MENZIES, Joan Patricia

Menzies: Joan Patricia. Joan Patricia Menzies started on her final journey September 10, 2019 at 90 years of age. Her husband, Richard, went before her in May to wait for his wife to join him,( as was common in the early days in the military).

Joan was born on March 25, 1929, in Los Angeles, California; the youngest of 5 children. She married her soul mate, Richard, had three daughters and together for 70+ years they enjoyed a long and wonderful life of family, fun, music, adventure and travel. She was strong in her faith in God and her gentle spirit was at peace, ready to spend the rest of eternity with Richard and her Saviour, Jesus. She has left us a legacy of love; courage to face life looking for the “silver lining in every cloud”; and strength to stand firm for what matters. She taught us what is really important in life - to love unconditionally and to support and care for family and friends in our lives.

Joan was predeceased by her loving husband, Richard; her infant grandson,
Richard; her sisters, Kathleen and Mary; her brother, Geoff. She leaves behind her older sister, Bonny; her 3 daughters, 7 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and 9 great-great grandchildren – (too numerous to mention each by name but you know who you are!); many nephews, nieces, and cousins.

In Proverbs 31: 28 it reads: “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” We do and so did Dad!

A memorial service will be held October 12, 2019 at Peachland Baptist Church at 1:30 PM , with reception to follow at Peachland Recreation Centre.

    Dear Gail, Lynn and Leslie
    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Mom Joan. She is now again with her beloved Richard. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.I enjoyed getting to know you all through your parents, they were so proud of their family and I was always amazed how your Mom remembered every grandchild, great grandchild and great-great grandchild , and when and where they were born. She spoke very fondly of all of you and her memories of your lives. I will miss her dearly. My heartfelt condolences to all of you.
    With much love, Shelley Kothlow
