SMITH, Joanne Helen

May 21, 1947 – July 17, 2012

Joanne Smith of Calgary passed away on July 17, 2012 at the age of 65 years after a three year struggle with heart disease. She will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

Joanne was born in Banff, Alberta on May 21, 1947 and moved to Calgary at a young age where she lived most of her life. She began work at an early age and never stopped. She took great pride in her work and providing for her family. Joanne was a dedicated employee of Lafarge Canada for over 15 years.

Her happiest moments were the births of her grandchildren, Cailynne, Nyla and Garrett. She enjoyed her trips to Mexico with Ron, her partner for over 20 years. She loved reading, walking and spending time with her grandchildren. She also loved animals and had many pets throughout her life. One of her many great qualities was that she cared and thought about others before herself. She was very considerate and never forgot important dates like birthdays and anniversaries. She loved Sunday dinners and holidays with her family, watching her grandchildren at their activities, and camping and fishing.

She is survived by her common-law husband Ron Kuntz; her sons, Sean (Thera) and Jason (Stacie); grandchildren, Cailynne, Nyla and Garrett. She is also survived by her mother Genevieve Little, sister Evanthia Bosworth, and several cousins, nieces and nephews. Joanne was predeceased by her first husband Tony Smith, sister Lillian Rupert, and her father George Andrianakos.

Funeral services will be held at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church (1121 – 14th Avenue S.W. Calgary, AB) on Monday, July 23, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
