She was an honorary member of the Ladies Auxiliary #10 and Royal Purple in Strathmore.


Joan will be sadly missed by all at Sagewood Care, caregivers, old and new friends and all those who crossed her path. Her last remaining years on Dawson Lake floor kept her here with us. The loving care she received was nothing but outstanding and our family is deeply thankful to all of you that touched her life and made Dawson her home.


We are all feeling the comfort of knowing she is again with her family and friends.

Joan will be cremated as per her wish, and due to Covid restrictions, no service will be held at this time.
