ROSCOE, Joan Marion (nee Pipe) To her dying day, Joan was described by family, friends, acquaintances and caregivers, as one of a kind. Joan was determined, funny, kind and loved by many. As the youngest of eight, she learnt how to survive and thrive. Growing up in Haileybury gave her special powers to tough the elements. Joan became a registered nurse and practiced at St. Mike's in Toronto and then in Winnipeg where she met the love of her life, Stan Roscoe. Settling in Ancaster, they raised three children (Peter, Janet and Elizabeth). They created an active and full life together with fantastic neighbors which included a long lasting bridge club of over 50 years. They became avid skiers, golfers and curlers. Joan and Stan were fixtures at Hamilton Golf and Country Club. Joan had two holes in one and reminded many of her golf prowess over the years. Joan welcomed her growing family with the addition of daughter-in-law, Judy (pre-deceased) and son in-law's Thom and Dave. She was known as Nanna to her six grandchildren and her five great grandchildren. She spoiled each and every one, loved being with them and will be fondly remembered for many family traditions and her love of chocolate. For a life well lived, we wish her Godspeed to meet her family and Stan. She will be deeply missed by all of her friends and family. Special thanks to Willowgrove long term care facility for their care of Joan and to Betty for her kindness and friendship shown to Joan in her last years of her life. If desired, a remembrance donation may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. A family burial will be held at White Chapel Cemetery.
