Joan (Fosty) Rogers

September 13, 1938 — June 6, 2024

This world lost one of the truly great Mom's last Thursday. On June 6th, in the company of Christine & Vincent, and after visits from Ken & Janet + her beautiful grandkids: Gareth, Maeve, Bennett & Olive; Joan passed away peacefully and painlessly to join her partner Don on their next adventure.

Mom was cremated Saturday in the same small private family ritual she devised to celebrate and send off her parents Matt & Anne. A proper celebration of her life will be organized shortly where family and friends can share her stories.

It's easy to imagine another world now, where Mom & Dad are together again - likely at a backyard party with their brothers Ed + Bob & Betty and Bill + Allan & Erma. Of course all their collective friends and Grandma & Grandpa are raising glasses with them as well. We miss them dearly. 

If you wish to make a donation in her honour, please consider the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook - who's caring and medicines gave her a miraculous, pain free year after her initial diagnosis; or Toronto Animal Services - who provided her with countless hours of cat-lap time from Trump (neé Patsy), Frankie, Bongo & Bill the Man over the past 50 years.
