Joan was a great lady and was a dear friend and neighbour for 53 years. We enjoyed many trips together with Joan and Murray, my mom and dad Winnie and Henry and my wife Judy. We spent many weekends at the cottage and many many laughs together. Joan and Murray and their family are not just friends we are family. She will be missed.

Carol, David, Andrew, Michael and David, Cathy and Sarah, please accept our deepest sympathies on the loss of your dear Mum. Carol and David, I will always remember the feeling of warmth, laughter and happiness in your parent's home - especially the first time I was told about the shopping cart incident. Your love for each other was a joy to see.
We all enjoyed spending time with Mum Orr and John especially loved her warm sense of humour. We are saddened by her loss and we will miss her very much.
With love,
