Joan – wife, mother, daughter and sister – lived life well. She was born in Washington State and grew up in the Deer Lodge Valley, Montana. Joan met her husband Roy in Montana and from there settled in Yellowknife, NWT. For 24 years they raised their family – Judi (husband Terry) and Brian (wife Lorraine) – adapting to the isolation that Roy’s career took her. Joan’s final years were spent in Kimberley, BC where she and Roy retired. She requested that those who mourn her passing do so quietly and in their own way.
A private family gathering will be held later in the year and internment will take place in the Kimberley Cemetery.
