Mario Tancon, grandchildren Angela (Jose) Flores, Chantelle (Davide), Siri, Ryan MacPhee, Trinity, Gabriel, Hanna, Izzie Savage, Kenneth (Tayna), Gregory (Janell), Michael (Emily M) Bouzan, incl.

Joan was well known as a friendly outgoing, hardworking, generous person who always put others before herself. She loved and lived in Campbell River almost all her life. Beginning work at a café at a young age, raising family, working at a tree farm then retiring from fish processing. She loved fishing and was a famous icon at the Pier, reeling in many trophy sized fish. Joan was a classy, proud individual who loved to sing and dance, garden and crafting of all kinds. She had a great passion, spending many hours researching her genealogy. Her favorite of all was the joy she had with her grand and great- grandchildren. Joan will be missed by many as she was loved by many and will forever be in our hearts.
A gathering for Joan will be held next summer at the Pier. Date will later be announced.
