ADAMS: Ann Diana May (née Spall) of Ottawa, Ontario


Ann Adams    (née Spall)

March 31, 1935 – February 12, 2019


Ann left us on February 12, 2019 at the Ottawa General Hospital following major surgery. Born in Wrentham, Suffolk, England, she was predeceased by her parents May Mumford and Charles V. Spall, and stepmother, Dorothy.

Ann leaves her loving husband of 55 years, Clifford, her children Karen (Serge Lafrenière), Eric (Razieh Pourhasan), and Carl; her grandchildren Jeremy and Sarah Lafrenière, and Daniel and Sophie Adams.

She also leaves her beloved sister, Mary Elizabeth (Betty) Wall, and nephews Charles, Michael and David. Cousins and her many, many close friends in England, Ireland and Canada will surely miss her.

Ann trained as a Diagnostic Radiographer at Kings’ College Hospital in London, England, and worked in several hospitals in London, Montreal, and Ottawa. She retired from the Civic Hospital in 1996. In retirement, her major interests were her Tai Chi group and the British Isles Family History Society [Genealogy] where she made many good friends.

Family and friends may pay their respects at Whelan Funeral Home, 515 Cooper Street (between Bay & Lyon) Ottawa, on Sunday, February 17, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 PM.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church, 1060 Baseline Road, Ottawa, at 11 AM on Monday, February 18, 2019. A reception will follow in the parish hall.
