Through 1000’s of tears I have to announce the passing of my Mom.  Joan, wife of the late John.  Daugher of the late Archibald and Dolly Orton.  Sister to the late Lloyd.  Survived by her daughter Doran and her life partner Wolf.  Joan was a lover of all woodland creatures, both large and small; but there was a special place in her heart for the fur baby known as Girlfriendie.  Mom, I love you and miss you.  After all you have been through, rest in peace. Cremation arrangements entrusted to McINTOSH-ANDERSON-KELLAM FUNERAL HOME LTD., 152 King St. E., Oshawa (905-433-5558).  At Joan’s request there will be no funeral service and a private family burial will take place at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery, Whitby.  Online condolences may be shared at
