Joan Ada Benedict Theall May 28, 1928 to December 23, 2013

Predeceased by her husband Dr. Donald Theall and married for 58 years, Joan passed away peacefully in her home on December 23, 2013 at the age of 85.

Mother to their six children: Thomas, Margaret, John, Harold, Lawrence, and Michael. Grandmother to Stephen, William and Katie and daughter-in-law Janet.

Special thanks to Thomas, the eldest son, who moved to Peterborough and committed 7 years of his life to care for his mother and father every day in their last years of life and to fulfil the wishes of mom to die in her home.

Mom and Dad will be dearly missed. They were the greatest love story of them all... Interment was a "family only" gathering.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
