BAIRD, Ann Kelso (née GELLATLY)

It is with great sadness we, her two sons, announce the passing of our loving mother.

Beloved wife of Major William Chisholm and loving mother to John Cameron of New York and Roger David of Denman Island and grandmother of Renardo Narita, Naima Maya and Charlotte Logan SYTNYK, great-grandmother of Sarah Eileen SYTNYK and Shelby Katherine SYTNYK and devoted mother-in-law of Sharon-Amber and Miho Narita. Born in Alloa on April 25, 1915, the eldest child of Provost John GELLATLY and Anne GELLATLY, she graduated Dollar Academy and pursued a nursing career in Scotland. With the advent of World War 2 she moved to London where she continued nursing, studied public health at London University, and when the War resulted in a demand for available physicians, she contributed to the war effort by delivering babies as a midwife. Ann was married on August 29, 1943 in Middlesex, England and later, in anticipation of D-day, moved with her husband and his regiment to Bournemouth where they had their first child. Shortly after D-day she moved to London where she resided with her son until several months after V-E day when they made the crossing by ship to Halifax (presaging the 50,000 war brides and 22,000 children that were to arrive through Pier 21) where they stayed with William's relatives Don and Marjorie BARTEAUX while awaiting William's return to Canada. Ann was active in the arts and served over 30 years as a volunteer with the Winnipeg Art Gallery and was an active participant in the Gallery's study group. Several times she won the group's annual prize for making a food dish that closely approximated a known work of art. With her husband she enjoyed visiting her sons in Manhattan where they celebrated many New Years together at the Metropolitan Club. Ann was a member of the Lake Chapala Society in Ajijic and with her husband, belonged to the Winnipeg Winter Club and Niakwa Country Club.
