It is with great sadness that I learn the passing of Joan. She was a friend and a colleague on our Condominium Board of Directors and I will miss her kind spirit.

An animal lover she proudly shared the latest caper her beloved cat had achieved on her floor. I’ve known her to be a compassionate individual and very warm person.

My deepest sympathy to her family.

I had the pleasure of working with Joan at the Bank of Canada. She worked hard and yet kept her team close making sure everyone took a daily break together. She was friendly, intelligent, kind and had a great sense of humour. It was a pleasure working with her. My sincere sympathy to her family and friends.

It is so sad to hear about Joan. My thoughts are with her family during this sad time. Joan was such a caring person, she was a great friend and I was also an employee of the Bank of Canada. Joan had a great sense of humour and we had a lot of laughs over the years. May she rest in peace.

To the Teske family

My heart is heavy with the loss of my dear friend Joan. She was a big part of my life and her passing has left a huge hole in it. Classmates for 11 years, roommates for 8 years during our early working days and even colleagues at the Bank of Canada for a short while. I've got so many fond memories of Joan...from countless hours of playing back gammon to entertaining vacuum cleaner salesman till 3 am trying to stand up to the pressure sales, to the many road trips we took. She was the best damned co-pilot there ever was even though she never drove a day in her life. She had a great sense of humour and had a contagious laugh. Life was anything but boring with her. Will miss you Joan...rest in peace.

To the Teske family
When we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that you have an angel to watch over you now. Kyle and I would like to extend our most sincere condolences to you.

It was indeed a shock and profound sadness on the death of Joan who served as the secretary for the Board of Directors at CCC 47, Chateau Vanier Tower C since 2006. She was a kind soul and worked hard on the Board for years. She loved her cats and spoke of them at our meetings, especially when they escaped into the hallway. She will be missed. Our sincere condolences.

I will miss you terribly!
Rest in peace dear Joan! Love you! Cynthia

So sad to hear of Joan's passing.

Joan Mackie Goyette, a colleague from the Bank of Canada, September 25, 2016


To my dearest friend and a dear friend of many. I am so fortunate and grateful that you are on almost every page of my 5-year diary between the ages of 13 and 18 - so many laughs we had when we re-read it a few years ago; so happy that you served as my bridesmaid, and being the comforting face I found in the congregation at my father's funeral. Most of all I am so fortunate and grateful that you were always there to listen and comfort me with your honest opinion and matter-of-fact way of looking at life. You have left me with so many good memories. I am so thankful to God for calling to you in a such peaceful way, even though it was too soon. You are sadly missed.

To Terry, John, Karen, Glen, Paul, Philip and Denny - my very deepest condolences.
