JOAN PHYLLIS RYLAND (nee FRASER) On Monday, January 5, 2009, at Golden Links Lodge, at the age of 78, Joan passed away with members of her family by her side. Joan left us, peacefully, her suffering finally over after a long battle with Alzheimer's. Her family will miss her deeply, she was very special. She was predeceased by her parents, Alex and Annie Fraser (nee Rogers) and brothers, Donald and Alistair. Joan will be lovingly remembered by her husband Jim; daughters, Wendy (Dave) and Suzanne; sons, Danny (Maureen) and Jamie (Lisa); grandchildren, Christopher, Nichole, Grant, Karli, Jessica and Evan; and her sister Dorice (Frank) Atchison. She will also be remembered by brothers and sisters-in-law, Helen Moir, Marvin and Sharon Ryland, Arnold and Linda Ryland; and Sophie Fraser; and many nieces and nephews. Joan was born and raised in Fort Garry and at the age of 16 went to work for T. Eaton Co. Mail Order. In 1957 she and Jim were married. Her family came before everything and everyone and she dearly loved them all. Special times in her life were the years living and raising her family in Montreal in the 1960s and 1970s.
