Joan Muriel Nicholson

May 23, 1930 – January 10, 2017

Joan passed peacefully at her Greenwoods home in the company of her loving caregivers Elizabeth, Kathy and Greenwoods staff.

Joan was predeceased by her husband Colin Philip Nicholson on April 20,1997. Joan was born Joan Pinkney in Montreal and was raised by her adopted parents Stanley and Lillian Aird. She married Colin in Rosemount Montreal on May 21,1960. She and Colin enjoyed their life in their Saltspring home on Kings Lane with their dog, cat, and garden, and kept busy with their many weaving projects.

Joan enjoyed going to Ganges in her Honourable Lady to volunteer at the SSI Library on Fridays, to sing with Saltspring Singers, meet with her friends for coffee, and to enjoy her Golden Island dinners.

She will be missed by Greenwoods staff, Elizabeth, Tony, Betty, Carol and Alan. She has gone to join her beloved Colin and their dog.

Special thanks to her Doctors, Nurses, Greenwoods, her kind and watchful Kings Lane neighbours, and especially Elizabeth Lee, her devoted companion for 6 years.

A Memorial will be held for her at All Saints by the Sea on Saturday Jan 28, 2017 at 2pm followed by refreshments. Please join us.
