SELIN, Joanne Lea

August 16, 1965 – Maidstone, Saskatchewan
August 5, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Joanne beloved wife of David Selin of Calgary, passed away on August 5, 2018 at the age of 52 years.

Jo grew up in rural Saskatchewan, completed Business College and married Dave in 1985. They moved to Calgary, Alberta in 1987. Jo attended University of Calgary attaining a Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing. She worked briefly at the General Hospital, as well as spending three years working at Foothills Hospital. Returning home from shift one day in 1999 Jo was hit from behind by a drunk driver.
That incident began the spiral into what eventually became her major battle against renal illness. When well enough to work again, Jo chose to specialize in renal care, working in Dialysis, Home Dialysis and later as a nurse clinician in CKD. She loved working with her patients and they knew she truly understood what they were going through as she shared those same trials daily.

Joanne was constantly learning and completed her Masters of Nursing with the University of Victoria, graduating in 2016. She became a clinical nurse educator with the Southern Alberta Renal Program. She enjoyed working there, loved and cared about everyone of her colleagues.

The family wish to thank the doctors, staff-nurses, and the other healthcare professionals from ER, CCU, ICU, PCU’s 37 & 27 who cared for Jo; Thank you.

Joanne is survived by her husband Dave, her son Bradyn, her brothers David and Roger Skolrood, her sister Leanne Powell and her mother and father, Elsie and Cecil Skolrood.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, August 21, 2018 from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, Jubilee Room to share memories of Joanne. In lieu of flowers please make a memorial donation to any charity you support.

Offer Condolence for the family of SELIN, Joanne Lea

    Dave and Bradyn,
    Joanne was an inspiration to all of us in SARP. To accomplish what she did in the face of her illness was no less than incredible, and she remained so quiet about her personal struggle. We will miss her very much.

  13. I was one of Joanne’s preceptors when she was doing her Masters degree. She was a true pleasure to work with and I will never forget her bright eager eyes and her enthusiasm for new ideas during our many conversations. She was kind, very courageous and empathetic. It is sad to think she is no longer with us. I join with everyone else in sending my condolences to her family.

  22. I didn’t know Joanne well at all – only through contact with but her and Dave online in the virtual gaming world. Both of them were a pleasure to hang out with talk to and Joanne lit up any conversation she was part of.
    I can’t begin to imagine the impact her loss is having on Dave and Bradyn but hopefully you can take some small comfort in knowing the positive impact she had on all who knew her.
    Take care both of you. My thoughts and love are with you.
