Obituary of Anne Marilyn Hurlbut



(nee Moffat)

September 14, 1928

September 25, 2020


With deep sorrow we announce that Anne Hurlbut passed away peacefully at her home in Toronto, just 11 days after her 92nd birthday.


Anne was the eldest daughter of Walter Turnbull Moffat and Anne Monica McGowan of Hamilton ON., and the beloved wife of 57 years to Robert St. Clair Hurlbut (deceased 2011). Survived by her devoted sons, Robert Andrew Hurlbut (Susan Raphael) and David Lawrence Hurlbut; her sister Sheila (Mrs. Donald Sheffel) of Del Ray Beach, Florida and sister-in-law, Mrs. Joan Moffat (James Moffat, deceased) of Burlington and many nieces and nephews. Through a long period of convalescence Anne enjoyed the support and affection of many friends.


Anne spent many active years as a volunteer for CNIB (Ontario division). One of her greatest passions was gardening and she was a long time member of the Garden Club of Toronto as well as serving on the Grounds Committee of the Highgate Condo Community, 1 Concorde Place in Toronto. She also served on the board of Ontario Place in the late 70’s. Anne was an avid bridge player and was part of a dedicated Bridge Club for over 50 years. Other memberships included The Granite Club and Rosedale Golf Club.


Anne and Bob had a deep passion for the north, particularly Muskoka, Georgian Bay and Algonquin Park. Many summers were enjoyed with family and friends at Lost Key Island and when the weather changed, fall, winter and spring were spent mostly at their home in Bracebridge. Anne was a remarkable lady whose legacy will live on through her family, friends, and passions. She will be truly missed by all those who have known and loved her.


In keeping with her wishes, there will be no memorial service. Interment will be in St. John the Baptist Church Cemetery, Richmond Hill.

A Life Well Lived

A life well lived is a precious gift,

Of hope and strength and grace,

from someone who has made our world

a brighter, better place.

It’s filled with moments sweet and sad,

With smiles and sometimes tears,

With friendships formed and good times shared

and laughter through the years.

A life well lived is a legacy,

Of joy and pride and pleasure,

A living, lasting memory

our grateful hearts will treasure.
