessica Louise Dahr (Stanley), by her precious grandchildren, Lily and Abigail, as well as her brother and sister Gordon “Gordie” Alchorn (Gillian), and Rose “Rosebud” Feetham (Bryan), Ann will also be forever remembered by her numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and dear friends. She is also predeceased by other family and friends such as Heather Vallis and Denise Johnson.

No service will be had, Ann will be cremated and put in the care of her husband until it's time to join her again. We thank everyone that helped Ann and Don from Homecare (Bay Shore), all the numerous nurses and doctors at the QE2, and especially our Social Worker Mary from 8.2 who followed Ann to her final unit at 8.4. Without her, Don would not have had the chance to spend the last moments with Ann.

If you are looking to do anything to help our family; please talk about this and how the nursing staff at the QE2 Infirmary are amazing people who are spread too thin and not paid enough. Also talk about how the doctors have to be rotated every week and no doctor actually gets to develop a rapport or true connection and can miss things, or not read the full chart.

Please reach out to your loved ones and check in to make sure they are getting checked medically and staying safe during these tough times. Please let the story of Ann Whittle help other people find Cancer earlier to prevent this terrible loss for anyone else.

Please accept our hearfelt condolences on the passing of Ann. She was a fun loving person who loved life and people which always showed when we were together. Ann was a great friend and neighbor and we shared lots of memories together with majorettes, our trips, hanging out with family and friends and we certainly had lots of fun and laughter. She was very kindhearted and a great friend who will sadly be missed by many who knew her. I do regret not staying in touch in our adult years. To Don, Rose(Brian), Gordie (Gillian) and family - may the sorrow you feel in your hearts lighten by the love that surrounds you all during this difficult time. Know that Ann is at peace and not suffering anymore. God's love and many prayers are all around you - now and for as long as it takes. Love Sharon and Ron MacDonald

So sorry to hear that Ann passed away . We were very close in Brookside Jr High Jiving and doing "the bump" at many dances . I have a few old pictures of throwing snowballs with Ann and one where she won the Miss Majorette pageant. We had a lot of fun doing the concerts. I will always think back to those memories. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
