FISCHER, Joan Beverley (née Parkes) – Mrs. Joan Fischer passed away peacefully at the Guelph General Hospital on Monday, May 10, 2021 at the age of 88 years. Beloved wife of the late Ted Fischer (2013). Loving mother of Edward (Jennifer), Sandra Rogina (Lloyd) of Regina, SK, Robert, Joseph and the late Paul (1987), late Thomas and his son Blake (2003) and late Michael (2013). Cherished grandmother of many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Survived by her sister Hazel Kreller and by Joanne Welsh, Holly Wolfond, Debbie Watt and Jane Atkinson. Predeceased by her brothers Earl, Doug, Don and Gary Parkes and her parents Mel and Alice (née Ferguson) Parkes.
Joan will be fondly remembered for her exemplary zest for life and her big heart. She was funny and fierce, the life of many parties. Any many parties there were.
Her and Ted wisely created an inviting and intensely fun space at their home for family and friends to spend time. Over many summers we crowded their backyard for pool parties, BBQ's and cool treats. It was a family hub.
She was involved in many activities and jumped at any opportunity to participate in shows at the Senior's Centre, volunteered at the Legion, MS group, and got together regularly with many close friends.
She was loyal, fun and lived the adventure of life fully.
