There are no words to express the emptiness felt with the passing of Joan Standen nee Kennedy, our beloved wife, mother, grandma, great grandma and friend. Joan passed away November 14, 2021 at 10 pm in Stratford General Hospital surrounded by the everlasting love of her family.
Joan, born 1937 in Kitchener Ontario, was the daughter of the late Stanley and Dorothy Kennedy. She leaves behind her loving husband of 64 years, Lorne, and her children and grandchildren: Sherri (Ed) Allie (Justin) Jeff (Amy); Teresa (Dale) Chad (Amanda) Josh (Zuira); Gary (Francine) Kayla (Ken) Stephanie (Chris); Carol Anne (Earl) Aaron Jordan, and 10 great grandchildren.
Joan also leaves behind her best friend and sister Nancy and late Rod Jones and their children Carrie (John), Jeff (LeeAnn), Jay (Melanie) and their families. She is also leaving behind extended family members and friends too numerous to name that she cherished dearly.
Thank you for the support from extended family, friends and neighbours throughout this difficult time. Thank you to the LHIN and Stratford General Hospital staff.
