Joan will be remembered for the stories she told and wrote that gave expression to her indomitable spirit, sense of humor and love for life and family. Her stories gained recognition when they were aired on CBC Radio and received Honorable Mention in the National Leacock Humorous Short Story Competition. For all that knew Joan, her spirit lives on in her many wonderful stories.
The family would like to thank all the staff at Sunnyside Senior Services who provided loving care and support throughout her last year of life.
Cremation has taken place and a private memorial will be held for family and friends. Messages and condolences may be left for the family at www.tricitycremations.com.
