passed away at Terraceview Lodge on

May 30, 2012 following a three month

struggle with complications of heart and stroke.

The elder daughter of Eleanor and Ed Toews, Chilliwack was born on October 11, 1939. She is predeceased by her parents, and younger sister, Sharon. After graduating from Chilliwack Senior

High School, Joan worked in banking and moved to Terrace with her husband, Howard Boake and sons, Bill and Jim. Shortly after, son. Ken and daughter. Lee, completed their family. After several years in the Toronto Dominion Bank, Joan found her true passion working with challenged young people at Parkside School. Seeing these young

people acquiring life skills gave her much joy and satisfaction. Joan is survived by her husband, John Ceh, 4

children. Bill, Jim, Ken, and Lee, step children, Patsy, John, and Carol, 11 grandchildren and many great grandchildren.

The family wish to thank sincerely Dr. M Kenyon, Dr.B Phillips and Dr. E Wong, and staffs of Mills Memorial Hospital and Terraceview Lodge for their kindness and caring this past three months.

A celebration of Joan’s life will be held later in the summer. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to
