Joan loved to travel and over her life was able to visit a large part of the world exploring new things. Joan was born in Vancouver and always considered herself a city girl. After marrying Jack she moved to Langley and then later into Harrison Pointe Retirement residence.

Joan loved to visit and socialize with all her friends, including the activities with her Red Hat groups. Special thanks to the staff at Harrison Pointe for the love and care they provided to Joan these past few years. The support she received there was nothing short of phenomenal.

Our family was so fortunate to have Joan in our lives. When Dad and Joan married, she immediately became involved with each of us and was very much loved by Louise, Kate, Carly, Mitchell and I. She was always keenly interested in how everyone was doing and quickly welcomed us as her family.
We miss you dearly Joan.
Barbara, Maryann, Scott, Graham, Cole, Bill, Mern and Chris, we share your loss and send our thoughts.

I was very fortunate to have met Joan, on a few occasions. I remember a lovely afternoon in which a few of us sat out on my sundeck sipping ice tea, and having a few little munchies. Enjoying the sunshine and having a few laughs. It was especially a wonderful memory of you.I'm sorry to see you go, but happy for you that your no longer suffering.I am there for Maryanne & Scott & Family .
My sincerest thoughts are with you..............Dawn Kelly Shalen

Mom, how strange it will be not speaking every other day on the phone. Sharing a story, a laugh, and encouraging each other. Talking about our days, the challenges, the triumphs. Oh, how I'll miss that. You have always been there for me, my family and oh, how you love the boys. Thank you for your passion for family. I've learnt so much from you and love you with all my heart.

I'll miss you forever, until we meet again.

It will be so hard not being able to talk to you on the phone and hear you telling me to not die on my crazy adventures and to stay out of trouble. Thank you for just being a constant in my life. I will cherish the memories forever and can't wait to see you again in heaven. Love you Nana!
