Joan Louise Sundquist: 1934-2017

Jan 02, 2018

Joan, 83, of Edmonds, passed away on Dec. 16, 2017. Known by her family and friends as "Joanie" and grand- and great-grandchildren as "GiGi," she was the daughter of Ned and Evelyn Ward and sister to Jean Lonn, Norman Ward, Bob Ward (Carol), Grover, Ann (Tootie) and Eddie Ward.

Joan is survived by her beloved husband of 63 years, Roy Sundquist, her daughter Diane Shrewsbury (Bob) and son Harold Sundquist (Yolanda). She will also be remembered fondly by her three grandchildren: Kristin Sonon (Daniel), Russell Shrewsbury (Jessica), and Ross Shrewsbury (Kathryne); and six great-grandchildren: Brooklyn, Gabriel and Lillian Sonon, Renner and Reign Shrewsbury, and Rowan Shrewsbury.

There was nothing that Joan loved more than being a mother, grandmother and great grandmother to all her babies. With her passing a light has gone out in our lives, but a new one will shine brightly in her family and friends hearts forever.
