Obituary for Ann Teresa Lyng (Dorgan)

Lyng, Ann Teresa (Dorgan)

It is with profound sadness and gratefulness for a well lived life that the family of Ann (Anita) Lyng announces her peaceful passing on Wednesday April 21, 2021 at Wentworth Lodge, Dundas. Anita was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1934. She was the oldest child of twelve children born to Sarah (Carey) and James Dorgan. She married Joseph Lyng in 1956. In a spirit of adventure, they immigrated to Canada in 1957 where they would lovingly raise four children. Robert (Phyllis Duxbury), Denise (Frank) Rozman, Joe (Anne), and Brenda (Ken) Bateman, as well as the eight grand children, Samantha, Connor (Margot), Patrick (Jessica) Lyng; Jessica, Kathleen and Matthew Rozman; and Jacqueline and James Bateman. All are now left to mourn and forever cherish the memory of an incredible mother and GranAnn. Anita will also be fondly remembered by her surviving Dorgan brothers and sisters Pat (Bernie), Mitchell (Marie), Sarah Phillips, Imelda Segriff, Helen (Marcel) Lehouillier, Jessie (Frank) Lusina, Brian (Teresa) Dorgan as well as many nieces and nephews here and in Ireland. Anita is also survived by her brother in law Tommy (Esther) Lyng in Ireland and in Canada, by her sister in law Mary Dorgan. Anita was predeceased by her loving husband Joseph Lyng, her parents James and Sarah, Dorgan, brothers James, John and Eamonn Dorgan, sister Marie, brothers in law Edward (Antoinette) Lyng, Jimmy Lyng, sisters in law Joan (John) Keogh and Nancy (Alfie) Hayes, nieces Sarah Lyng, Anita Keogh and nephews Eamonn Keogh and Brian Dorgan. Anita delighted in family gatherings, oversea visitors, retirement travelling with Joe, bike rides along the canal, walking Jack - the biggest black dog in Welland, trips to California to see Sean and Bernie and spending time at the family cottage on Whitestone Lake along with the Guiney, Byrne, Russell and Baldwin families. Mom was an accomplished seamstress and used her talents and strong work ethic managing the Upholstery Department at NTEC for many years. Later she worked as a Personal Care Worker at Bethesda. Anita, along with Katherine Barilla and Angie Talosi, was a long time Girl Guide leader. She and Joe were devoted to the St. Kevin’s Parish community – Anita was a life-long CWL member. Anita had a tremendous zest for life and a genuine belief in the goodness of people. She found happiness in living a simple life that was devoted to her husband Joe, family, faith and her community. The family would like to thank Dr. Lenore Zou and the staff of Wentworth Lodge, Dundas, especially nurses Precious, Sara, Jeremi, and Dolly who took such good care of Anita in her final months. A special thank you to Heather who nurtured Anita’s late in life appreciation for the music of John Denver.
There will be no visitation due to covid restrictions. The Catholic funeral services will be private and will be held at the H.L. Cudney Funeral Home on Monday April 26th. The service will be livestreamed. Visit Cudney Facebook page for further instructions.
