Joan Theresa Hardigan Turner Trussler - July 6 1933 - May 3 2013
Trussler, Joan Theresa Hartigan (Turner) 79, of Windsor, died peacefully at home May 3rd surrounded by her loving family. Born in Toronto, Joan was the eldest daughter of James and Elspeth Turner. She had many fun filled years on Redwood Avenue as big sister to Jim, Michael and Les.
A brilliant student, she graduated with honours from St Joseph's College School. Joan enjoyed a career working with public accounting firms in Halifax and Windsor and became friends with several of the most prominent CAs in Canada.
Joan had an active retirement and daily interactions with her children and grandchildren. Her home was always full; with family, food, fun, games and laughter. Joan's passions included her cats, birds at her backyard feeder, mystery novels, classic movies, game shows, music, dancing and card games. Trivia and word puzzles were her specialties.
One treasured memory was travelling with her daughter Charlotte to Ireland to connect with her Irish heritage.
She is survived by Gordon, her loving husband of 59 years, brothers Jim (Molly) (Scarborough) and Michael Turner (Windsor), her five children, Michael (Helena), James (Christina), Charlotte, Donald and Patricia (Patrick Howe), and 12 grandchildren, James, Diana, Joana, Kathryn, Paul, Marc, Ryan, Christian, Jessica, David, Jenny and Steven. She was predeceased by her parents and her brother Les.
