Joan Margaret Sexton

Windsor, ON

Joan Margaret Sexton, 88, of Montreal, High Park Toronto, Roseville Michigan, and Windsor Ontario passed away peacefully on January 11th, 2021 due to congestive heart disease. Beloved Mother to John Sexton and Jackie Ducharme, predeceased by daughter Jo-Anne Sexton, Grandmother to Natalee and Julia Ducharme, Sister to Larry and Shirley McManus, Aunt to Ray, Michael, Patrick Sexton and Anne Marie Blais and Mother-in-law to Bernadette Seward and Paul Ducharme. She was predeceased by her treasured Friend, Patricia Swift, Sister Barbara Sexton and Parents, Florence and Stanislas McManus. Joan was a tremendous role model for everyone she encountered throughout her childhood and adult life and applied the adage, “Do onto others as you would have them do onto you” in every interaction she had with her family, friends, co-workers and her community.

A full life lived.

She put her heart and soul into doing everything she did extremely well – from mother to grandmother, to employee, to neighbour, to friend and sister - with incredible sensitivity and thoughtfulness.

Joan had an extraordinary amount of fearlessness – especially when it came to speaking up for anyone who needed her help or assistance in gaining the level of respect, she knew they deserved. Her generosity had no boundaries. Joan will be remembered as an indomitable spirt whose strength, intelligence and tremendous independence provided the absolute best gift to her family and all who knew her –the treasure of knowing how to live our best life – in every season.

Joan will be deeply missed.
