Joan Florence Mckay (Henstock)

Date of Death: December 24, 2022


With great sadness, Joan passed away peacefully in her sleep on Christmas Eve, in Ladysmith B.C.  Joan was predeceased in death by her husband Ian Mckay for who she was married for 32 years.  They raised their three sons Timothy (Jodi), Stanley (Lleanne), and Greg in the Cowichan Valley.  Joan was also a Grandma to four grandchildren Alexis, Kate-Lynne (Tim), Grace, and Lucy (Stan).  Joan was loved by her siblings Donald (predeceased) (Erna), Johnny (Diana), and Carla (Bob), as well as many nieces and nephews.

Joan was born in Kamloops, B.C. and grew up in the interior where she met Ian. They moved to the island and settled in Crofton to raise their family.
Not only a wife, mother, and grandmother, Joan was also a great cook, knitter, crafter, baker, and homemaker. Joan’s great sense of humour, her great laugh, and her kind heart will be greatly missed by all.

Thank you to the Lodge on 4th in Ladysmith for their kindness and caring of Joan.

A tea service is to be held at Chemainus Legion on April 8th, 2023 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers please donate to the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Relation: Family friend 1975-1999?

I have only recently heard about Joans passing, I used to work with Joan when she cooked at the Greenhaven restaurant and my husband Tom and I became good friends with Ian and Joan. We visited regularly and camped with them also, celebrated with them with all the arrivals of the boys. Although our relationship waned as we raised our families at different stages, we mourned Ian’s sudden passing and now Joan has gone to meet him. I know she was very proud of her boys.
