Obituary for Joan Anne Kirk

December 22, 1943 – March 17, 2024

Joanne passed away peacefully in Vancouver, BC at 80 years of age on Sunday March 17, 2024. She is survived by her daughter Nichole Kirk (Gianpiero), brother Paul Kirk (Debbie), nephews Christopher Kirk (Bobbi) and Jordan Kirk (Brandon), and numerous friends in Edmonton and Vancouver. She was predeceased by her brother Ralph ‘Dick’ Kirk and parents Rosalia Helen Kirk (nee Fridel) and Paul Edward Kirk.

Joanne was a warrior. She was a caring person with some frailties who tried to put her best foot forward every day. She fought for herself regardless of the battle and never gave up. She believed in herself and held her head high with a regal air despite her struggles.

She was named after Joan of Arc and passed on the day celebrating St. Patrick.

Joan of Arc and St. Patrick were not typical Saints. Joan of Arc followed her own divine law and St. Patrick is likely the most celebrated of Saints by imbibers of all nationalities.

Celebrating Joanne on March 17th for her impact on all our lives is a fitting legacy for an unforgettable mother, sister, aunt, and friend.

We will remember the good times and forgive the rest as we continue on our journey to our own heaven.

Thank you for the wonderful care provided by the staff and nurses at Windermere Care Centre.

A celebration of life date to be determined.
