On November 30, 2014 with her family by her side, we said goodbye to a very loving, Joan Darlene Murray. Joan is predeceased by her husband Jack, son Michael and daughter-in-law Tina. Joan is survived and will be lovingly missed by her brother Russell Johnson, son Pat, daughter-in-law Heather, grandsons Russell and Bruce and granddaughter Emily (Janice Bratton) as well as numerous other family members.
A passion for helping people blossomed into a 40+ year career as a nurse working in hospitals in Geraldton, Fort William, Port Alice, Port Hardy and BC Children’s Hospital. She was an active member of the Comox United Church and the St. Joseph’s Hospital Ladies Auxiliary.
She loved playing the role of cheerleader as a mother and a grandmother on many occasions in hockey arenas across the country. The Scott Tournament of Hearts always found its way to her television, fueling her love of curling. She loved to travel, curl, and golf. She dearly loved her family and friends. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Flowers gratefully declined. We ask that you make a donation to the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation in her name. The family also asks that you please take the time to register as an organ donor at www.transplant.bc.ca
A celebration of Joan’s life will take place at Comox United Church, 250 Beach Drive, Comox, BC on Friday, December 12, 2014 at 1:00 pm.
