I met Joan while working at the Jubilee Hospital. I was blessed to have her as my friend.
Joan was a beautiful Elizabeth Taylor look-alike and was a truly beautiful soul as well. She was the perfect person to care for our elderly population, and then she moved over to comfort patients on their last journey at the Hospice. She would open herself to help anyone in any way she could. You couldn't help but love her.
We had a lot of laughs as she had a mischievous demeanour. Joan's life wasn't always easy but she would put a positive spin on her troubles.
If we went on a picnic I would bring a sandwich and a ginger ale,,,,,Joan would show up with a basket from Cheryl's gourmet foods. Wine; chocolate dipped strawberries and all sorts of goodies. She loved the sun and was a classy lady. It was always a pleasure to see her smiling face as she pulled up in her little VW beetle.
We are grieving the huge hole she left in this world. I will miss her and never forget her. So sorry to lose our friend.

Also, we are 100% sure Joan turned 70 on June 6th, not sure how this could be wrong in the obituary but maybe her records were destroyed in the fire? All the ladies celebrated her 70th birthday. She was a lovely, kind lady.

Hello, my mother Mary Murray lived next door to Joan (and Bill). She is deeply upset with Joan’s passing and would luv to contact Bill. We have no way to do that because her apartment can not be accessed since the fire and she has no numbers to reach anyone. Please, if you read this and you know how to contact Joan’s family and Bill please contact me. We are all very sorry to hear about Joan’s passing, she was a special friend and such a kind loving person. She is with the cats in heaven.
