It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that our family announces the sudden passing of our beloved mother, sister, grandmother and friend on January 15th, 2016.
Joan was predeceased by Jerry, her husband of 53 years, parents Les and Betty Coles, and son James. Joan is survived by daughters
Jeri-Lynne and Cathy Donn Herrera (Gauri); sisters Jean Thomas and Leslie Charlton (Dennis); grandchildren, Sara, Amanda and Jamie; great grandchildren Jordan, Aiden, Max and Lucas; furbabies Oliver and Lily; as well as extended family and many friends.
Joan was born and raised in Chemainus, BC and later on in Cloverdale, BC, where she met the love of her life, Jerry. Joan and Jerry settled down in Cloverdale to raise their three children and resided there for 30 years.
Joan and Jerry retired early and relocated to
108 Mile Ranch, BC where they pursued their mutual love of fishing and hunting.
Joan will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
A celebration of Joan’s life will be held on Saturday, February 13th, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at the Donn residence in the 108.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the
‘Help Bring Joan Donn Home’ fund at
