Joan was born in Toronto, Ontario to Gordon and Ethel Parsons on November 29, 1932. She stayed in Toronto through her childhood and marriage before moving to Richmond, B.C. in 1964. Joan spent many years working as a processor in the banking industry and later did some bookkeeping. She lived in Richmond until 2019 when she moved to Revelstoke to be closer to her daughter.
Joan enjoyed knitting, puzzles, billiards, golf, bowling, skating and animals. She had a special affinity for horses. While Joan had not lived in Mount Cartier Court for very long, she brightened many days with her smile and cheery personality.
