She will also be missed by all of her extended family in the UK and USA. She is predeceased by her parents Ethel Stapleton and Arthur Stapleton, and by her brother Gord.
Joan had an immense love for animals. Throughout her life, she has had many pets that have stood by her side. To show her appreciation for her animal friends, she would often donate to Seal Rescue and the World Wildlife Fund. Joan loved to get lost in the imaginary world of fictional novels especially those by her favourite author, James Patterson. Some of her books have been donated to the Cavendish Manor in her honour. She also loved to spend her time watching T.V. shows such as: Coronation Street, Criminal Minds, and CSI. She loved her family very much. Joan was a very strong and independent woman.
The family wishes to extend a big thank you to Cheryl and the staff at Cavendish Manor for their special care and support. Arrangements are entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). Cremation has taken place. An interment will take place at Holy Trinity Cemetery, where Joan will be reunited with her husband. In lieu of flowers, the family requested donations to the Niagara Falls Humane Society.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
