Joseph Michael Myshrall
October 20, 1940
– December 17, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Joseph Michael
Myshrall announces the passing of their beloved father and grandfather
at the age of 79. Joe was predeceased by the love of his life, his
wife of 57 years, Katharine (Dawn) Myshrall, in May of
After getting his start as a young man in the grocery
business as produce manager at Sobeys in Fredericton, Joe soon flexed
his own entrepreneurial muscles, establishing the independent grocery
store and lunch counter, The National Meat Market on Queen Street in
the 1970s. From there he would go on to run two other popular
Fredericton mainstay eateries, Joe’s Restaurant and the
Lunch Bucket, where Joe could be found behind the grill with a spatula
and a grin, filling orders for his patrons personally.
In his retirement years, Joe enjoyed cheering on his
favourite team the Boston Red Sox with an Alpine in hand, working in
his well-manicured garden, or giving his wife, Dawn, a run for her
money in a competitive round of Scrabble.
Joe is survived by his four children, Barbara (Paul) Parker,
Richie (Beatrice) Myshrall, Michael (Bonnie) Myshrall and Shelley
Williamson, and granddaughters Shelby Parker and Katie Myshrall, who
loved their father and Grampie dearly.
The Myshrall family would like to extend their thanks to the
staff and volunteers at Pine Grove Nursing Home, where Joe spent his
final days under their compassionate care. Staff and visitors there
will miss his big smile and quiet sense of humour. Joe is resting at
Bishop’s Funeral Home, where, at the request of the family,
there will be no visitation. A small celebration of Joe’s
life will be held at a later date.
wish to make a donation in Joe’s memory may do so to the
Alzheimer Society or to a charity of their choice.
