It is with great sadness that the family of Joanna announce her passing on September 21, 2020, at the age of 80. She was predeceased by her husband Roger and son David. Joanna is survived by her sister Mandy Latiff; daughters Nancy Brandon, Judy Lauer (Miles), Lisa Blacklock, and Mark Blacklock (Sharon); grandsons Kyle Brandon (Robyn Burgess) and Ethan Blacklock; and one great-granddaughter Averie Burgess-Brandon.
Joanna was born in England, immigrated to Canada as a teenager where she later met and married her husband Roger. They lived in Calgary, Fort McMurray and later retired in Kelowna.
Joanna was a very active member of her community. She donated endless hours of her time. She was involved with the Elizabeth Fry Society, Community Policing, Victim Services and the Seniors Living & Retirement centre.
She was dedicated to her family and loved by everyone that knew her. She had many lifelong friends and only had kind words to share. Her kindness, warmth, generosity and humour will be greatly missed.
