It is with profound sadness that we announce the loss of our mother, Joan Flynn, our light and our rock. Beloved wife of the late John Flynn, cherished mother of Peter, Catherine and Patricia (Doug), and infinitely proud Nana to Alejandra. Joan passed away peacefully at the age of 89 with her family by her side. Her smile, generosity, humour, and warmth will be forever missed. May she rest in peace. Special thanks to the staff at Georgian Manor in Penetanguishene, and Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie, for their kindness, care and compassion. In Joan's memory, donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Royal Victoria Hospital Foundation or he Alzheimer's Society of Canada.
