She was predeceased by her husband, Gerry; her brother Dennis; and parents Abe & Katherine.
Joanne had a long career working for School District 23 for 27 years and she volunteered in the community at various events. Her main focus was her family – she spent a lot of time either in the stands, on the sidelines or in theatre seats supporting her children and grandchildren’s various activities. A private service will be held for the family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Joanne’s name to Starbright, www.starbrightokanagan.ca or a charity of your choice.
