Joan Sylvia Setter

January 16, 1941 – November 25, 2021

Peacefully on Thursday, November 25, 2021, Joan Setter passed away with her loving family at her side.

Survived by her loving husband Harvey, children, Todd (Glenn) and Lisa (Doug), grandchildren  Cole and Brooke and her brother Jerry (Wendy).

Joan was born and raised in Dauphin, MB on January 16, 1941 by Olga and Andrew Sereda.

They moved to Brunkild, MB for a few years and later settled in Selkirk, MB.

Joan met the love of her life…”HARVEY”…after courting for a few years they were married.

A few years later they began their married life, where Joan spent many years at home raising their family.

As her family grew they spent many memorable summers in Detroit Lakes and Gull Lake with her family and friends.

Joan worked in the restaurant industry for many years. From being born and raised in Dauphin as a Ukrainian, she inherited the talent to make all the traditional Ukrainian dishes.

Joan’s next career landed her with the Western Canada Lottery Foundation, when it was located in Selkirk; here she made many long term friendships.

In later years Joan and Harvey were blessed with two beautiful grandchildren, Cole and Brooke.

During her years of retirement, Joan and Harvey enjoyed many fun trips to the casinos in the U.S.A.

Joan had a love for country music. Her dad and uncle played the guitar and fiddle. Harvey played the guitar as well, and she always loved to sing along. Many weekends were filled with friends, family and music.

Joan enjoyed the summer days in her park-like backyard sitting and doing her puzzle books.

When she was inside, she loved to watch her game shows.

Her life revolved around the love of her life “Harvey” and her family.

Joan developed some health issues that kept her pretty close to home.

Something that she always enjoyed was her coffee time at A & W in the mornings and afternoon. It was the meeting place for many to enjoy coffee and a visit. Joan made friendships that she always held close to her heart.

Our family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and health care aids at Beausejour Hospital for their compassion and care. The personal connections they made helped comfort her.

On November 25, 2021, God decided it was time for Joan to be reunited with her parents.

Her struggles were over and she passed peacefully with her loving family by her side.

We know you are shining down upon us and will help guide us through this painful time.

A graveside service will be held in the spring of 2022 to celebrate Joan’s life.

An announcement will be made at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Manitoba Lung Association 825 Sherbrook Street, Room 204, Wpg, MB  R3A 1M5 or to the Beausejour Hospital Palliative Care Program, 151 First Street South, Beausejour, MB  R0E 0C0.
