Charlton, Joan Beverley
Our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother transitioned gracefully into Spirit on July 2, 2012 at 80 yrs of age. Born in Vernon, she then married Douglas James McQuillan, also of Vernon, who pre-deceased her in 1970. She will long be remembered for her quirky sense of humour, quick wit, wry view of the world, and of course, her wise and loving heart. She will ever remain firmly in the smiles of those who knew her best, including daughter Patricia (Trish) Zierler of Penticton, granddaughters Danielle & Nicole Zierler of Vernon & Victoria respectively, grandson-in-law Hernan Vera Valencia, great-grandchildren Raco and Violetta Vera-Zierler, former son-in-law, Gunther Zierler, all of Vernon, and niece Ruth Bode, of Richmond.
Per Joan’s request, there will not be a formal public celebration of life. If you choose, please do take a moment to say or do something meaningful for you to wish this beautiful soul a rousing “Job well done!” and a safe journey home.
