Joanne was one of my many Aunts. Her husband Andy was the youngest brother of my Mother (Sarah/Cissy Flitton, nee Ramsay). I have many many happy memories of Joanne, Andy and Sandy, especially them coming to our home on Christmas Eve each year. Adults would be upstairs, and “cousins by the dozens” would be in our basement. Every Boxing Day, our household would visit the Aunts and Uncles’homes; it was a long day, there being 8 homes to pop in at. It was bittersweet to see photos of their little dog “Buttons”, who my sister and I always looked forward to seeing; we thought he was the cutest pup ever. Rest In Peace, Joanne, and thanks for all the trims. Sheila Cussons (nee Flitton)

First of all I would like to send my sincere sympathy to the family. Joanne was my teacher at Marvel in around 1970. I have often thought of her over the years. She was my favourite. Not only was she a great teacher but a wonderful fun person! I will always think of her and smile. Glad to here she lived a long life. Hoping your memories will get you all through this difficult time.

Joanne was a dear lady that meant a lot to me. I always had fun being around her and having fun driving each other crazy. R.I.P to a dear friend you will be truly missed.

Sad to hear this news. I can't think of a summer in my youth my sister and I didn't visit "Aunt" Jo and "Uncle" Andy at the Ramsay cottage. It was always a treat to visit, always a ball game on, their dogs and Sandi's running around like they owned the place...always made us feel welcome. Ramsay's are long time family friends and are all missed dearly. Thank you for the great memories and haircuts in the kitchen "Aunt" Jo. - Laura and Andrew Redman

I will miss Joanne she was like my second mother. Over the 60 years I knew her, she and Andy always treated me like their second daughter. I started out babysitting Sandy when I was 16. From those early days we travelled like we were a family of 4. I have many fond memories of all the times we spent together, the many years of Boxing Day supper’s, Thanksgivings dinners and all the summer weekends at the cottage. The Ramsay’s always treated our Howe family like we were part of their family.
I am sad, and will miss Joanne. However, I’m at peace knowing Joanne is no longer suffering . Joanne can finally be with Andy and Sandy and she can now Rest In Peace at the cottage.
I will miss Joanne; my second mom like I miss my mom.
Love Joanna Howe

Very saddened by the news. It was like losing my mom all over again.
Our over 50 year friendship with her and the family will always be cherished and the memories from the cottage at Ipperwash will never fade.
Goodbye Joeanne you have had a long ordeal but you always had a smile for us even during our last few visits.
This is sad but it is over for you. RIP
