June 20, 1938 – August 27, 2011
Joan Beverley Tufts (nee Enright), beloved wife of Robert M. Tufts of Coaldale, Alberta, passed away on Saturday, August 27, 2011 at the age of 73 years.
Our loving mother leaves behind her husband Bob of fifty-three years; son Alan (Shari) Tufts of Calgary; grandsons Andrew and Iain; daughter Diane (Pat) Cannon of Winnipeg; granddaughter Alison; daughter Barb (Steve) Horvath of DeWinton, AB; granddaughter Valerie and grandson Randy; son-in-law Dave Love of Calgary; granddaughter Darcie; brother Bruce (Mary) Enright; and sons Tony, Gord and Jeff in Winnipeg. Joan was predeceased by daughter Wendy Love in 2002. She will be missed by her many other family members and close friends.
Those who knew our mother will remember her for her love of music, and exceptional piano playing and sing-a-longs. Her many crocheted dolls and blankets will be a lasting memory for those that have received them. Mom and Dad’s travels with the Bump-a-long Club down to Texas, and Hallock provided them with great times to be remembered and cherished.
Mom was born in Otterburne, MB, and raised her family on Fairlane Avenue in Winnipeg, where many lasting friendships for the whole family were made. After moving to Sanford, MB for thirteen years, Mom and Dad settled in Coaldale, AB.
