Croft; Joan Katherine(nee Flewelling)
Peacefully, with her children by her side, passed at Hanover and District Hospital on Saturday, July 15, 2023, of Flesherton in her 91st year. She is reunited with her late husband "Bob" Robert Harold(2006). Loving mother of Wayne(Janice) of Flesherton and Barbara(Bob) Morrow of Clifford. Cherished grandmother of Ryne, Brianne(Norm), Bradley(Haley) and Brandon. Proud great grandmother of James, Kylie, Colton and Olivia. Predeceased by all of her brothers and sisters.
Joan was born April 7, 1933 in Windsor to Lorne and Katherine Flewelling. She remained in Windsor until her parents purchased a farm in Varney and convinced her to join in 1956. It was in Grey County she met and married the love of her life, Bob, in 1959 at the Durham United Church. When Joan and Bob started their family in Flesherton, they decided that Bob working in the city needed to change. Together they started Croft Sand and Gravel. Bob worked hard while Joan raised the children. Seeing a need in Flesherton for childcare, Joan started a home daycare, and thrived, helping raise many children in the village.
Joan enjoyed Bingo and socializing. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Windsor Chapter and a life member of Grey Chapter #170. Thank you to Dr. Brian Power for all of his care over the past several years, and to the staff at Rockwood Terrace for the amazing care Joan received and the support provided to her family during this time.
Cremation has taken place and Joan will be laid to rest with her husband at the Flesherton Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be greatly appreciated. Online donations and condolences at www.fawcettfuneralhome.ca
