We the family of Joan Elizabeth Margaret Davis are saddened to announce the passing of our loving Mom, after a short but brave battle with cancer at the age of 74. Mom never wavered in her love and trust in God’s care throughout her illness.

Welcoming Mom home is our father Alexander Davis, our grandparents Dennis and Eleanor Tobin and her sister Phyllis, all of whom she missed dearly.

Left to remember her are her children John (Kim), Darlene, Jackie (George), Michael, Michelle (Jim), Bernard (Sebrina); her sisters Anna, Geraldine, Barbara and Wynnanne; her grandchildren Joseph, Joshua, Natasha, Morgan, James, Jordan, Maddison, Truman and William; her extended family Paddy and Isabelle O’Flaherty and Jennie Nurse; her friends at St Michael’s Church we thank you for your many calls, visits and treats – they really comforted Mom.  Also, her special friend Linda Yard without whom we would not have gotten through these last couple of months (we will always be grateful for you); and her two little constant companions, Flash and Daisy.

Special thanks to Dr. Seviour, Dr. Greenland, Dr. Rorke, and Dr. Dawe and to all the wonderful staff of the cancer clinic, emergency department, paramedics, palliative care unit, pain management team, and community health nurse Diana – thank you, thank you, thank you. Your care of our mother was exceptional.

I met your mother for the first time when I went to the Pilgrim Group at St. Michael’s and where she added so much to the discussions. She made such an impression on me with her wonderful honesty, humour, wisdom, zest for life and a thousand other attributes. She will be sorely missed by many, not just her immediate family. Again, my deepest sympathy to you all. Lis

Our deepest condolences from Peter, Rena, Scott, Sophia, and Abigail. We know she will be missed, but is shining down from above on your whole family.

My condolences to all, Aunt Joan will be missed. She’s now with the angels that watch over us all. RIP Aunt Joan, I wish that I could be there with the family but know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.
