Anna STUART

Anna Dorothy Stuart (nee Mallory), born on May 4, 1922, bid farewell to the world on September 2, 2023, in Windsor, Ontario. After a remarkable and fulfilling journey through life, Anna peacefully passed away. She is preceded in death by her husband, W. Wallace Stuart, whom she shared 58 blissful years with until his passing in 2004. Anna also mourned the loss of her daughter, Susan M. Rossmann, in 2012, her parents Harold and Eve Mallory, her brother Donnie Mallory, and her sister Merilyn Johnston.

Left to cherish her memory are her granddaughter, Dr. Jennifer Rossmann, and her son-in-law Michael Rossmann, accompanied by his wife Carol. Additionally, Anna is survived by her niece, Pamela Johnston Hornby, her nephews Gwynne, John (Anne), and Geoffrey Johnston, as well as Ian (Margaret), John (Karyn), and Heather (Peter) Bryce. Furthermore, she will always be lovingly remembered by her great nieces, nephews, and her extended family in Austria.

Anna, born in Brockville, Ontario, was proud of her lineage as a descendant of United Empire Loyalist Nathaniel Mallory, who settled in the area now known as Mallorytown around 1790. She hailed from a family of visionaries, as her grandfather Amasa Mallory founded Canada’s first glass factory in 1839. Throughout her life, Anna called 223 King St. E. in Brockville her home, overlooking the picturesque St. Lawrence River, until she married Wallace Stuart and relocated to Windsor, Ontario.

Anna devoted several years of her career to serving as a stenographer for the Dominion Department of Agriculture in Brockville. A committed Christian, she found solace and community as a long-standing member of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Windsor. With a passion for her loved ones, birdwatching, swimming, and exploring foreign lands, Anna lived a life driven by enthusiasm and purpose. She actively contributed to her community by serving on various boards of directors and played a pivotal role in establishing a breakfast program for students in the Windsor School District.

She will forever hold a special place in the hearts of her dear friends, including Lanny Joffe, Stephen Kurtz, and Jean Brace. Anna cherished her weekly phone calls, eagerly catching up with family and friends. The heartfelt gratitude of Anna’s family extends to her dedicated caregivers over the years: Gemma (almost 18 years), Ann Marie, Liz, Bertha, Joy, Community Nurse Sherry, the compassionate team at Amica Riverside, Chaplain Rosemary, and Dr. Burgess, who provided unwavering support during Anna’s final journey.

A Funeral Service celebrating Anna’s life will be held at the Anderson Funeral Home & Cremation Centre in Windsor on Friday, September 8, 2023, at 1 p.m. Following the service, a visitation with a light reception will be held before proceeding to Victoria Memorial Gardens for the Committal Service. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation and/or Brockville Operation Harvest Sharing would be greatly appreciated. Loving memories and expressions of sympathy can be shared at AndersonFuneralHomewindsor.com for the Stuart family.
