She is survived by her brother Arden (Irene) Body, daughters Holly Norman (Mike Nelms), Alana (Sheldon) Ansell and son David Lytle. She will be missed by her seven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, one nephew, one niece and numerous cousins. Joan was born in Kerrobert, SK and was raised between the farm and ranch in the Luseland/Major areas. She left home to pursue her dream of becoming a secretary and graduated from Business College in 1953. She met and married Harold Elwood Norman and had four children with him. She worked for many years at Canadian Linen Supply then at Intercontinental Packers in Saskatoon. She then moved to Prince Albert where she worked at the Women's Society and eventually became a guard at Pine Grove Jail. She met and married Archie Starr and moved to Belcarres, SK to be with him in 1977. They separated and she moved back to Prince Albert where she resumed her position as a guard. She retired in 1990 and moved back to the ranch. After spending several years at the ranch she moved into the town of Major, SK where she resided until 2007. She then moved to Viscount to spend her remaining years closer to her daughter. She was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2009 but was still able to live a healthy, happy life in her own residence until she passed away. She will be sadly missed but happily remembered by the many friends she has met throughout the years. All that knew her loved her and felt blessed to be part of her life. We love you and miss you Auntie Bud! Kindersley Funeral Home and Crematorium will be looking after the funeral arrangements. The funeral will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in Major, SK with a luncheon following at the OK Corral in Major, SK. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Cancer Society in her honor.
