Obituary


Joann McDonnell passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at Huntsville District Memorial Hospital in the loving presence of Mike and the kids.  She left us much too early at the age of 57 after the devastating effects of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.  Joann was born on January 2, 1963 and grew up in North Bay with her four siblings, Julie (Murray), Jim, George and Janis and her parents the late James & Shirley McDonnell.  She is survived by her beloved life partner, Michael Frew and children, Joey McDonnell and Blake Frew.  Joann will be dearly missed by her many nieces, nephews and extended family.


Joann worked as an Administrative Clerk at the Huntsville Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police and leaves many friends to mourn her passing.  She will be remembered for her caring and bubbly personality, her love of reading and cooking but more importantly the love and devotion she had for her family.
