Mrs. Joan Fischer (nee Parkes) passed away peacefully at the Guelph General Hospital on Monday, May 10, 2021 at the age of 88 years. Beloved wife of the late Ted Fischer (2013). Loving mother of the late Michael (2013) and his daughter Melissa (2019), Edward (Jennifer), Sandra Rogina (Lloyd) of Regina, SK, Robert, Joseph and late Thomas and his son Blake (2003) and the late Paul (1987). Cherished grandmother of many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Survived by her sister Hazel Kreller and dear friend of Joanne Welsh, Holly Wolfond, Debbie Watt and Jane Atkinson. Predeceased by her brothers Earl, Doug, Don and Gary Parkes and her parents Mel and Alice (née Ferguson) Parkes.

Joan will be fondly remembered for her exemplary zest for life, her big heart, and her joyful spirit. She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was funny and fierce, the life of many parties, and many parties there were.

She married Ted in 1952 and together they raised their 7 children in the Guelph area. She drove a school bus for many years and the kids affectionately called her Ma.

Her and Ted wisely created an inviting and welcoming space at their home for family and friends to spend time at. Over many summers we crowded their backyard for pool parties, BBQ's and cool treats. It was a family hub. Joan and Ted also attended all the milestone celebrations, special events, and many outings with all their grandchildren, and then great grandchildren.

Joan was involved in many activities over the years. She enjoyed basketball and teaching ceramics in her earlier years. In retirement, she could be found performing in shows at the Senior's Centre and volunteering at the Legion and local MS group. Her and Ted traveled quite a bit, always up for a new adventure. She had many dear friends and got together with them frequently.

She was loyal, fun, and lived the journey of life fully. We all love her and will miss her beyond words.

Resting at the Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home, Dublin Chapel, 252 Dublin Street, North, Guelph. A private funeral service will be held in the funeral home chapel on Friday, May 14, 2021 at 11 a.m. The service will be available to watch through ZOOM through the link on the funeral home website. Interment at Marymount Cemetery, Guelph. If so desired, memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or MS Society – Guelph would be appreciated by the family.
