Obituary

Joan Patricia Kowalchuk 

May 13, 1934 – August 29, 2021

It is with deep sorrow and regret that the family announces the passing of Joan Kowalchuk at the age of 87 on Sunday, August 29, 2021.

Joan is survived by her son Brian (Karen); daughter Debi and a very proud grandma to Jordan, Jodene, Kayla, Kelsey, McKenzie as well as her two great-grandsons.

Joan was predeceased by her loving husband Robert, as well as her 12 brothers and sisters.

Mom was born on May 13, 1934, in Selkirk, Manitoba. In October of 1955, she married Robert Kowalchuk. 

Joan was devoted to her family; she loved baking and cooking, no one would go away hungry from her table. It was known for people to leave with a care package full of her cookies and other homemade delicious treats after one of her home cooked meals. Her dedication to her family is a memory that all her friends and relatives will cherish. Her grandchildren were the light of her life. 

Cremation has taken place. The interment took place on September 3, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at the Selkirk Lutheran Cemetery.

The family would like to thank the caregivers at the Betel Home and Gilbart Funeral Home in Selkirk as well as everyone who reached out to her and helped her on her journey.
