Pleas accept my sincere sympathy at this most difficult time. I spent a few nights in Port Blandford with Danny and Joan. Jeanette, Hilda and myself would go. Many great memories and great laughs.

Janet, Mike and Family.

So very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this extremely difficult time.

Janet, Susan, Karen, Bob and Families. My heart is breaking for you all on the loss of your Mom and Grand mother. Although I was Joan’s and your Dads caregiver for a couple years on a part time basis, I felt more like Family as that’s the way she was. We had such amazing chats and she was always concerned about what ever was going on. On my lunch breaks, we would always watch the fashion shows and she would ask my opinion on “would that look good on an old woman”I told her that if she put on a flour sack, it would look good. She was the classiest lady I knew. Even when I was just there caring for them, she looked great. Always looked as if she was going out on the town, I’ll never forget her scarves. One show we watched one day, she loved this lime green jacket that was being worn on one of the models. Sure enough, a couple weeks later, she had it come. Not sure if she kept it or not.😀 I learned so much from her. She would tell me stories from her nursing days and when they lived in town. She dearly loved her Children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and she just beamed when she spoke of them. And her Buddy Caper , I’ve never seen a dog with so many treats to choose from. What ever a Joan did, she did with a heart and a half. She truly was a wonderful lady and I was blessed with having her in my life . Even though it was a short time, it was like a lifetime. You will be so missed sweet lady. You are now reunited with your Darling Danny. 🌹

Janet, Mike, Julia & family,
I’m so sorry to learn of your Mom’s passing. It is so difficult losing our parents and especially hard to lose both in such a short time span. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Janet & Jim

So very sorry to hear of Joan’s passing. She was such a vibrant lady and full of life! I had the privilege to spend many moments in my lifetime with her while spending time with my beloved best friend Heather who is still always very much missed! Please accept our heartfelt condolences with the loss of such a lovely woman.

I am so sorry to hear of Joan’s passing. I didn’t know her in my adult life, but I will never forget how she was when I was a kid as I visited my grandparents in the summer months in Port Blandford. I remember her for her humour, her beautiful garden, and the time she invited myself and my
cousin, Kristen for a sleepover. We had so much fun, and thought it was so cool that an adult would give us coffee before bed! I didn’t sleep a wink that night, but I loved every minute! She was such an easy-going, kind, fun, and free spirit, and it saddens me to not ever have the opportunity to share another coffee and laugh with her. Please know that I will be thinking of her family and friends for the days to come.

It is with a heavy heart that I hear of Joan’s passing. I remember when myself and Bob made the move from Port Blandford to CBS, I dreaded to leave my good friend. Joan was lovely to everyone she would meet, she always made our grandchildren feel welcomed into her home, and our friendship was quickly established. Bob and I always enjoyed her fun and outgoing energy and had many great memories with her and Dan. Sending my sincere condolences to Joan’s family during such a difficult time. You will all be in my thoughts for the time to come.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences – Joan was such a wonderful friend we shared so many conversations – always a story. She deeply loved all of her family when you were coming to visit off she would go not enough groceries to be bought ! She was such an inspiration to all always kind words & encouragement! I will miss her dearly feel so sad had called her short while ago she was sleeping – never got to have that last conversation. Love to all of you ! Keep all your previous memories of her and cherish each one . Rest In Peace my dear Friend !

My deepest condolences to all of Joan’s family and friends, I worked with Joan many years ago, she was a beautiful lady, and took pride In helping others. May all her beautiful memories, help you get through this difficult time. Rest in peace.

Joan was a colleague, a lovely, caring woman. I am so sorry that you have lost both your mother and your father in such a short time. Sincere condolences.

I received the news of joan’s passing .. I had the pleasure of working with Joan and sonny, and they both were a joy to work for. Caper will surely miss her , he is one of a kind . Many condolences to all the family at this and may god give you strength in the coming days…

So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing!! She was such a beautiful person whom I was glad to call a friend.She will be missed by us all.RIP sweet lady. Sarah Greening, quilting buddy.

Sue. I didn’t know your mother, but if she was at all like you, the world has lost a bright, compassionate, kind lady. So sorry for your loss.

You were one very special lady Mrs. Stone. I will never forget the time you gave up your hospital bed in Clarenville for my daughter (Toni Stagg). God love her!

So very sorry to hear of the passing of this wonder, talented, caring, amazing woman. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. She touched so may lives in such a positive way, be it through her may years of nursing or in her personal life. I for one was positively impacted by her and am proud to have known her. Heart felt condolences to the Stone family. Love to all.

My loved and loving friend has passed away.
Like sisters since 1953 when we became student nurses at ‘The Grace’ over the years we have shared many experiences. Vic was their best man and I, a bridesmaid; Vic, Karen’s godfather; Joan, seeing me through the birth of our first child and celebrating the births that followed.. Between 1957 and 1963 we gave the world TEN beloved children – as well as working outside our homes.. Camping, parties – so much we did together. Fourteen of us, plus Buffy, your beloved dog, on one site at Marco Polo Land in PEI.!
Then the weddings, the grandchildren, class reunions, life at Port Blandford.. The heartbreaking experience of each of us losing a daughter! So much we shared.
Dear Joan, with your precious family I and my family mourn your passing.. Rest in peace.
With love and thanks for being part of my life. Pauline

Janet and Family,

Thought and prayers are with you, hold tight to your precious memories…

Doris & Eugene
