MCFATER, Joan Madeline (Banton) - Passed away peacefully at her home in Scarborough on July 31, 2020.
Joan, born in Toronto Ontario on October 6, 1932 to her parents George and Kathleen, grew up in the Lawrence Park neighbourhood alongside her brothers and sisters Victor (Shirley), Patricia (Bernie), George (Patricia) and Sheila (Keith) with whom she considered her best friends.
Married on February 20, 1954, Joan is predeceased by the love of her life Neil (Hap) McFater. Joan and Hap were known for their love of one another and their incredible sense of humour.
Joan was the loving mother of 4, Jim (Sandy), Nancy (Chris), John (Marina) and Bob (Christine).
Joan went to Centennial College in her 50’s and started a career at WSIB as a trainer where she used her sunny disposition and desire to help others to train people for the workforce.
Nanny will be deeply missed by her 12 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren who she joyfully dedicated the latter part of her life to.
At Joan’s request a private family internment will take place. Due to the pandemic situation a celebration of life will take place at a later date to be determined. Please follow the family’s social media for future updates.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to The Toronto Humane Society in Joan’s name.
