November 19, 1931 – Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
February 5, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta
Joan Gourlay, beloved wife of Robin C.B. Gourlay, of Calgary passed away on February 5, 2015, surrounded by the comfort of her family.
Our community loses a spot of color without Joan. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, and a loyal and inspiring friend to many. Her infectious enthusiasm lit up every encounter, and she found humor at every turn.
Joan leaves behind her husband Robin; daughters, Moragh Gourlay LeGallais (Chris) and Shona Gourlay; and grandchildren, Charlotte and Richard LeGallais.
A private family service was held on Thursday, February 12, 2015, following cremation.
Please join family and friends at a Celebration of Life for Joan on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the Southern Alberta Pioneer’s Club (3625 – 4 Street S.W. Calgary, AB). Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Joan was deeply committed to helping Calgarians in need. If friends so desire, please consider a donation in Joan’s memory to a cause of your choice.
