Joanne Gervais October 21, 1964 - June 23, 2013 It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beautiful Joanne after a courageous battle with cancer. Beloved wife of Andrew Gillespie and mother of Ryan and William, she was surrounded by the love of family and friends throughout her life. She leaves behind her brothers Denny (Lori), Mike (Astrid), Patrick (Marjorie), nieces Vanessa (Adrien) and Gabrielle, nephews Christopher (Josi Anne), Mark, Michael and Zachary and many cousins, aunts and uncles that she loved so much. She will be dearly missed by her life-long friends Laura, Donna, Sarah, Deirdre, Karen, Gavin and so many more.
Our eternal gratitude goes out to the nurses and staff on the 17th floor of the Montreal General Hospital and the West Island Palliative Care Residence. And a very special thanks to TC Dellar who helped make our last days and hours with Joanne so peaceful. In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation to the West Island Palliative Care Residence or Canadian Cancer Society.
