Mrs. Joan Beckwith Mayer (née Willis)
May 23, 1919 - March 17, 2004
Funeral arrangements by
Sands Funeral Chapel (Duncan)

MAYER, Joan Beckwith (nee Willis), passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on March 17, 2004, in Duncan, BC. She was surrounded by her loving family. Predeceased by her husband, George (March 16, 2001), Joan is survived by their six children: Margaret (Bruce) Broadfoot, Alison (Tony) Irwin, Sylvia (Wayne) Douglas, Richard (Marika), Eric (Sandie), and Eileen (Carl) Depping. The family continues to grow as grandchildren bring their special friends into the circle: Dean (Jeannie) Bolitho and young Courtney, Sandra and Allan Broadfoot, Adrian (Kumiko Kagita) and Duncan Irwin, Geordie (Mary) Douglas and MacKenzie and Ryder, Melisa (Ryan Ververgaert) and Kevin (Alexandra Smith) Mayer, Eric Mueller and Ashley Mayer, and Nicole and Trevor (Angie) Depping. The family cat, Blackie, and the little flock of Suffolk sheep will miss their 'Mom', too. Joan was also predeceased by her parents James and Elizabeth (Wakefield) Willis, her sister Muriel Drozdiak and her brothers Donald and Eric. She is survived by sisters Margery Jaggers, Dorothy Fleming, her twin Joy Anderson, and Eileen Herdman, plus numerous nieces and nephews. Born on May 23, 1919, in County Durham, England, Joan moved with her parents and six of her siblings to Canada in 1927. After a short stop in Ontario, the Willis family settled on Castley Road in the Cowichan Valley. In June 1948, Joan married George Mayer. Their home on North Road reflected both a love of family and a mutual interest in gardening. A stay-at-home mom, Joan never tired of being surrounded by young people. It started with their own six children (which included two sets of twins). Once this lot headed down the hill to attend Tansor Elementary School, it wasn't unusual to find more than those six seated at the kitchen table come midday. The extras were classmates who had followed her own crew home for lunch! Joan's stint as first a Brown Owl and then a Guide Lieutenant connected her to still more children. Where she really found her niche was in 4-H, and for more than 35 years, Joan was an active volunteer in the organization. At the time of her death at age 84, she was the A-Leader of the Cowichan Valley Basting Belles. Earlier, when Joan had two clubs under her wing (the Basting Belles and the Cowichan Sheep Club), she always thought of those trips to the Pacific National Exhibition with her young charges as her 'annual vacation'! A Black Tie Award in 2001 was just one of the accolades she received for this long-time commitment to her community. Always busy with her hands, Joan was a frequent exhibitor at the Cowichan Exhibition and won prizes for her flowers, vegetables, knitting, sewing, weaving, basketry, sheep, and recycled projects. Joan has also been active in the Somenos Women's Institute, the Women's Auxiliary of St. John's Church, the Tzouhalem Spinners & Weavers Guild, the Cowichan Valley Garden Club, and the Friday Night bridge group. Joan's family wishes to thank Lisa from Unique Home Care Support, Dr. Stephen Faulkner, and the Cowichan District Hospital for making both the last few months and her final hours easier. A tea to celebrate Joan's life will be held on Sunday, April 18, from 2 to 4 p.m. at St. Peter's Church Hall, 5800 Church Road (off Maple Bay Road), Duncan. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations in Joan's memory may be made to Queen Alexandra Foundation for Children, 2400 Arbutus Road, Victoria, BC V8N 1V7, or to a charity of your choosing.
