Joan Audrey Washburn

March 11, 1939 - May 9, 2019


Joan Audrey Washburn

March 11, 1939 – May 9, 2019

It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Joan Washburn. Predeceased by her beloved husband Gordon, Joan leaves to mourn her son Ken (Sue), daughter Janet, grandchildren Nigel (Allison) and David (Becky), and many family members and friends across Canada and the USA.

Joan had many interests. She loved a good game of bridge, afternoons curled up with a fine book, travelling by sea, and the odd trip to the casino slot machines. As an accomplished folk artist, she was instrumental in coordinating the Memory Box program for the B.C. Women’s Hospital and Vancouver Island hospitals as well. Until recently she was still helping to decorate the boxes. She will be remembered for her sense of humour, her wisdom and her kindness.

We are deeply grateful to Dr. Gilbert for his gentle care of Mom over the years, and to the nurses at the Cowichan District Hospital for their kindness during her final days.

A Celebration of life will be held at St. Peters Anglican Church, 5800 Church Road, Duncan BC on Thursday, July 18, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.  As Joan loved colors the family requests that you wear lovely bright colors to reflect a beautiful summers day.  Flowers gratefully declined, if so desired memorial remembrances may be made in the form of a donation to Canadian Lung Association or the BC Lung Association.
