Obituary of Joanne Foster
Peacefully went home to be with her Lord, on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, at the Greater Niagara General Hospital, in her 73rd year. Beloved mother of Paul Berry and Leigh Ann Crawford. Proud Grandma to Kaitlin Crawford and Summer Foster. Dear sister of Carol Ferrari, Susan (Dave) Durnan, Bob (Bonnie) Foster, Frances Foster, Mike (Cathy) Foster and Tim (Michelle) Foster. She will be greatly missed by her many nieces, nephews and lifelong friend Tudy Patterson. Predeceased by her parents (who she loved greatly) Margaret and Ernest Foster, also by her brother-in-law, Domenic Ferrari.
Joanne was a devout parishioner for many years at St. Michaels Roman Catholic Church. She was a true pillar of strength to her family and left them a legacy of love and devotion which will never be forgotten. Her most joyful moments were spent with family and exploring nature outdoors with her grandchildren. Joanne loved bird watching and knew so many kinds of birds. She loved walking along the Welland Canal and researching its history. She really enjoyed watching her British mystery shows and loved discussing them in Facebook groups. She was such a loving and compassionate mother, sister, aunt and friend and will be so dearly missed.
A special thank you to the nurses and doctors at the Hamilton and Niagara Falls Hospital for their care and support.
