She was born Aug 1, 1938 in Hamilton, ON, grew up in Guelph, ON with a large and supportive family. Predeceased by her ex-husband William Lorne Newstead. Mother of Cindy (Doug) Brown, Kim (Steve) Almond and Ken (Debbie) Newstead. Grandmother to Steven, Bradley, Melissa, Amanda, Ian, Michelle, Collin, Jordan, Sarah and Jane. Great Grandmeema to Marques, Karley and Logan. <br />Retired after 35 years at Shoppers Drug Mart, where she met and influenced many customers and colleagues throughout her entire career. She was adored and respected by her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and will be missed for her quick wit, tolerance, wisdom and strength. <br />She will be remembered most for her terrific sense of humour, love of family, large family get togethers, and let's not forget her little furry friends (mostly Stubby the squirrel) and daily peanut treats. Joan's favourite things were watching TV, reading, dinners and trips to the casino with her closest friends, but most of all supporting any charities she could (large or small); knitting and crocheting hats, baby outfits and squares for blankets which she donated to LHSC NICU, Blankets for Canada, Salvation Army, Chinese Orphanages, etc. <br /> <br /></div>
