JOAN HARVEY

Joan Harvey passed away on April 18, 2017 at the age of 86. She was born on June 29, 1930 in Liverpool, England, the daughter of David and Doris Roxburgh.

She is survived by her husband Len Harvey, two sons David and Alan, daughter Carolyn, son-in-laws Jim Vahrenwald and David Hendricks, grandson Aaron Vahrenwald, and her sister Beryl Bunn.

A devoted mother and wife, raising her family was the main passion in her life. She was always ready to listen to the latest adventures of her children and to offer advice. Her other passions included warm ocean cruises with Len, attending the theatre, and decorating every available surface of her home with Christmas decorations during the holidays.
