Obituary

M. JOANNE SMITH (published on January 24, 2009)



M. JOANNE SMITH Peacefully on Tuesday, December 16, 2008, M. Joanne (Joan) Smith passed away at the Grace Hospital after a brief illness. Joan was born on June 2, 1920 in Fort William, ON. She was a very proud homemaker during her 53 year marriage to her loving husband Morse who predeceased her in 1999 after a lengthy illness. Prior to Morse taking sick they loved to vacation every winter in Hawaii, listen to Dixieland jazz, and cheer for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Joan ( Mimmie ) baked a mean cheese cookie and was known to play a little honky-tonk piano at a few neighbourhood parties. Her memory will be cherished by her daughter Suzanne (Murray), son Michael (Ramona), grandchildren, Michael, Laura (Steve), Jamie and Noah, nieces and nephews. According to Joan's wishes, cremation has taken place and her remains will be buried next summer alongside her husband at Lake Shebandowan, ON. An informal gathering to celebrate Joan's life will be held for family and friends on Saturday, January 31, 2009 between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. at her home. The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at the Grace Hospital for their care and compassion. Special thanks to Joan's niece (Cindy) and her many longtime neighbours who were so good to her. In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, a donation may be made in memory of Joan to a charity of their choice.
