Our dear Mother passed away peacefully on December 19, 2021 at Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, Ontario at the age of 84.
Predeceased by her parents Al and Ella Lissaman, Ann is survived by her husband of 62 years, Ab Drake, sons Tom (Kelly), Paul, Brian (Barb), daughter Karen Andress (Shawn), precious grandchildren and great-grandsons.
We would like to extend a huge, heartfelt thank you to Familia Cardona-Parra and Familia Martelo-Henao for their kindness and unwavering support. They and their generosity will never be forgotten.
Anyone that knew Ann would know that her passion in life was to serve others. For many years, Ann took it upon herself to collect essential household items and clothing for various missions and organizations. Her most passionate project was assisting new comers to Canada through Matthew House (Toronto), Welcome House (Cambridge) and Micah House (Hamilton) She was always doing good for others and never asked for anything in return, except perhaps, permission to take your photo.
Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Ann's life will take place at a later date. If you'd like to make a donation in her memory, may we suggest www.micahhouse.ca
