Joan Budge

February 20, 1937 – April 2, 2015

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our much loved Joan who passed away on April 2, 2015 after a long battle with dementia.

No service was her wish, instead, please remember Joan enjoying her favorite pastimes; a game of Bingo with friends, or a good old fashioned puzzle, and as spring arrives, the joy of puttering in her garden and making pies and perogies for friends and neighbors.

She loved to laugh and had a gift of befriending everyone she met. Truly a lovely woman. She believed we shall all meet again and that kindness truly did matter. So raise a glass with dinner tonight and remember our Joan, for we were blessed in knowing her and benefitted from having her in our lives.

A great big thanks to the staff at Yucalta Lodge. She never felt alone there and you made her final days comfortable. We appreciate all of you.
