Obituary for Ann Dick Hill (Aitken)

Ann Dick  Hill (Aitken)
April 14, 1935 - January 15, 2021
Peacefully at home on January 15 with Mark, her husband of 58 years, at her side. She was predeceased by daughter Sarah and by her sister Margaret. She leaves her son Mark William (Carol), sister Nancy (Hull), and grandsons Nathan and Jacob.

Ann was born in Irvine, Scotland to William Aitken and Margaret (Smith). She came to Canada in 1960 and moved to Ottawa in 1974 to the home she lived in to the end. She developed an interest in things political and served in the PMO during the short-lived 31st parliament. The balance of her career
was devoted to work in the public relations area until her retirement in the early 90's due to heart issues.

Ann’s great passions in life were gardening, the water and animals of all kinds. Her love of gardening led to managing the landscaping portfolio for
her condominium corporation, all 22 acres of it. Her stamp is on every tree, shrub and flower bed. For 30 years she sailed the waters of the Thousand
Islands on Midnight Blue and contributed to the early development of Trident Yacht Club. Her interest in and love for birds and anything with four legs was
well known and appreciated among her friends and neighbours.

A celebration of Ann’s life will be held at some point in the future when it is safe to do so.
