She will be lovingly remembered by her sisters, Sherry (Vern) Tourand, Jean (Ken) Kemash, and Donna Trimble; her brothers Bob Trimble and Tonie Trimble; nieces Terry and Katrina; and nephews Greg, Michael, and Jason. Also mourning her loss is her extended family John and Donna Vanderraad, Melissa, Stephen and Levi.


Predeceased by her father Jim Trimble in 1980, brother Pat in 1981, and mother Dolly Trimble in 1988.


Joanie was born in Quesnel on December 7, 1949 and lived at home with her mother, father and siblings. She took pleasure in many things including knitting, hooking rugs, and singing her favourite song, “You Are My Sunshine.” The times Joanie enjoyed most were when all of the family gathered together.


Goodbye, Sunshine
