Joan, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, auntie and friend passed away peacefully and without pain, early Wed., Dec. 19, 2012 at Piccadilly Park Care Home in Salmon Arm.
Joan was born in Manitoba and lived her early years there until meeting and marrying the love of her life, Sigurd Larsen. They moved to BC in the late 1960’s and then settled in the Sicamous/Canoe area.
Joan leaves behind her loving husband of 58 years, Sid (“The Barber”), three sons Rick (Ivy), Don (Denise) and Cam (Marisa), five grandchildren, five great grandchildren, three brothers Ness (Merle), Allen (June), and David (Ruby) as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
Joan loved life and always made the most of every season, situation and connection. She will be sorely missed and never forgotten
A special thank you to the nurses, care aids and support staff at Piccadilly who loved and cared for Joan the last three years with such humour, dignity and respect.
A service honouring Joan’s life will be held in the new year.
Laura, thank you for your kind words and rememberances. Our sympathies to you on the loss of your mother as well. I will be sure to pass your condolences on to Sid.
Thank you – take care,
Marisa and Cam Larsen.
Dear Mr Larsen & Family,
I am so very sorry to hear about Mrs Larsen’s passing. I always enjoyed chatting with you & Mrs Larsen at the Canoe Post Office. My Dad (Frank Mork) used to love curling with you & getting his hair cut while you all lived in Sicamous. My Mom (Pat Mork) just passed away on Boxing Day so I know how you’re feeling right now. Please know I’m thinking of you all and send you hugs. I hope Joan & Pat are together having a coffee & catching up on things in heaven.
Warm Regards, Laura Willis (Mork)
Always loved, never forgotten.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this difficult time.
Love Laurie xxxx
