Obituary

Nelson – Joan Rosa

Joan Rosa Nelson (nee Braucht) passed away peacefully in her sleep on May 4, 2021 at the age of 90.

A lifelong Caroline resident, Joan married Samuel Nelson in 1950. Joan was Sam’s life-long partner as a wilderness guide and, later, as a rancher. Together, they were staples of the Caroline community for over 60 years.

Joan was fierce but friendly and she always had coffee ready for all who dropped by. She had a mind like a steel trap which her family, friends and community will miss. Joan also loved to laugh and make jokes.

Predeceased by her only son, Samuel Tucker Nelson (Tucker) in 2012 and not long after by her husband Sam, Joan finished out her retirement years in Rocky Mountain House.

She is survived by her granddaughters Angela and Yolanta Nelson, an extended St. Denys family and many friends who cared for her. A heart felt thank you to Neil and Mary St. Denys whose extensive care for Joan in her last years will never be forgotten. Many thanks to the Clearwater Centre and the staff for the care and kindness during her stay there.

Joan will be buried alongside Sam and Tucker in the Caroline Cemetery.

Unfortunately, due to Covid 19, there will be no celebration of her life at this time.

Condolences

Peggy Jackson:

I have many fond memories of Joan and Sam as they were good friends to my parents, Tom and Marion Jackson. Like in the photo, she always had a smiling face and her quick wit was a force to be reckoned with. Treasure the memories of a wonderful woman.
