It is with great sadness that we share that Wendy Morrison (neé Trow) passed away peacefully at her home with family by her side on Tuesday, June 22, 2021, at the age of 77.
Born in Toronto, Wendy was the only child of Ruth and Allan Trow. She met her husband, Geoffrey Morrison, while living on Toronto Island in 1964 and they raised their two children, Amy and Adam, in Toronto. She dedicated over 20 years to supporting kids at both Ledbury Park and Drewry secondary school, and then moved to Meaford in 1996 where she lived until her final day.
Some of her great loves were sewing, gardening, garage sales, and knitting – many babies are wearing one of her famous ‘Nana Knits’ hats from the Tara craft show.
She spent decades trying to replicate a shortbread recipe that was never quite right (probably needed more butter) and referred to the 427 as the ‘highway of hell’.
Wendy loved the smell of gardenias, eating dilly bars, watching baseball, and had a particular fondness for turkey vultures.
The weather was never too hot for her, she was notoriously terrible at making decisions, and she always carried dog treats in her purse. She was kind, positive, encouraging, and her family’s biggest cheerleader.
She was her grandsons’ beloved Nana who loved George Michael, Queen, and any underdog on The Voice. She always looked on the bright side and prepared for the worst so she’d be pleasantly surprised – it rarely failed her.
She was a lover of life, a collector of wool, and there are no words to describe how much she will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
Wendy is survived by her husband, Geoffrey ‘Jeff’ Morrison, and her children Amy Morrison (Andrew Boisvenue) and Adam Morrison, and her grandsons, Fletcher and Emmett Boisvenue.
Her family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible VONs who came to the house every single day. Their care and compassion allowed her to pass away on her own terms after a valiant battle with cancer.
