It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Joan Voigt, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother. Joan passed away on March 16, 2023, after a brief stay at Lions Gate Hospital. Joan was born on December 15, 1937 in Toronto, Ontario and was the adored only child of Bridget and William Beattie.
She grew up in Toronto where she met the love of her life, Carl, on a tennis court. It was a match made in heaven. They went on to get married and have five children living in Toronto, California and ultimately West Vancouver. Joan and Carl celebrated 60 years of marriage last year. Joan is survived by her adoring husband, Carl as well as her three children, Deb (Darrell), Laura (Brad), and Greg (Michelle). Joan was preceded in death by her children Carolyn (1987) and Bradley (1970).
Joan's greatest joy in life was spending time with her 12 grandchildren (Curtis, Carly, and Kaitlin Hetland; Connor, Clayton, Jacob, Quade, Ally, and Caleb Lycan; Donavan, Petra, and RB Voigt) who brought endless laughter and delight into her world.
Joan had an outgoing personality and she loved spending time with friends. She especially enjoyed a good game of bridge.
Joan will be deeply missed by her family and friends, who will remember her outgoing nature, her infectious smile, and her unwavering devotion to those she loved. Her legacy will live on through the countless lives she touched and the memories she created.
Rest in peace, Joan Voigt.
