ELIZABETH ANN LAIDLAW (née Elliott) 1929 - 2021 Ann died peacefully on Thursday, July 8, 2021 in the Palliative Care Unit at Michael Garron Hospital in her 92nd year. Ann was the beloved wife of the late Jack (June 6, 2015), mother of the late Meg (September 4, 2014) and daughter Kate. She leaves her sister-in-law, Jane Dale and husband, William Dale, and their three sons, Michael (Julia), John (Rose) and Tom (Maria); her two nephews David (Teresa) and Mark from her late sister Shirley and husband (Tom). Ann loved people, good conversations, going to parties, deep belly laughs and was practical - a direct woman who always called 'a spade a spade!' She was kind, warm, excellent at supporting people and found her calling in social services. Ann graduated with a Master's degree in Social Work from Queen's University. She worked at the Children's Aid Society of Toronto, then Community Care East York and finally Sprint Senior Care. While Ann was at Community Care East York she designed and implemented a new Respite Care program providing services for persons with Alzheimer's Disease and their families. She continued to supervise and develop this program until her retirement in 2001. The Celebration of Life will be held at Rosedale Presbyterian Church, 129 Mount Pleasant Road, Toronto, on Tuesday, August 3 at 2 p.m. Memorial donations may be made to the Children's Aid Foundation of Canada at or by calling 416-923-0924.

Bob and I remember Ann from when we bought their house on Hudson Dr. Our daughters settled right in to their daughters' old rooms, we added another daughter, and that house served us well for 26 years. Ann was direct, and compassionate. We ran into each other occasionally over the years, and are delighted that she was able to influence important aspects of the world for many years. Our thoughts are with Kate and family.

We are very sad to learn of the passing of Ann Laidlaw. We knew Ann and Jack for many years at Rosedale Presbyterian Church. Ann was always fun to be with. She was very welcoming and amusing and always had such a positive attitude.
Our heartfelt condolences to Kate and family.
