It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Joan Eva Hall at the age of 88 on Sunday, Oct. 17, 2010 at the Riverside Health Care facility in Fort Frances, Ont.
She was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, Chuck, and one infant son, Brian James.
Mom was born May 14, 1922 in Winnipeg, Man. Her childhood years were spent in Lavalee and for most of her life she resided in Rainy River, Ont.
Mom was a very active member of her community. She also loved playing cards and looked forward to her casino bus tours with her beloved friends.
With all of her interests and activities, the most important part of Mom’s life was her family. She was never happier than when she had a houseful of relatives.
Mom is survived by her children, Jan Bosma (Bob), Craig (Connie), and Jim (Denise); grandchildren, Shannon, Kristen (Mike), Danielle (Pascal), Jayson, Kaitlin, Melanie, and Jamie; and great-grandchildren, Jonah, Telia, Shaye, Lilyan, Tanner, Halen, and Liam.
