In loving memory of Joanne Rondeau-Morgan, born April 12th, 1958, passed away suddenly at the age of 62, on May 2nd, 2021. Joanne is survived by her beloved daughter Jenevive (Edward); her precious granddaughter (Alexis); her loving sisters and brother: Jacqueline, Pierre, Louise (Andre), and nieces and nephews; predeceased by her husband Wayne Morgan; her father Aimee Rondeau; her mother Rita Lachapelle; by her brother Michel; by her sister Lucille; by her nephew Marc-Andre.
As the store owner of Great Finds Consignment and Gift Shop, she was highly recognized for her talents at taking ordinary household décor and turning it around into a beautiful masterpiece. I’ve seen her paint, glue, adding other items to finish off a whole unique display that she could call her own. She was loved by the community and her clients. Anyone who knew Joanne was blessed with her outspoken and caring personality.
She was most proud of her husband Wayne Morgan, daughter Jenevive, son in law Edward Rystenbil and her only grandchild Alexis. She felt her greatest accomplishments, above her talent and decorating and refurbishing, was the beauty of her loved ones. Nothing made her happier than for us to be all together in the same room just like old times. She also had such a love for animals and left behind her four Chihuahuas and Rottweiler whom I’m sure miss her dearly. I don’t know if anyone could love them the way she did; they were her other children when her daughter was old enough to live and make a life on her own.
Joanne sacrificed herself always; she would rather give than receive and that will never be forgotten. She will be remembered as a selfless, dedicated wife, mother and grandmother who always had a smile, even when times were tough. She had a strength and her famous quote was “when God closes a door, He will open a window for your next chapter in life” or “when God closes a book to your life, a new book and chapter are before you”.
With great sadness, there will be no gathering for a celebration of life due to the COVID-19. A private family gathering and ceremony will be held at the gravesite when it is safe to do so. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Humane Society to honour her love for animals. Revelation 21:4 “And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.”
