Joan Idington

Joan Idington, Salmon Arm resident from 1968 to 2000, passed away peacefully on Feb 19 in Victoria, BC.  During her life in Salmon Arm, she worked at Federated Co-op as a Senior Administrative Assistant. Upon retirement, she was involved in the Okanagan Historical Society, was on the board of a number of Senior Organizations, and loved to go old time dancing when she could.  She was a gifted artist in numerous ways, from designing and creating all her own clothes and teaching a pattern making and dress design course, to painting in both water colour and oil, and dabbling in pottery.  She will be remembered as a generous, caring, loving, happy, energetic, creative and talented individual who genuinely loved and appreciated her family and many dear friends.  Her strong, compassionate presence will be dearly missed.  Rest in peace mom.
