It is with great sadness that we, the family of Joan Mollon, 83, wish to announce her passing at
MacGillivray Guest Home, March 16, 2018 with her daughter by her side.
Joan was born August 8, 1934 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Elizabeth and M.J. Morrison.
Mom lived her last years at My Cape Breton Home for Seniors and most recently the MacGillivray Guest
Home. She received such wonderful care and love from the staff at these homes. Before living here, she
spent 22 years at the Tillock Drive Seniors Complex where she made great friends and memories. She
enjoyed the frequent card games, dart tournaments and get-togethers they had.
Mom had an infectious smile and gentle personality; she was truly liked by all who met her. She had a
great love for her grandchildren and only child, Elizabeth; as well as a special love and fondness for her
son-in- law, John. Besides her family, her greatest love was animals, especially cats. She was so happy in
She is survived by her only child, Elizabeth (John Archie); granddaughters, Brittani (Brian), Cassie
(Michael) and only grandson, Jacob as well as great-grandson, Gage and great-granddaughter, Abigail.
Joan is also survived by her brother, George Mazur.

We would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Regional Hospital Emergency Department as well
as the beautiful nurses at the Northside General emergency department.
