    Greg, Graeme and Families. I don’t know if you will remember us but we live at 3519 Button Rd N.W. in Calgary. I last saw your Mom at Valerie Strand’s funeral and spoke with her at that time. My friend Betty Anne Williams whom pasted away with cancer in 2004 used to get together with your Mom. We are sorry to hear of her passing.

    Joan was a good friend and more. She was a breast cancer survivor and a breast cancer cheerleader for my wife Liz Agnew. Her support and encouragement will be missed as much as her great smile and attitude. May she rest in Peace. Most sincere condolences to Greg and Graeme and their loved ones…Dave, Sean and Sam Agnew

    Graeme, Greg & families
    We loved Aunt Joan to the moon and back, and cant believe that she’s gone. I’m so glad for the time we’ve had to get to know her over the last few years, and only wish we could have had just a few more visits. The distance between Calgary and Whitecourt seems so far until something like this happens, and now we just would give anything to make the trip for another great visit with her. She always had us laughing and encouraged our hearts so much each time we were together. We’re going to miss her so much!
    God’s comfort in this time!
