December 31, 1967 – Manila, Philippines
May 13, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Joanne Arsenault of Calgary passed away on Monday, May 13, 2019 at the age of 51 years.

Joanne was born in Manilla, Philippines on December 31, 1967 but moved to Canada as a baby.

Joanne graduated from Lord Beaverbrook High School in 1985. Joanne accomplished much through her life and was particularly proud of being a “Gigi” (grandma). Violet and Emmett were her pride and joy and she loved sharing their photos and videos with everyone and anyone who was around. Joanne loved music and to sing and dance. She loved all types of music but especially the 80’s dance hits and anything with a thumpin’ beat. She loved Gilmore Girls and likened herself and her daughter to be the real life “Lorelai and Rory”. She would spend hours watching old movies and reality TV like the Bachelor, Survivor and The Amazing Race. She devoured any type of baked good with lots of butter and was never without a cup of coffee.

Joanne is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Demi Harder and Zachary Harder, of Cochrane, AB; and son, Blake Arsenault, of Calgary, AB, and two grandchildren, Violet Harder and Emmett Harder of Cochrane, AB. Joanne is also survived by her parents, Miriam (Nestor) Pabustan of Gapan City, Philippines. and Arturo (Christine) Garcia, of Manila, Philippines; sister and brother-in-law, Michelle Duggan and Wes Anderson of Calgary, AB; as well as nephew Joshua Garcia and niece Stephanie Duggan of Calgary, AB; half-sister Jessica Garcia; adopted brother Elijah Moses Pabustan; step-brother Karsten Mendoza; Aunt Shirley and Uncle Deo; Uncle Tyrone (Boy) and Aunt LaRainne; Aunt Eileen, Aunt Jeannette, Aunt Beth, Uncle Catalino and Aunt Elizabeth Garcia; Aunt Millicent Aperocho; co-parents-in-law Eva and John Harder; and cousins, Marc, Dion, Sheryl, Paul, Matt, Danica, Krystal, Jayryl, Melanie, Dan David, Andre, Boeden and Cyril. Joanne was predeceased by her sister Melissa Garcia, cousin Jennyca, Uncle Jaime and her beloved dog Merengue.

I did not know your beloved Joanne, nor had I met her, but as a fellow teacher I had to write to say that Joanne looked and sounded like a truly wonderful and special person. My sincerest condolences go out to her family. May God hold you in His loving arms.

Condolence from Kelly Wong on May 26th, 2019 4:00 PM

To Joanne’s daughter, my deepest sympathy goes out to you for your loss. Your mother and I worked together for only a short time but kept in touch over the years. I would have made it to the service but only heard of her passing today. She spoke of you OFTEN and I was able to tell quickly how much she loved you !!! To the rest of Joanne’s family, she was a KIND, SWEET, GENUINE friend and she will be missed. God Bless you all.
