Obituary of Joan Roberts
Peacefully surrounded by her family, Joan passed away on Saturday, March 26, 2022, at the Welland Hospital, at the age of 87. Joan has been reunited with her beloved husband John and her son Clayton. She will be lovingly remembered by her children Karl (Dawn) and Tracey (Chris) Berni. Sweet Nana of Ashley (Amanda), Jessica, Kadin (Megan) and Jordon. Dear sister of Christine (David), and sister-in-law of David (Maureen) and Teresa (Peter). Joan will be fondly remembered by her nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
She enjoyed a lifetime of memories which included travelling around the world with John, to some of their favourite places like Hawaii, Florida and Hong Kong. The most cherished moments in life were spent with her family, going with them on many occasions to get french-fries, drinking the finest coffee and indulging in all types of cheese! She enjoyed sketching, spending time in her garden (which was an inherited hobby that she learned from her father William, while growing up in the United Kingdom), and simply being outside soaking up the sunshine and enjoying nature. Mom is now at rest and in her eternal paradise, on a warm sandy beach by the water. She will be dearly missed.
A special thank you to the friendly community at Villa De Rose Retirement Residence, for being kind and caring neighbours and for making Joan feel so welcomed and at home. In accordance with Joan’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A gathering of family and friends will be held at Essentials Cremation and Burial Services, 221 Division Street, Welland, on Saturday, April 2, 2022, from 11am-1pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the Trees that Feed Initiative (Rotary Club St. Catharines South). Online condolences may be shared on Joan’s tribute page found at EssentialsNiagara.com.
