Joanne was sadly predeceased by her son Brent, her sister Sharon Ruttan, her nephew Cory Gagne and her father Joseph Gagne.
Joanne is remembered for love of family, generosity, kindness and sense of humor. Her love of dogs was apparent over the years with too many to list. Anyone that visited the home knew that the dogs ruled.

She requested no flowers but donations to the Ty Watson House of Port Alberni.
