March 8, 1937 – June 5, 2020
at the age of 83 years
With profound sadness we announce the passing of Joan Lemke on June 5, 2020; she died peacefully at Piccadilly Care Centre in Salmon Arm, British Columbia at the age 83. She was a great Woman, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother born on March 8, 1937 in Saskatchewan, the daughter of the late Ezra and Beatrice Hubbard.
She leaves behind a family that she loved and was very proud of. Joan was a dedicated mother first and foremost, she treasured her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, she embraced each moment with them, she was a loving, caring mother who raised two sons and instilled her sons with strong family values and her amazing work ethic that have and continue to serve them well.
Joan lived a full wonderful life of dancing, traveling, gardening, baking and would want to thank some of those that made it possible. Topping that list and most important, her husband of 64 years Martin John Lemke, always her knight in shining armour, her son’s Dwayne Martyn Lemke (Kimberley) and Edward James Lemke (Joanne) along with her grandchildren Jade (Jeremy), Dylan, Sierra (Stephen), Shelby, Torrie, and her great grandchildren Wyatt and Waylon Cox, her brother’s Garry (Irene) Hubbard, Roy (Sylvia) Hubbard, Sisters, Hazel (Marshall) Wolski, and Gayle (Paul) Beaubien, all who loved her dearly and will never forget her wit, charm, grace and undying love and caring for them.
Due to Covid-19 we will not be holding a celebration of life at this time but will make arrangements when social distancing guidelines are less restrictive.
