What a great lady. I am sorry to have missed the memorial, she loved her family so much as well as her horses. I loved the visits we had while she was riding her horse. I will miss you.

Dear Andrea, Aaron and Katrina, we are so sorry to read of the loss of your Mom. We came to know her when we were neighbors on Catherine Drive all those years ago. She loved each of you so fiercely and was so proud of the adults you grew into. She had to face more than her share of hardships in this life, and still, she always had a smile and a laugh, and a kind word. We know you will carry her with you on your own life journeys. Love from Annie and Dave Wilson, Prince George.

It is so sad to hear of Joanne's passing. We grew up together in Ontario and she was always such a good friend. My sympathies to Barb, Derek and Mr. Forbes. Gail Snider (Finlay) Victoria, BC
