November 27th, 2013
Joan was born in St. Thomas, Ontario and the family moved to Alberta after the war. Joan received her education in Camrose, Provost, Wainright and a Secretarial College in Edmonton. Joan married Dennis Plante on December 30, 1966 in Vancouver, BC. Predeceased by her parents Russell and Ann Lemon, sister Dwyne and brothers Chris and Jim. She is survived by her husband Dennis, daughter Brenda, son Daniel, grandson Nicky, brother in law Earl Gillespie & family and sister in law Lola Lemon & family. Joan made many friends through her passion for gardening, reading, music and art. She worked as a library technician in school libraries until retiring in 2006. She always felt fortunate that her work allowed her to help the children appreciate reading. Joan enjoyed retirement by involvement in her church, art and garden clubs, her volunteer work and her lovely flower garden. Joan made friends easily as she could always see the good in everyone. Her greatest wish was to see her grandson grow into a well educated young man. A memorial will be held at the Chemainus Royal Canadian Legion, February 1, 2014 at 1:30 PM.
