It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Joan Shelby on December 16, 2010 at the age of 89. Joan was born in Hull, England to Robert and Ethel Wilson. She was one of seven children.
Joan would grow up to fight in WWII where she met and married her husband of 49 years, the late Clifford (Pete) Shelby. They would later move to Canada and have six children of their own. Joan was a wonderful mother and grandmother with a great sense of humor, her family meant the world to her as she did to them.
Joan spent the last two and a half years at Eden Care Home where her granddaughter worked and was able to be with her during her final years, which made her very happy.
Joan is survived by her children Mike, David, Janice, Phyllis and Jean, along with multiple grandchildren & great-grandchildren. Joan was predeceased by her husband Clifford and eldest daughter Carol.
Family would like to give a special thanks to Marion for all her help. Care aides Graham and Rocelle, JoJo from the kitchen, Carmen and Helen for bringing in special treats, Lili for the worry free baths and Marnie and Judy for all their support.
Celebration of life to be held at a later date. Heaven just became a better place. We miss you Grandma! Your memory will be forever in our hearts.
