Joan was a woman with many interests. She loved her family, spending time outdoors and her crafts. A favourite spot to hike was Ragged Falls. Joan collected driftwood, liked to garden, went on family boat rides, picnics, spent time at the lake and was an avid reader. Joan was also very skilled and enjoyed knitting, sewing and made beautiful quilts. She was a proud member of her quilt group "Stisted Stitchers." It was being a wife, mother and grandmother that gave her the most joy in life.
