Joan Mary (Peerless) Scott
January 3, 1926 – November 6, 2013
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our loving mother and Grandmother Joan Scott on Nov. 6th, 2013 in Port Alberni. Joan grew up in Saltair, the daughter of Mary and Ern Peerless, and lived and raised her family in Port Alberni. Joan was predeceased by loving husband Bill and daughter-in-law Leeanne. Survived by her son Dale (Kathleen) and daughter Lori (Wade). Her cherished grandchildren Lynelle, Laurissa, Miranda, Aileen, and step grandchildren Jericho and Allen. Brothers Jim Peerless, Ed (Kay) Peerless, sister May Stubbington (now recently deceased) , sister in laws Dorothy Glenn and Dot Scott, and many nieces and nephews.
Joan loved to knit and was well known for her dish cloth she so generously donated. She also loved to bake cookies and buns for all her grandchildren. She was a very inspiring woman to all who knew her. With all her challenges in her later years, her motto was “You’d be amazed what you can do when you have to”.
A Memorial Tea was well attended at the Cherry Creek Hall December 12th. For those who wish, donations may be offered to the Ty Watson House, 2649 2nd Ave, Port Alberni, V9Y1Z8
