Joan (Giovanna Antida) was born on August 2, 1935, in Cospicua, Malta. Her parents were Salv Attard and Mary Cilia. We were married on November 18, 1956, after a beautiful courtship of about three years. After our wedding, we took up residence in Senglea, Malta, where she was my Pharmacy Assistant at our drugstore, Tommy's Pharmacy.
When we emigrated to Canada in May, 1957, she became very active as a Cub Leader in Boy Scouts Canada, and a Ranger Captain in Girl Guides, Canada. She also was very interested and active in the Little Theatre at St.Thomas, Wallaceburg, and Chatham, and Right to Life, Kent.
The Good Lord took her to His arms on March 30, 1996. May she rest in Peace!
