1932 – March 7, 2024 Joan Walker passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, March 7th, at 91 years old. Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, as Joan Lenor Cartmell, she spent her childhood laughing and playing with her cherished older sister Doris (Dodie). In 1943, the Cartmell family moved to Vancouver. She married Noll Walker in 1952, and gave birth to her beloved son Douglas the next year.
Joan and her family moved to Los Angeles in 1964. There, Joan worked as a bank teller for many years. She also learned to square dance, one of her great passions. She eventually settled in Glendale, where she continued to square dance with partners and friends for the rest of her life. She enjoyed trips to the theater, collected colorful square dance outfits, had impeccable taste in jewelry, and loved a good cup of tea and a slice of pumpkin pie (with ice cream, of course).
She is survived by her son, Douglas; his wife, Madeline; two grandchildren, Ariana and Case, and their partners; a great-granddaughter, Eleanor; her beloved niece, Wendy; her loving partner, Joe; and many friends in the square dance community.
Her funeral will be at Hillside Memorial Park on Wednesday, March 13th, at 10am.
