When Pearl Harbour was bombed she returned home to join the Canadian army nursing corps and set sail for South Africa where she cared for soldiers injured in the war.

Widowed with two dependents, Joan returned to school for a diploma in public health nursing and spent several years as “Nurse Riley” at Woodroffe High School. After retiring, she met Stewart Clarke on holiday in Portugal and they married in 1985. For almost twenty years, they enjoyed travel, friends and family. Joan is survived by her husband Stewart, her daughter Susan Riley (Laura McNairn); her son Ted (Margaret Riley); and grandchildren D’Arcy, Luke, Brannan, James and William. Also by her sister, Lois Ross, brother Arnold Burgess and nieces, nephews and many friends.
