Joan Henderson

Joan Allison Henderson was 3 weeks from her 96th birthday, born December 8, 1923 in Stonewall, Manitoba. She spent her entire life either in or within 5 miles of Stonewall - a rare occurrence in today's world. She is predeceased by many family members, notable, her husband, Jock Henderson and her parents, Joe and Agnes Saundry. She is survived by her son, Jim (Liz) and her daughter, Nancy (Jim), her granddaughters Keri (Glen) and Pam (Greg) and great grandchildren Jaeden and Galen, Abigail and Evan and her three sisters, Margaret, Doris and Darlene. Joan's talents run as long as her life. As a farmer's wife, she grew a large annual garden of flowers, fruit and vegetables; she canned, pickled or made jam; she baked delicious treats and made bread. Joan was a choir leader, 4-H leader, community and church volunteer, and baseball coach. In her spare time, she sewed her own clothes and Nancy's. In later years she did ceramics, paper tole, quilted and knitted away many a day! She was always involved with sports at a young age, from tennis and baseball (she was very proud of the fact she played without a glove!) to becoming an avid curler for many years. Joan's celebration of life will be held Saturday, November 23 at 1:00 at MacKenzie Funeral Home, 433 Main Street, Stonewall, Manitoba. A reception will be held immediately following the service at MacKenzie Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Stonewall Hospital, 539 3 Ave. South, Stonewall, Manitoba R0C 2Z0.
