MacDOUGALL, Anne Elizabeth (née Irvin)

November 18, 1927 - August 8, 2022

Anne passed away peacefully, surrounded by her five children, on Monday, August 8, 2022, at 94 years. Anne’s family meant the world to her, and she loved them all dearly. Anne is predeceased by her husband Peter MacDougall (2010), daughter Connie (2002), and son-in-law Mark Kreller (2013). She was born in Egremont Township to Rose and Arthur Irvin on November 18, 1927. Anne and Peter began married life in Kitchener, where they raised their six children on Fairmount Road along with dogs, cats, ducks, chickens and the occasional pony. Anne and Peter eventually moved back to the area of their birthplace, where they spent over 25 years of retirement together in Holstein with many wonderful family gatherings each year. Anne loved cooking and baking and having all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren together. She lives on in her children: Barb (Jim) Pinder, Audrey (Mark) Coffey, Scott (Caroline) MacDougall, Christine Michaud and Beth (Volker) Lamprecht. Her loving grandchildren and their families: Jennifer Pinder, Luke (Kate) Pinder, Kevin Coffey (Ange Gaetano), Sam Coffey (Regan MacDonald), Catherine MacDougall, Elizabeth MacDougall, Stuart (Cassandra) Michaud, Emily Lamprecht, Amy Lamprecht (Kevin Mara), Katie Lamprecht (Colin Conroy); and great-grandchildren: Olivia and James Pinder, Marcus Michaud and Roman, and Celia Mara-Lamprecht. A dear friend and ‘Mom’ to Anita Ceh. Dear sister to Audrey Dowling, John (Wilma) Irvin and sister-in-law to Jim (Ann) MacDougall, and Ruth Ann MacDougall. Anne is also survived by many nieces and nephews and their families. Predeceased by siblings: Richard Irvin, Charlie Irvin, and Ethel McQueen. We are so blessed to have had the love, guidance and friendship of an amazing woman, mother and grandmother. A private family service and celebration of Anne’s life was held on Monday, August 15, 2022 with interment in Holstein Cemetery. Memorial donations to National Service Dogs would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences may be made at
