Obituary for Anne Louise McDougall (Finch)

Anne Louise  McDougall (Finch)
Passed away comfortably at home in Ottawa on May 6, 2019, aged 88, after battling with the long-term effects of a stroke. Anne is survived by her three children: Drew, Toronto, Catherine (Rick Bond), Montreal, and Elizabeth, Victoria. She was her happiest when surrounded by her nine grandchildren, Alison, Taylor, Jaime, Pippa, Caroline, Kelly, William, Jackie, and Matthew especially when they visited her cherished country home at Valdurn in the Quebec Laurentians. They very much miss their “Grandmoo”. A private but strong-willed woman and native Hamiltonian, Anne married her love, Edward Barry (d. 1999), and embarked on their life’s journey together A whirlwind adventure across two countries over five decades ensued, punctuated by service to those with special needs: Famous People Players, Wheelchair Tennis, and Guide Dogs for the Blind. Later in life she rekindled a long time friendship with Paul Seeley (d. 2015), Wellesley, MA. Her “palpable sense of service”, “high standards”, hospitality, dry sense of humour, and superb organizational skills were clearly evidenced in the many campaigns she ran for P.C. candidates and the 20 year-long University of Ottawa scholarship program she founded for Masters of law students for which she received the Knight's Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland. Anne’s family would like to thank Dr. Engelhard and Dr Heather Galbraith for their diligent care and rare devotion, the neurological unit of the Ottawa Hospital, and, most importantly the 2nd floor caregiving staff at the Rockcliffe Retirement Home for their unstinting work and personal touch. Finally, the arc of Anne’s arduous recent journey was uplifted and extended through the compassionate care and inimitable friendship of Irene Chilakos. She has been a true blessing.
