Joan “Jackie” Sullivan

(Sept. 5, 1922 – Sept. 25, 2005)

In her own words, “I’ve had a good life, haven’t I?”

Born in Wimbledon, England on Sept. 5, 1922 to Nanny Stilwell. She went through the Depression, saw the Hindenberg, served as a WREN durign WWII, and watched a man walk on the moon.

From among her many suiters, this beautiful young woman married Red Sullivan, the love of her life. She emmigrated to Canada on the Queen Mary as a war bride in 1946 with her daughter Alison.

She was a wonderful mother, a fierce protector and a strong supporter of her children Alison, Kathleen, Barry and Nadine, and took great joy being “Nanny & Nanna” to her grand- and great-grandchildren Tana, Wade, Brook, Amber, Melanie, Samantha, Alex, Jamie and Toras.

Gone to be with Snowball and Tabby, wishing you a garden in constant bloom and butterfly kisses from Alison and Len, Kathy and Allen, Barrie and Debra, and Nadine.
