Passed away peacefully on Sunday September 19th, 2021 at the age of 86. She will be dearly loved and forever missed by her children; Robert McKee, Linda McKee(Kinloch), Sandra McKittrick (Ken); grandchildren Kristie, Connor, Nicole, Ryan, Brad and Eric; great-granddaughter Raine; and all her step-children and step-grandchildren of the Walsh family. Beloved wife of the late Donald Francis McKee, and predeceased by her eldest son William(Bill) Mckee(Anna). Also predeceased by loving husband Leo Walsh. Joan worked as a secretary when she met our Dad. Upon becoming a Mom, she stayed home devoting all her time and love to her family, raising four children. Mom was a huge sports fan, although hockey was her favourite. It’s the only time she would ever cut a phone call short saying “The games on! Can I call you back?” It was such a privilege to have her as our Mom. She had an enormous heart and was always there with words of encouragement. She never missed a chance to watch her children and grandchildren shine no matter what it was. Always encouraging us to go after our dreams. She was immensely proud of her family, and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. She will forever hold a special place in our hearts that no one we ever fill. Friends and Family are invited to Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St, Dundas on Thursday, September 23 from 6 until 9p.m. A Funeral Mass will take place at St. Augustine’s Church, 58 Sydenham St, Dundas, on Friday, September 24, at 10:00a.m.
I am very sorry to hear of Joan’s passing. I always enjoyed speaking with her at various Walsh family events. She was keenly interested in what everyone was doing, with genuine caring and concern. A great loss to the families – McKee and Walsh. May she rest in peace.
With prayers and love to Robert, Linda, Sandra, and their families during this
difficult time. Loved the picture you chose of your Mom – that’s how I
remember her, always smiling, good natured, and full of zest for life.
I am so glad I had an opportunity to get to know your Mom, when we both
lived on Weir’s Lane.
May your family and friends be a great strength and support for you all.
Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. She was an amazing mother. We will miss her dearly.
Cindy & Rick
So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. This is a wonderful picture of her and I recognized her right away. She was always so welcoming when I went to university and stayed with your family over the holidays.
