It's with great sadness that we say goodbye to Joan, Mrs. "C", mamasita, mom, and grandma. She passed away peacefully on April 18, 2021 with the love of her family and the love of her any friends and people that she helped out in her long life. Joan was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on November 24, 1932. She became a nurse and practiced her profession in Argentina, England and Canada. She married the love of her life Ron(Deceased) and together they raised five unique individuals. "Do what you love!", she always said and they did. Alex(Donna), Rick, (Sandy), Sal (Pancho), Rod (Anita), and Simon; grandchildren, Scott and Lauren; Ja, Ves, and Lo; Andrew and Noah; and Olivia and Emerson. Joan loved life, family and lived it to the fullest. She loved to travel, life long participant in Rotary, Spanish teacher and translator, awesome tour guide, passionate animal lover and helping hand to those that needed one. In summary Joan was a Lioness.... a force of nature.... generous with her most valued possession.... time. Wife, mother, mentor, volunteer, grandma.... a lover of music, dancing, dinner parties, and good conversation. She deeply impacted many lives and will be missed dearly... family first... she was truly loved.. rest in peace Mrs. "C". A "Legend" as stated by one of her grandchildren.
we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the doctors, nurses and care staff at Lions Gate Hospital who looked after our beloved mother. Without their gentle and compassionate care we could not have given Joan the peaceful passing that had with her family
