Obituary of Joan Robinson

With great sadness, we announce the passing of Joan on Monday, April 15, 2024 at the age of 88 years. Treasured mom and forever best friend of Debbie Storey (Chuck) and the late Laurie Williamson (Brian). Proud Gramma “Nan” of Jason Robinson (Samm), Jennifer Wiwchar, Sarah Guzzo (Frank) and their three boys. Lifelong friend and companion of Frank Darou who loved her completely and took very good care of her. Daughter of the late Herman and Leta Darby. Sister of Vern Darby (late Doris), Darlene Bye (late Roy) and Bonnie Leston (Tom). A special mention to Joan’s only great granddaughter, Shayna who gave her a new lease on life.


Joan enjoyed gardening and tending to her many indoor plants. She still loved and looked forward to a visit at Chuck and Debbie’s camp at Trout Lake. Joan always put others before herself. Her kindness and generosity will be missed.


To honour Joan’s wishes, no services will be held. Memorial donations to the SAH Foundation or St. Vincent Place would be appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Rd, 705-945-7758).
