Passed away peacefully, on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 in her 92nd year. Beloved wife of the late Richard Walling. Cherished mother of Donna Jean, Anne Marie (Steve Moore) and David (Camille.) Adored grandmother of Capriale. Beloved daughter of the late Jean and Howard McInnis. Fond Aunt to her nieces and nephews, Joan was a wise and a fun-loving friend to all ages.

Born in Charlottetown, Joan moved to Saint John as a baby, returned to her Island home of Charlottetown as a girl, graduated from Mount Saint Vincent, then lived and worked in her mother's hometown, Halifax where she met her husband, Dick. They married in the Yukon, and lived in the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Prince Edward Island before retiring in Ottawa. Born without vital signs, surviving sepsis three times, Joan was a survivor. She loved flowers, all kinds, but two of her favourites were, the daisy and the rose. Like a daisy she was down to earth and pretty, but needed the careful cultivation of a rose to thrive. A lifelong Catholic, the local parish and her faith were constant supports through her many moves. A maritimer/Prince Edward Islander with a smile and laugh that lit up a room, she was interested in everyone. Joan never met a stranger, and to the end of her life, drew out people with her genuine charm.

Joan loved life. To honour her, step outside. Feel the sun on your skin and the breeze, "that heavenly breeze" in your hair. Have a bite of chocolate or some ice cream, dance to your favourite music, or call a friend and enjoy the day. Joan's family wishes to thank the staff of the Glebe Centre for such excellent, loving care especially during the challenge of the pandemic.

Due to Covid-19, a Mass for the family will be held. An expression of sympathy may be made to the Shepherds of Good Hope or the charity of your choice.
