Joan Dorothy Smith

It is with profound sadness that the family of Joan Smith of Thornbury announces her passing on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at the age of 88. Joan left us peacefully and on her own terms.

Born on May 9, 1932 in Kearney, ON, Joan was a daughter of the late Harry and Helen (nee McManus) White.
She was predeceased by her beloved husband Glenn Smith in 2012.
Joan leaves behind her children Paul Smith and his wife Michelle of Vineland, Bill Smith of Toronto, Sara Smith of Thornbury, and was predeceased by her daughter Catherine Smith.
She was the much loved grandmother of Christopher Smith and his wife Leah of Burlington and ‘GG’ to Sloane.
Joan loved her career as a RNA (now known as a RPN), and later in her career worked for Care Partners. During the ‘in between years’ Joan was a wonderful stay at home mom and followed her beloved Glenn to 10 different places in Ontario.  She has touched many lives in the various towns and cities they spent time in.
There will be a private family graveside service at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Kearney,  under the direction of the Opatovsky Funeral Home-Dempster Chapel, 210 Ontario Street in Burk's Falls.
