Book of Condolences

Katrina WhiteSteve, Pina, Sheri and family I was so very sad to learn of Joanne’s passing. I so enjoyed coming to London to visit and she always referred to her spare room as ‘my room’. She was so full of life and I loved spending time with her, whether it was a drive to Port Stanley or a show at the Grand Theatre. And if we could get a game of euchre organized, all the better! My trips back to London will never be the same without spending time with Joanne while there. My thoughts are with you and your families during this difficult time.
Marla PoirierMy deepest sympathies are with you all. She was one of a kind and will be missed by all who knew her. I wish I knew the right words to say to you all at this difficult time. Please know you're all in my thoughts & prayers
Jean SillsSteve, Pina, Sheri, Chris, Gabriella, Jordan, Bradley and Jacob, Joanne's death has created a void in the lives of all who knew her. Her energy, enthusiasm, competence in whatever she tackled and her winning smile enthralled us all. She may be out of our sight but never out of our hearts. Rest in peace dear sister-in-law.
Jim SillsWords cannot convey the level of my sympathy for the loss of Joanne. Although we did not spend anywhere near the amount of time together that either of us would have wished for, the moments shared have forged memories for me to lovingly access for an eternity.

Noreen MorinoI am so sorry to hear about Joanne's passing. How sad. I'll always remember that she sent me flowers when Ken got a major attendance reward. She told me that she felt wives deserved some of the credit for their husbands getting into work every day. Ken thought very highly of Joanne and would often tell me how capable she was. I will miss her and the lovely notes she sent us every Christmas. My Deepest Sympathies to all of the family.
