THOURET, JOANNE CATHERINE

September 4, 1931 – March 11, 2008

It is with great sadness that the family of Joanne announce her passing on March 11, 2008.

Joanne was born in Invermere and chose to spend her life in the Columbia Valley. Joanne is survived by daughters, Nancy (Douglas) Morrison of St. Louis, Jill (Len) Clark of Edgewater, and son Raymond (Audrey) of Calgary, grandchildren, Rebecca McPherson, Melissa (Ralph) Clark-McGrath and great-grandchildren, Trinity and Cassidy.

Joanne was predeceased by her husband George and parents George and Gladys Watt.

Joanne had a love for the outdoors starting as a cook for the Alpine Club of Canada and later camping, fishing and hunting.

Her family wishes to thank the staff of Columbia Garden Village for their dedication and care over the years.

At Joanne’s request, no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her memory to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB).
