Joan Casorso

June 26, 1928 - February 14, 2014


Joan made the final journey to join her beloved Husband Victor on February 14, 2014.  We are comforted with the knowledge that after a Valentine dinner the two will again be off on their next great adventure. 

Joan's passing leaves a hole in the hearts of her family, friends and the community.  She was born in Calgary Alberta, daughter of Ernest and Margaret Macintosh, the family moved to trail where she grew up and was schooled.    After high school she trained as a nurse, that career was to be short and in 1952 she married Victor and moved to Oliver.  Their first home was an apartment above the Fire hall where Joan would open the doors for the firemen when the alarm went off at night.  The young Couple flourished in our growing community and their love and dedication has been infused into many organizations as witnessed by the number of life memberships they have in many of our volunteer groups.  Joan and Victor were honoured with the citizen of the year award in 1996 recognizing their contribution to the community. 

Joan was laid to rest as she lived, surrounded by family.  She will be missed by her children David (Wanda) Casorso, Stanley (Debra) Casorso, Ronald (Ruth) Casorso, Jo-Anne (Alexander “Sandy”) Emerson, 11 Grand Children Dean, Steven, Greg, Travis, Amanda, Michael, Jennifer, Jeremy, Dominic, Samantha, Kevin, 4 Great Grand Children – Makayla, Nolan, Jessica and Harley. 

I know Mom would have wanted to say goodbye and thank you to all her family and friends but there just wasn't time as she had a Valentine dinner date.  So from her to all those that have a piece of her in their hearts goodbye and thank you for everything. 

 Our lives and community have been enriched by her presence and she will continue to live in the hearts of all those she has touched.

A celebration of Joan's life will be held March 1, 2:00 pm at the Oliver Alliance Church.

Relation: Neighbour

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the Casorso Family on the passing of their dear mother/grandmother. We were more than fortunate to have Joan for a neighbour and through the years she exhibited all those traits that go into making a good neighbour. She was kind, generous, welcoming and helpful to a fault. Joan’s smile and her inquisitive nature made her a delight to visit with. We were blessed to have such a good and caring individual to call both neighbour and friend. Sincerely Jack and Heather Frank

I was very sorry to hear about Joan. I have many happy memories of camping at Cathedral lakes with your family. I know my mum considered Joan her best friend and will be very lonely without her to talk to. They used to make me laugh as they told me about the trips they took together – they were like schoolgirls when they got together. Our thoughts are with you. Jennifer (Forty) and Brian Tayes

Our deepest sympathy to Stan, Deb, Greg and Travis and to all of the Casorso families.
