PIERZCHALA JoanPosted: April 11th, 2016
1924 – 2016
92 Years Young
With both sadness and gentle relief, Joan’s family announces her passing on April 5th, 2016. Joan was born in Montreal on January 18, 1924 and made her home in Lethbridge for 70 years. She was the seventh child of 15 children and her fabulous stories will never be forgotten. Many lives were touched during her career of 25 years with Green Acres Foundation. After retiring in 1992, Joan had more time to spend crafting for family and friends, golfing and enjoying time at the LSCO and the CNIB.
We will never have an ice cream cone without thinking of “Baba”.
Joan is survived by her loving family: Gail Cook (Brad Leggett), Powell River; Ron (Lynda), Lethbridge; Bryan (Barb), Lethbridge; Sandra Kirk, Lethbridge; 11 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; four sisters, one brother and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved sons, Donald and Michael (Kathy).
We extend our sincere thanks to the staff at Fairmont Extendicare for their wonderful care.
A Celebration of Joan’s Life will take place at 11:00am on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at ST. AUGUSTINE’S ANGLICAN CHURCH, 411-11 St. S., Lethbridge, AB, with Canon Allan McQuaig, officiating.
