MORROW, Joan Gertrude (nee Ludford) -

Cherished mother of Pam Cook (Terry) and Tom Morrow (Dianne). Devoted grandmother of Katie (Matt), Tom (Shayna), Bob (Heather) and Mike (Leah.) Adored great-grandmother of Cali, Gabriel, Evie and Alana. Dear sister of Betty Denton, Audrey MacDonald, late Alan Ludford (Frances) and Pat Taylor. Joan will also be dearly missed by the extended Morrow and Ludford families, as well as many nieces and nephews and numerous friends. Joan was a wonderful cook and amazing baker of pies, cookies and gingerbread houses! There were always treats for her grandchildren and other visitors. She loved to read, knit and work on her extensive miniature collection, and was a member of Arts and Letters and a Miniatures group. Joan was also a member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church for many years and participated in community service activities such as Meals on Wheels.

Condolences to Pam and Tom and their families. It's a long time since we all lived on Lakeside Ave. I wanted to pass on my thanks to both your mother and father for visiting my mother in the hospital for many years after we had left Lakeside Ave. My mother always looked forward to the Christmas card which kept her up to date with your families. My sisters and I always appreciated that they stayed in touch. Sorry for your loss.

Thank you so much, Dan. Lakeside Ave. was a great place to grow up, and I have many fond memories of our friends and neighbors. My parents lived there until 8 years ago, when it was time to move them into a nursing home. Through the years, I brought my two kids back just about every summer, and that last summer my daughter and granddaughter (Mom and Dad's first grandchild) went back with me to help Mom and Dad make that major transition in their lives. My Mom always enjoyed her visits with your Mom and considered her to be a close friend. Please give my best wishes to your family and a special hi to Susan. Pam Cook

Joan and Lyle were neighbours for many years on Lakeside Avenue. I used to envy their lovely walks together each evening and we were able to chat about the neighbourhood and keep up to date. When Joan moved away, I remember the garage sale, where I purchased several of her sewing items, which I'm still using to date Particularly, there is a round plastic container of threads and I think of her every time I look for a particular colour. I don't think I'll ever run out!! The street wasn't the same once they both left. And since then, it's been decimated by developers who have erected huge homes. We left three years ago, and I have to admit, I don't miss it much since it changed so drastically. My heart goes out to your family on the loss of a lovely lady.

Thank you so much for your kind words. My Mom would love that you have some of her sewing items! She loved to sew and knit! I have been back to Lakeside a couple of times, and it is surely a very different place. It was certainly a great neighborhood to grow up in, and I'm glad that my children got to spend time there most summers through the years as well. I hope by next summer, we will be able to have a celebration of Mom's life. It was hard not being able to travel at this time and say goodbye the way we'd like to. Thank you for being great neighbors. I know my parents enjoyed your friendship. Pam Cook
