With heavy hearts, we announce that Jo-Anne Kartali passed away on January 2, 2022 at Concordia hospital at the age of 74 years.
Jo-Anne came from a large family, made friends easily, and had special connections with so many, that we cannot begin to list all she leaves behind to grieve.
Jo-Anne took care of people. It was her nature to give love, and pour her heart and emotional energy generously on to her family. She was not rich, but she brought so much value, beauty and warmth in to our world. She shared what she had and took on the hard, under-appreciated jobs that create community and connect us together. She was a first call both when tragedy struck, and when celebrations were called. She was the glue and back-bone to our family.
