Joan Elizabeth Boyd


Joan Elizabeth Boyd

With heavy hearts and deep sadness, we mourn the sudden loss of Joan Elizabeth Boyd, age 68, of Coldbrook. Born in Montreal, she was the adopted daughter of the late Howard and Jean Dawe (Eaton). She arrived in Nova Scotia to attend Acadia University and enjoyed her career as a bookkeeper. Joan's passion was gardening, and she found the most peace digging in the dirt planting flowers. Her doggy sidekick, Heidi, was never far from her side. Joan is survived by long-time companion, Robert "Bob" Wright; daughter, Karen Boyd; son, Stephen Boyd (Tammy); grandchildren Abbey, Gabe, Reese, Kaitlin, Courtney; birth father, Maurice "Moe" MacLean; extended family. Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation, by request. A celebration of life will be held later this summer. Interment will take place in the Elm Grove Cemetery, Steam Mill. Donations in memory may be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation. Arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville. 

Always loved, forever missed!
