1928 ~ 2020

Joan Archibald Arthur (nee Peachey), passed away peacefully at her home in Medicine Hat on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, at the age of 91 years. Joan was born in 1928 in Briercrest, Saskatchewan, third daughter to Eugene and Gertrude Peachey. She grew up in the Briercrest area and often recalled fond memories of farm life and riding horses. In 1948, Joan completed normal school and taught in various schools throughout Saskatchewan and Alberta. She was married September 1950 to William ‘Bill’ Arthur and the couple moved to Edmonton the same year. In 1977, Joan and Bill left Edmonton and moved to Medicine Hat to open their auto dealership – Dunmore Honda. Joan enjoyed spending time with family and her friends. She was a wonderful host of many family occasions where one could count on favourites like, devilled eggs, flapper pie and cream puffs, to enjoy. Playing cards, doing crossword puzzles, drawing and painting were some of the things Joan liked to do. Joan had a ready smile for all she encountered and freely expressed her gratitude to those who helped her in any way. She will be deeply missed by those who knew and loved her. Joan’s memory will live on within her sons, Robert, Ken (Linda), and Hugh (Melinda); sister, Shirley Bowler and family; grandchildren, Rhyan (Darren), Adam (Jocelyn), Nigel, Nathan, Derek and Jacqueline; great-grandchildren, Dylan and Brody as well as all those who held a special place in her heart. Joan was predeceased by her husband Bill; parents, Eugene and Gertrude Peachey; sister, Marion (Bob) Smith and brother-in-law, Joe Bowler. A Private Celebration of Joan’s Life will be held. A public interment and reception will be held at a later date. As a courtesy, the Celebration of Joan’s life will be Live Streamed through Cook Southland’s website.
