EPSTEIN, Joan Betty Epstein Obituary | Print |

EPSTEIN, Joan Betty -

Epstein_JoanPassed away at her home in Burlington, Ontario on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 at 90 years of age.

Beloved wife of the late H. Maxwell Epstein.

Loved mother of Michael Epstein (Gina) and Stephen Epstein. Cherished grandmother of Jennifer Mannen (David), Megan and Jordan.

Joan lived through the WWII nightly bombing raids in London. Wanting to contribute to the war effort she mis-stated her age so she could become a nurse to the troops returning from the Dunkirk disaster. It was in that role that she enjoyed meeting the Queen Mother.

It was during this time that Joan met her future husband Max who was a major stationed at Canadian Military Headquarters. Joan was a voracious reader, avid golfer until recently, and a crack duplicate bridge player. She loved art, music and theater and was a good amateur painter. Always extremely well informed and up to date on world and current affairs, no discussion was out of bounds and all enjoyed her banter and keen sense of humour.

Joan approached the challenges of this past year with her usual feistiness and sense of dignity. She was a devoted parent and grandparent -- after her boys were in high school, Joan earned a Bachelor of Social work and entered the workforce first at the Hamilton General, and later at the McMaster med centre with the department of surgery.

Joan was always a compassionate and caring listener. She enjoyed a fulfilling and rewarding career and authored a chapter in a textbook on palliative care. Joan volunteered at the Carpenter’s Hospice until her late eighties.

Private Cremation has taken place. Arrangements out of Burlington.

For those who wish, donations in memory of Joan to The Heart and Stroke Foundation would be sincerely appreciated by the family.

Although Olga never had pets growing up, she grew to adore the Di Giantomasso dogs and sneak them food when no one was watching.

Family dinners will never be the same without Olga’s fondness for storytelling and reminiscing about life in Introdacqua, Italy. Olga was a very social person, who loved her music and bingo. She had a talent for needlework, knitting and crocheting.

She suffered through many illnesses, yet her faith never wavered and she was comforted through prayer. We will miss her greatly but we hated to see her suffer and know that now she is in a better place. Our memories of her will never fade and she will be in our hearts forever.

We are grateful to the staff of the Wellington Nursing Home for all their care in making Olga’s last few months comfortable and treating her with compassion and dignity.
