Lila Joan Corner

September 28, 1929 — March 30, 2022

CORNER, Lila Joan

Peacefully with her children by her side, Joan passed away on March 30, 2022 at Lakeridge Health, Oshawa at the age of 92.  Beloved wife of the late Dr. Albert H. Corner.  Loving mother and mother-in-law to Margaret Corner and Raymond Rutitis, Elizabeth Corner and Peter Hanlon and Richard Corner.  Predeceased by her infant son, Robert Corner; her parents, Wesley and Lila Savage of Navan, Ontario; her sister, Barbara Alexander (Ottawa) and her brother Dr. Grant Savage (Waterville, Maine).  Loving grandmother of Richard Rutitis, Robert Rutitis (Kelly), Meghan Rutitis, Mark Hanlon and Ian Hanlon and great grandmother of Chloe Rutitis.

She will be sadly missed by her family and friends.  The family would like to thank all the caregivers who looked after Joan in her final years, especially Maria, Anne, Nancy and Cindy.

Joan grew up in Navan, Ontario outside of Ottawa.  After graduating from high school, she attended Teacher’s College and taught primary school at Lady Evelyn Public School in Ottawa for a short period of time.  When Joan wasn’t working in her garden, reading a book, making jams and pickles, quilting, playing bridge or curling, Joan was volunteering.  She taught Sunday school, helped out as a Brownie leader, worked in the Library at Harmer House, cooked weekly meals for the senior citizens’ club, sewed numerous hats for chemo patients and knit items for her local church bazaar.  As a result of her service to her community, Joan was awarded the Governor General’s Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers in 2016.

A private family service and burial will be held later in the spring.  In lieu of flowers, if so desired, donations in Joan’s memory would be appreciated to the charity of your choice.  Arrangements entrusted to Tubman Funeral Homes, Garden Chapel, Nepean, Ontario.  613-726-0292
