Joan Margaret Broski, a resident of Miramichi Lodge, Pembroke, Ontario, passed away at dawn on Sunday April 18, 2021 in her 92nd year after a sad and courageous struggle with Dementia, a disease aptly described as “the long good-bye”
The support provided by Joan, an army wife, was a major reason why her husband, Lieutenant Colonel Stanley Broski (retired) and her son Dr. Anthony Broski attained successful careers in their professions. Notwithstanding her fear of flying, Joan travelled to Europe on several occasions to join her husband. She was very adroit in masking her apprehensions with her sense of humour. Her favorite posting was New York. Her lifelong interest in fine clothing was a factor in how quickly she learned to navigate to Macys and Bloomingdales. She is probably now using her skills to put together her ensemble of celestial raiment.
Joan was predeceased in death by her parents, Nelly and Ernie Hammond, brothers Frank, Mickey (Michael) and Jack (John) and sisters Ethyl and Eileen.
Joan is survived by her husband Stanley; son Anthony; daughter-in-law Laurel and granddaughter, Erin
A Funeral Mass at St. Columbkille’s Cathedral will be held when it is safe to do so and will be announced, followed by interment in Beechwood National Military Cemetery, Ottawa.
In memory of Joan donations to the Dementia Society Ottawa Renfrew County or Miramichi Lodge would be appreciated by the family.
Funeral Arrangements entrusted to the Murphy Funeral Home Pembroke.
