Joanna Gail (Munn) Tonet
The family of Joanna Munn Tonet sadly announce her passing in Calgary Alberta, on March 3, 2019.
Joanna "Jo" was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia. After obtaining her nursing degree at Grace Maternity Hospital in Halifax, she worked in Obstetrics in Halifax and then Sydney where she married and raised her three daughters of whom she was extremely proud. In those years she was always happiest when she had a house full of children and hosting many friends and tennis pals in the rec room and swimming pool on Cromarty St.
Joanna is survived by her three daughters Natalie (Sergei), Alison (Tony), and Cynthia; sister and brother-in-law Gwen and Gary Bruce; her beloved grandchildren whom she adored; Ben, Alison, Marcus and Brandon; along with her many loving nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father Rev. Milton Munn, her mother Irene Munn and her sister Judith Munn Thorne.
While Jo left Sydney in the nineties, living in Sussex, Halifax, Fredericton, and Calgary, her heart never left her beloved Cape Breton. May her spirit rest forever there in peace and joy.
Special thank you to the team at the Providence Care Centre in Calgary for their outstanding care and compassion over the past 3 years. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Joanna’s memory to the charity of one’s choice. A small family service will be held back east in the warmer months.
