In Celebration of

Ann Lyle Otto (nee Greenwood)

July 17, 1932 -  December 28, 2021

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Ann on December 28, 2021, at Trillium Mississauga Hospital. In her final days she rested peacefully, surrounded by the love of her immediate family.

Ann always saw the good and positive in those around her. Her generosity and smile will be greatly missed.

Ann faced her health issues with great courage and dignity.

She was the beloved wife and best friend of Gunter for 65 years.

Loving Mother to Doug (Lisa) and Ken (Julie), she will always be remembered for her gentle guidance, optimism, and constant interest in their family’s adventures.

Ann will be missed by her loving grandchildren Alexander, Christine,
Jack and Geoffrey of whom she was very proud.

Ann was very loving and generous to her sisters, Molly Greenwood and Jane Ward, throughout her life. Her thoughtfulness and caring will always be remembered by both sisters.

Ann's nieces and nephew will always remember her fondly.

A private burial service was held at Spring Creek Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made to the Trillium Health Partners Foundation or the charity of your choice.

Dear Gunter, Ken and the Otto family. I think fondly of the times I met Ann at a number of Christmas Cara Operations Family events. CARA was a truly amazing all-Canadian foodservice & hospitality chain when Foodcorp and CARA merged. So much has changed but never the wonderful memories which remain grounded within us. RIP Anne. Sincerely, Esther & Allan Lee
