A Tribute to Anne Dozell

In honour of her birthday on June 24th, we take time today to remember former Toronto Vegetarian Association board member Anne Dozell, who sadly passed away at Markham Stouffville Hospital on June 7, 2012 at the age of 71. In addition to serving on the TVA board, Anne co-founded the DurhamVeg Group, co-authored TVA’s popular “Tastes of Toronto” cookbook and wrote for several other TVA publications, including frequent articles in Lifelines. Anne worked tirelessly to serve the GTA’s vegetarian community as one of TVA’s chief social event organizers during the 1980s and early 1990s. She is most remembered for her “Getting Started” tutorials, her “Ask Letty” advice column in Lifelines [“Letty” being short for “Lettuce”], her outreach visits and her supermarket scrutiny. Her friends at the Toronto Vegetarian Association fondly recall her energy and her infectious laugh. She was always seeking ways to make veganism more attractive to the common omnivore. While the TVA misses Anne greatly, her memory and activism live on through the growing list of social groups which exist today, and we thank her for planting that seed at the Toronto Vegetarian Association.
