Joan Lott

Joan Lott died peacefully 8 April 2012 at Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island. Born 1922 in Marshall, Saskatchewan, youngest child of Horace and Marjorie Thurlow; predeceased by husband David 1988 and brother P/O Jack 1943, Joan is survived by sister Joyce, daughters Patricia Page and Beth Birtwistle (Ray), sons Mark and Bruce (Christine), grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Joan and David settled in Duncan, but when the opportunity of a lifetime arose to live in East Africa, they quickly packed up the family and moved. This proved to be the highlight of Joan’s life, living a dream amongst the greatest wildlife and remaining natural wonders of our world. Upon returning the Canada, they chose to live on Salt Spring Island where they had spent many memorable times previously. Joan and Dave returned to Africa for another stretch, living in Ghana. A 40-plus year member of the Salt Spring Trail and Nature Club, Joan served on the executive for many years. She reveled in the natural world, hiking the West Coast Trail at 60, and buying a kayak at 70. No service at Joan’s request; in lieu of flowers, please donate to the Canadian Red Cross or a conservation charity of your choice. The family wishes to express their thanks to Dr. Ryan and the kind staff of Lady Minto for the care Joan received

over the past few years.
