Joanne Legaré

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Joanne Legaré (neé Smith). She is cherished by her loving and caring husband of 39 years, Claude, and their beloved children and families: Curtis and his partner Sabryna (Hassan); Terron, his wife Ashley (Crepin) and their daughter Levi; and Sabrina, her husband Jake (Morris) and their son Dutton. She leaves a void in the hearts of her siblings and their spouses – Steven (Gordon Josephson), and Lori (Jacques Martin); and her sisters-in-law Louise (Richard Martin) and Sue Mainville; and her many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Robert Smith and Denise (née Lajoie).

Joanne was a welcoming and kind spirit who did not hesitate to share what she had with others and who frequently opened her home and heart to those who needed support or just a kind ear. She had a wonderful sense of humour (often about herself), and she loved bringing her family together for good times. She enjoyed her summers on White Lake with her “trailer” friends and tending to her large gardens.

Her husband and children would like to thank the home palliative team who supported Joanne in her final weeks of cancer care. While her time with us was shorter than we would have liked, we are fortunate to have had her in our lives for the time that we did, and she will live on in our hearts.
