December 24, 1960 - May 25, 2020

Sadly, Joanne has passed away as a result of a ten month battle with cancer. Joanne was a very strong human who left her smile with all she encountered. She rarely stopped moving, always on a home improvement project or growing mutant sunflowers and tasty garden treats.
She leaves to mourn Ken, husband/pal of 30 years along with numerous family members and friends. Joanne and Ken spent 15 wonderful years in Roblin, Manitoba, a couple of years in Gimli and the last 15 in Lac du Bonnet.
There will be no funeral service, so if you can simply find the time to remember her fondly and have a little party of your own.
Please donate to Cancer Care Manitoba and the Winnipeg Humane Society.
