It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother Joan at the age of 78. Joan enjoyed her early retirement from the Limestone District School Board as a Custodian. Her favorite time of year was summer, where she had many fun times at the trailer with friends. She also enjoyed her time at home sitting on the back deck admiring her flowers, listening to the trickle of water in the pond, watching the birds, cooking for always seemed like "an army" but mostly spending time with her children.
Joan will be greatly missed by her daughters, Karen (Mark), Kelly (Johnny), son Rusty, grandmother to Julie (Jay), Cory (Emily) and great-grandmother to Hannah. Second mom to family friend Boo. Special Aunt to several nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by her late husband Arnold, companion Harry Kemp, mother Bertha, sisters Mildred, Donna, Jean and brother Donald. She will be deeply missed by her fur baby Zander and Rusty's fur baby Gibson.
The family would like to express our sincere gratitude to Meredith (nurse) from the Sydenham Medical Clinic for her outstanding care and support.
As per Joan's wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. For those wishing, donations may be made to the Sydenham Legion Branch #496.
