Joanne Kaye Hardy
With heavy hearts, we share the passing of our beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend Joanne. The youngest of five children, Joanne was born to Bob and Doris Allan of Battleford in 1964. She was predeceased by her father Robert “Bob” Allan. She is survived by her loving husband Spence, sons Shane (Ashley) and Benjamin, mother Doris Allan, sisters Janice (Doug Degenstein) and Karen Allan, and brothers Doug (Michele) and Brian (Bonny) Allan, and many nieces and nephews. Joanne attended schools in Battleford and North Battleford before attending the University of Saskatchewan. Saskatoon became her new home after marrying Spence in 1985. Her family life began soon after, with her son Shane being born, and later her son Benjamin. Joanne loved the outdoors and spent many summers camping at the Battlefords Provincial Park, and later at the family cabin at Chitek Lake. Entertaining family and friends on the deck at the lake was her passion. Never would anyone go hungry on her watch. While never wanting to be the center of attention, Joanne’s friendliness and compassion naturally drew people to her and left a lasting impression on many. Always a mother, she made sure everyone around her was always cared for and happy. She was also a dedicated employee. Starting at Beaver Lumber for a number of years, she also worked at Desticon Transportation, and most recently Wheatland Regional Library. Her fellow employees were also her friends. More recently, Joanne developed a love for travelling. From the Caribbean to Hawaii, Paris to Nova Scotia, she loved to experience new sights, sounds, cultures, and food. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (1910 McIntyre St., Regina, SK, S4P 2R3). A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
