“Everyone should have a Joann in their life” I worked for Joann at TB Registry in Winnipeg from 1976 until 2003 when I retired. Not only was she a GREAT boss but we became good friends to this day. I am now living in Toronto but would visit Winnipeg every year and we would always get together for lunch. We would talk and laugh and catch up on the latest news. The last visit was here in Toronto with Joann and Arlene Jones. We had lunch here at the house. We went to Glory and Doug’s gig, we danced and of course Joann took pictures at the gig and over at the house where they have a home studio downstairs. She took great interest in their music and art. This picture of Joann, Arlene and Myself was taken that last visit we had together in Toronto, You will be missed Joann. God Bless you Gloria Last P.S I will always remember you saying “where’s your lipstick” - Posted by: Mrs. Gloria Last (Friend) on: Apr 23, 2021
I met Joann through her work with the White Cross Guild at the Just Like New to You store - which supports the HSC Foundation. She had such pride in the funds she and her fellow volunteers raised in support of the Foundation. And she had such close friends from the nursing profession. I enjoyed our conversations and will miss the chance to connect with her. - Posted by: Glynis Corkal (Friend from Health Sciences Centre Foundation) on: Apr 16, 2021
I met Joann while she worked for the Central Tuberculosis Registry. My mother was also working there and Joann was someone that I instantly liked. She was a straightforward, no nonsense person and I appreciated that aspect of her personality. I travelled with Joann during several northern tuberculosis surveys while I was employed with the Manitoba Lung Association and was working as an X-ray technician doing x-rays of the local population of many of Manitoba's First Nations Reserves. One of the most enjoyable was a trip to Lac Brochet in the summer of 1982 if my memory serves. Joann also attended my wedding in 88 and we shared many memories of some of those northern trips. I wish to extend my sincerest condolences to her family and friends. She will surely be missed. - Posted by: Mike Maskell (Friend) on: Apr 12, 2021
I remember growing up next to Joann’s family at Grand Beach. Then my children grew up going the beach, as well. I am sure Joann got tired of my siblings and me, then the next generation, saying “Hi Joann” every time we would see her in the yard, on the street, on the beach, or on the veranda. Still, she always had a kind word to say to us. Joann was very involved with events at Grand Beach, whether it was the Legends Dinner, Kitchen Tea fundraiser, Sun Run, bike rally, and too many more to mention. She will be truly missed in the area. Till we meet again, Joann. - Posted by: Louise Dahle (Friend) on: Apr 10, 2021
