In loving memory ~
January 9th, 2023 at the age of almost 70 years, I knocked on Heaven's Gate, and got accepted. The excellent care at the Hospice in Campbell River helped me to simply pass into a calm eternity. All my pain and grief were over.
I made many friends through the years living in Black Creek. With my dogs, Holly, Oscar, and my last Tika, we met so many friends on Saratoga Beach and surrounding trails in Black Creek on our walks. We always found stories to share or treats. I thank Glenn and Barb at Pacific Playgrounds Ocean Side Resort for taking care of Tika.
For several years I worked at the Elk Falls Pulp Mill in Campbell River. Then when it decided to close, like others, I went to work at other places. We all have so many stories to share.
Life is too short to worry about what others say or think about me.
Just enjoy life, have fun, and give others something to talk about - Joni
Celebration of Life to be Announced.
