Cousens/Currie, Joan Elizabeth
Peacefully at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital of Ottawa, on Sunday, May 29, 2016 at the age of 81. Beloved wife of the late George Cousens. Loving mother to Jennifer, John (Anick), David (Annette) and Geoff (Donna). Loved grandmother of Eve, Thomas, Michael, Isaac, Ted, Kassandra and Braden, and great-granddaughter, Paislee. Joan is survived by her sister Deanna Bradley (late Gilbert). Joan made her home in the Ottawa Valley and was active in the Parish of Huntley and Carp community. She could often be found atop a ski hill, at the rink figure skating, or swimming at Robert Simpson Park. She was the life-of-the-party, and was known for organizing the best community events, parties and family get-togethers. In her earlier years, Joan worked as an X-Ray Technologist at the Carp Medical Clinic and volunteered at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital.
