CAMERON, Joan (nee Jack)

May 15, 1927 –  Cambuslang, Scotland

December 17, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Joan Cameron at Rockyview Hospital on December 17, 2018 at the age of 91 years.

Cherished mother to Carolyn “Carrie” Wasden (Harold) and Ian Cameron; much loved grandmother to Caitlyn Boulette (Ivan), Jacquelyn Wasden, and Stevie Cameron. She was a wonderful great-grandmother to Braelyn and Henry Boulette. Outstanding sister and best friend to Jean Davidson and fondly remembered by the Jack and Cameron families of Calgary and Scotland and the Wasden family of Calgary.

Joan was born May 15, 1927 in Cambuslang, Glasgow, Scotland. She was the eldest of four children, born to Alexander Jack and Charlotte Jack (nee Welsh). She moved to Canada in 1956, to be married to her late husband, Lachlan Angus Cameron, who predeceased her in 1975. Together they had three children, son Ian, eldest daughter Carolyn, and youngest daughter Elaine, who predeceased her in 1995.

Joan enjoyed the love and support of the Brothers and Sisters of the Order of Eastern Star for over forty-five years. She served as Worthy Matron of Chinook Chapter #133 in 1976. Joan was awarded a lifetime membership on June 3, 2018. What an outstanding day of fraternal reunions. Mom Cameron had a special place in her heart for Job’s Daughters, acting as Bethel Guardian of Bethel #19.

She traveled extensively with her brothers and sisters to Louisiana, Georgia, Las Vegas, Jamaica, the Caribbean, Alaska and Australia.

Joan was a huge fan of Johnny Reid, attending every concert in Calgary since the start of his career. They developed a profound friendship over the years, which saw her dancing on his stage several times. These mother/daughter dates will be treasured for a lifetime.

At Joan’s request, here will be a private family service. Condolences may be forwarded through

In living memory of Joan Cameron, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB, T2X 3J3, Telephone: 403-256-9575.

  4. My sincere sympathy to Joan’s family. Joan was Secretary of Chinook #133 OES when I was Worthy Matron in 1985. It was before email & Joan had to mail the Notices. Each month I’d hand deliver a letter that I wished included. As Chapter Secretary, I now realize how much I added to her duties. Joan never complained and always had a smile when I visited and a cuppa.

    I’ve known Joan for so many years. She was such an important part of Job’s Daughters not only when I was a member, but when my daughter was a member as well. She was the sweetest, most kind and caring lady and she will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences to her entire family.
