Gill, Carol Joan
October 26, 1940 – August 31, 2017
No longer in our lives to share, but in our hearts, you are always there. Beloved wife of Bruce for 54 years. Loving mother of Devon (Brian) Earnshaw, Peter (Bobbi), Cathy (Troy) and David. Cherished Nana of Colin (Kendra), Emily (Dave), Adam (Maggie), Courtney, Chelsey, Jake, Cameron, Luke, Natasha, Hudson and Delaney. Joan was born in Toronto and was the daughter of the late Vera and Ralph White. She was raised in Carleton Heights, Ottawa with her brothers David (Janet) and Graham (Jan). She is also survived by a sister-in-law Audrey Gill and brother-in-law Ken Workman. Joan endeared herself to her palliative care team and to her dear family and friends. Joan’s beloved family was with her as she peacefully passed away, where she wanted to be in our home.
