Joanne Lynn Eck (nee Juskow)

January 20, 1954 – May 19, 2022

Suddenly on May 19, 2022, at Selkirk Hospital, Joanne took her last flight at the young age of 68. She was predeceased by her parents Orest and Rose Juskow.

Remaining to mourn her passing are her husband of 46 years, Artur (Art) Eck, and her sister Holly Gay Juskow, and many friends she made over the years. Her cockatoo Rosie and dog Gizmo miss her deeply.

Joanne loved to meet new people and had a gift for striking-up a conversation with just about anyone / anywhere.

Joanne was a very strong-willed and independent individual being able to move mountains when she thought the need. She had a unique motto that she lived by: “You have one flight through life, fly first class”

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, if you so wish, a donation may be made to Cancer Care Manitoba or a pet shelter of your choice.

    Art: we are so sorry to hear about the passing of Joanne. We met her several times while you were doing renovations on our son’s home (Jeff Appler) and she was really a very nice person to talk to and I admired her love for her animals. May she Rest In Peace.

    Art, I’m sorry for your loss. I worked with Joanne for a few years. We both loved dogs. I would met her for lunch at Subway in Selkirk or Canada Inn on McPhilips. We drifted apart as our life’s got busy. Joanne will be missed.

    I met Joanne over 45 years ago through Arthur, we had many a joyful get togethers at their house in the North End. I will always remember Joanne’s boastful laugh and giving personality. She was a main contributing factory in getting me a job at Anixter, where we worked together and she was a great teacher and mentor in learning me about office procedures. All though we lost track of each other over the years, her and Arthurs’s friendship always meant a great deal to me. Arthur may the time you and Joanne made over the 46 years bring you many happy memories. RIP Joanne!

    Dear Art
    So sorry for your loss both Jim and I were shocked to hear of Joanne’s passing. We kind of lost touch with one and other when I stopped selling Avon and when I was no longer able to go out for lunch. We have been living at the lake since Covid started but hopefully will go back to the house in Selkirk this fall. Take care of yourself and each day will get a little better.

    Dear Art,
    I was just thinking of Joanne and was shocked to see that she had passed away. I last spoke with her in April. I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. My Dad was a good friend of Joanne’s from work and it was through him that Joanne and I became email buddies and shared many laughs. Her gentle and kind spirit will be missed. Take care and may Joanne Rest In Peace.
