Joan Isabel Marie Keiver
Joan Isabel Marie Keiver, 82, of Midway and more recently of Fundy Royal Manor passed away on February 27th, 2019 at Forest Dale home, with her family by her side.
Joan was born in Knoxford, Carleton County, NB on July 21, 1936, the daughter of the late James and Georgina (Coghill) Enman.
Joan was a homemaker and a farmer’s wife who was a big part of making life on the farm great. Her family was her main priority. They say behind every man is a good woman and this was the case for Donnie and Joan. She was a quiet lady who didn’t like being the center of attention. Her fulfillment in life was watching her children shine and grow into the kind, capable and successful people they are today. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and she was always asking about what they were up to and could often be heard talking about their accomplishments to others. She will be remembered for her loyalty, unselfishness and always putting others first. Joan loved to laugh and had a great sense of humor, we will often think of that little grin or smirk she had. Her legacy of love will live on in the hearts of her family forever.
She will be deeply missed by her children, sons, Terry Keiver (Tammy) of Hillsborough, Dana Keiver (Cheryl) of Riverview and Jamie Keiver (Kelly) of Midway; her daughter Susan Carleton (Shaun) of Ontario; her treasured grandchildren Emma, Zachary, Kasey, Sara, Autumn, Avery, Courtney, Samantha and Matthew; sister Geraldine "Gerry" Stannard (Jack) of Salem; sister-in-law, Gloria Enman of NS. She will also be missed by several nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Donald Keiver in 2017, and her brother Jack Enman.
Honoring Joan’s own wishes, there will be no visitation. A Funeral Service and Celebration of her Life will be held at the Albert County Funeral Home on Saturday, March 2,2019 at 2:00pm with Pastor Paul Steeves officiating. Interment will be in the Bayview Cemetery, Harvey, Albert County, NB in the spring.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Bayview Cemetery or Forestdale Home activity department would be greatly appreciated by the family.
