Condolence from Vina & Gerald Moses on October 17th, 2014 1:34 pm

So sad to hear of Joan’s passing… She was a wonderful gal. I first met Joan when I was a spare at bowling when I first came to Liverpool area. Then she was our patient and she used to call and say “It’s me nuisance” and we had great chats. She and Robert met us many times at Transcotia and we missed seeing them there when Robert passed on. I will miss her stories and her upbeat personality… She loved her children and grandchildren and kept us up to date on what they were up to. I know she was looking forward to a trip out west and am so sad she was unable to do so. Condolences to all her family and friends. Vina

Condolence from Tim McDonald on October 22nd, 2014 4:01 pm

Joan was one of the nicest people you could ever meet. We bowled together on the Thursday night league and the last years that I bowled we were on the same team. I got to know her well and got to know how sweet and kind she really was. She loved her family and mentioned them often. Her treats and baked goods were something I always looked forward to at our Bowling parties. I would like to extend my condolences to the Flemming family at this sad time.
