12 janvier 194411 août 2020

On August 11, 2020 our wife, mom, gramma and friend passed away peacefully at 76 years of age, with her family by her side.

Left to cherish her memory are her loving husband J. Brian Trump; children Doug Trump (Andrea), Kerry Lee and Jackie Trump; grandchildren Hudson, Justyna, Myles, Kylie, Nils, Soren and Anders; and brothers Tony Chuback (Donna) and Mervin Chuback (Nancy). Joan was predeceased by her brother William Chuback (Alice).

Joan was born on January 12, 1944 in Foam Lake, Saskatchewan and grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She worked for the Winnipeg School Division as an elementary school teacher for over 30 years. In retirement, Joan enjoyed yoga, playing golf and travelling to Texas for the winter months. Joan touched many hearts and was loved and respected by her family, friends, coworkers and students and she was an amazing wife, mother and gramma.

Throughout her battle with ALS, she taught us love, courage, perseverance, and acceptance. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages a donation to the ALS Society. We have been extremely grateful for the ALS Society and the ALS Clinic at Deer Lodge Hospital for all their love and support.

Due to COVID 19, only immediate family will attend a graveside service and a Celebration of Life will happen at a later date when all family and friends can safely attend.

Auntie Joan,
When I was in my teens, I will always remember My first ring, you gave to me with my birthstone. I cherished that ring.
We went golfing and you taught me how to stand while holding the club. You gave me some items that grandma wanted me to have, and this meant a lot to me especially a letter I wrote to grandma when I was 6yrs old. I still remember the way you handed the letter back to me and your facial expression, you made me feel better at a really sad time for both of us.
I can hear you and dad (Willie) laughing around the table at lunch time at grandmas house, you two had a that special bond.
Now you are with grandma, grandpa and Willie having a good catch up. You were a great GodMother, I just wish I had more time growing up to spend with you. It meant a lot to me that you set up the Chuback family get together at the park.
It was wonderful sitting and speaking with you, reminiscing about old and new times.
I love you and Auntie Joan xoxo
My thoughts are with my cousins
Kerry, Jackie, Douglas and Uncle Brian sending comforting hugs.

Brian, so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of Joan from StB, her beautiful smile and warm hugs. Her serious approach to golf. There were many wonderful days spent at the course. Please know that our group is thinking of Joan and you at this time.

Treasure the memories.

Peri & I met the Trump’s when we were paired up to golf at St. Charles Country Club. We were a bit concerned that they may be somehow related to the infamous Trump’s, but no worries. Just decent, down-to-earth folks. Joan & I became friends when commiserating over our yoga routines. How many downward dogs could we sustain? Did we really need to meditate? I was always amazed at how flexible she could be. Joan was such a remarkable person - caring, funny & so steadfast. I will remember her unwavering strength & resilience in battling ALS. Our dear friend has left our side, but we are comforted in knowing that she is at peace.
