It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Joan Margaret Mathers (nee Gibb) on February 17, 2020 in Almonte, Ontario. She was the beloved wife of Marven for 58 years, dear mother of Wendy (Keith) and Heather (Phil) and loving grandmother to Serena, Logan, Sarah and Olivia. Much loved sister of Barbara (Art), John (Maureen) and predeceased by her sister Janet (Jack). A loving aunt to many nieces and nephews and their families.
Joan trained as a nurse at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Montreal and worked for many years at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). She shared her caring and compassion with not only her family and friends but many patients over the years. Joan loved the company of family and friends, travel, a drop of rum, and coffee above all things. She will be greatly missed.

To Mr. Mathers, Heather and Wendy and families,
Mrs. Mathers was like a second mom to me when we were kids...I am so very sorry to hear of her passing. She was always so kind and generous to me. Her hardworking nature was a constant inspiration to me and her sweet light will forever glow in your hearts as it will in mine.
Sending all my love,
Leigh xoxo

Our sympathy to Buster and the family. Joan was such a kind person. She had a beautiful smile and a soft voice. I remember her and Buster celebrating special occasions with my parents Marg and Harold Englehart. We were also fortunate to celebrate her 80 th birthday. Gwen and Ian Englehart

I was fortunate to have known Joan as a student nurse, a class behind. She radiated kindness and a caring attitude that I have recalled over the years. Her name has come up when we the class of 62 have a reunion and always with fondness. My condolences to Marvin and family.

P.S. We called her Gibby.

Dear Buster and family, although I only met Joan a few times she was an absolute delight each and every time. I am so sad that my friend and mentor has lost his life partner. My deepest condolences go out to you all. Do your best to stay strong for one another.
