September 10, 1937 - February 17, 2018
Mrs. Joan Mosco of High River, Alberta passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, at the High River Hospital at the age of 80 years. Joan was predeceased by her parents, Robert and Ivy Hamilton and her sisters Keitha and Barbara. Joan is survived by Fred, her loving husband of 60 years and her seven children, Lorelei (Tom), Julie, Victoria (Kerry), Christopher, Andrew, Nancy and Timothy (Angela), 15 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Joan married Fred October 2, 1957 at St. Theresa’s in Ottawa, Ontario. After many years of military postings they settled in Calgary, AB. Joan worked several office assistant jobs while living there, her final job with Meals on Wheels. Before she retired they moved to the Hamlet of Cayley and from there to their final home in High River. Joan enjoyed many hours with family and friends having coffee and treats at Tim Horton’s and thoroughly enjoyed her Tuesday Bingos and Monday and Thursday card groups. She was an avid knitter and crocheter, countless baby sweaters, bonnets & booties, hats, scarves, mitts, slippers, dishcloths and afghans have been gifted to friends and family. Gardening was another source of pleasure for her, she grew beautiful flowers and the fresh veggies from the garden were a treat at meal time. Her grandkids happily picked raspberries to be enjoyed out of hand and in her exceptional jam! Joan’s greatest joy was time spent with family and every birthday, Christmas and special occasion was acknowledged with a card, she never forgot – that was a lot of cards throughout the years! To all the family and friends that gave their love and support to us during this difficult time, thank you. Your kindness was a great comfort. Mom was blessed to have so many who loved her and your kind words and visits brightened her days. A special thank you to Dr. Brian Jensen and the 3rd floor staff for their great care and compassion. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the High River District Health Care Foundation would be greatly appreciated. A time of visitation was held on Friday, February 23rd from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Lyle Reeves Funerals (115 8th Ave. SE, High River).
