LEESON, MARGARET ANNE November 3, 1945 - September 20, 2020 Anne's family is very sad to report that she passed away, of natural causes, at her home in Hamilton, ON. Mum to John Andrew Hart (Alison) of St. Andrew's, Scotland, and David Alexander Hart of Hamilton, ON; Granny to Stefanie, Amy and Calum Hart of St. Andrew's, and Olivia Walde-Hart of Windsor, ON. She is also survived by her brother, John Leeson (Oksana Kuryliw) of Toronto; and her many cousins in the Leeson and Young families. She was the daughter of the late Dr. Jack and Eleanor Leeson. Anne was born and grew up in Toronto (Willowdale), and attended Earl Haig Collegiate, Alma College, and Bishop's University. She lived for many years in London, Ontario (and a few in Victoria, BC). She had a 35-year career at the Royal Bank. After living with, and caring for her elderly parents in Toronto for several years, she moved to Hamilton in 2004. Anne was a loving and dedicated mother to her sons, and devoted to her four grandchildren (and was honourary Granny to Charlotte). Cremation has taken place. Because of COVID, a service will be postponed until spring. For condolences or information, email anne@jookjoint.ca. If desired, a donation to her favourite charity, the ALS Society of Canada, would be welcome.

Anne was a wonderful warm-hearted person. As children we played together often when our mothers visited. She was fun loving and adventurous. We lost touch when she went away to school and then lived in London, Ontario . We reconnected when she moved to the house on Winlock Park. And we have been in touch since then. She valued strongly the history of her family and enjoyed keeping the connections and traditions. We talked often of that. Her ill-health recently made visiting more difficult but we kept in contact by regular phon calls. I will miss her a great deal

Anne was a wonderful warm-hearted and loving person. I knew her best as a child when our family visited hers. She was fun loving and full of energy and laughter. After high school we lost touch for a number of years but after she move to take care of her parents we caught up and kept in touch. She valued strongly the history of her family and enjoyed keeping the connections and traditions. We talked often of that. Her ill-health recently made visiting more difficult but her friendship was greatly valued. I will miss her a great deal.

My Deepest condolences to John & family. I grew up right across the street from you & your family on Winlock Park in Willowdale. Anne & I were friends & shared a lot of good times together. As we both grew up & moved away we lost track of each other especially once Anne moved to London. I always remember her smiling face & John I remember you too, although you were very young at the time.

I am very sorry for your loss, you are in our thoughts & prayers.
