Muriel (Joan) Dakers

December 10, 1936 – January 18, 2021
Muriel (Joan) Dakers, 84, passed away peacefully at home in Campbell River on January 18, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Victoria to the late Norman and Muriel Stewart on December 10, 1936, Joan is survived by her husband, Don Dakers, as well as 3 children, Rod Fraser (Kerstin), Carol Ferguson (Chuck), John Fraser (Holly); 3 step children, Richard Dakers (Mariah), Karen McMillan (Duane), Ron Dakers (Glory), 17 grandchildren, and 19 great grandchildren. Joan’s first husband was the late Norman Fraser. She was predeceased by her sister, Anne Best.
Joan graduated from Victoria High School to begin work at Heaney Moving, and later at the Queen’s Printer. Upon her marriage to Don Dakers, she moved to Campbell River where she worked for many years at the B.C. Ministry of Forests.
Joan and Don, with family and friends, spent many happy times at their cabin at Horne Lake, where they enjoyed boating, fishing, and the beauty of nature. Joan loved to play her piano and enjoyed crocheting and knitting for her family.
An avid genealogist, she completed in depth research into her ancestral heritage.
The family thanks Dr. Veerapen as well as the home care workers, nurses, and LPN’s Kaitlin Dakers and Andrea Wiley who comforted Joan in her final days. The family will meet later this year to celebrate the life of Joan Dakers.
The family asks that, instead of flowers, donations be made to the MS Society of Canada.
