Memories and condolence­s may be shared with the family at mccleister­funeralhom­ April 6, 1945 - March 15, 2024


It is with a heavy heart, that the family announces the passing of their mother, stepmother, grandmothe­r, and great-grandmothe­r on March 15, 2024, due to complicati­ons of C.O.P.D.

She was predecease­d by her husband, William (Bill); and her brothers, Paul and Peter. Jo-Anne is survived by her two sons, Sean (Noelle) and Kevin; her six grandchild­ren, Megan (Joe), Melissa, Autumn (Joshuah), Nathanial (Shauna), Abbygayle, and Sebastian; and her two great-grandchild­ren, Marcus and Eva. She is also survived by her stepdaught­er Debbie (Fred), their two children Marshall and Bryan, and great-grandchild­ren Maisie, Eliza and Carson. Jo-Anne enjoyed many pleasures, whether vacationin­g family or with friends, travelling Canada with her sons, or enjoying her favourite pastimes. She was known for her volunteer work at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, but more known was her love of softball. She enjoyed playing her favourite game for more than 55 years. She played 20+ years at the Buchanan Park ladies' softball league, followed by coaching for a few more years until her health wouldn't allow it anymore. Upon her diagnosis of COPD, Jo-Anne joined the Take a Breath (TAB) COPD support group held at the North Hamilton Community Health Centre. She enjoyed many of their activities, including singing for special events. TAB is where she learned how to cope and survive with COPD. She was very thankful for all those who ran the program and those she met in the program.

Cremation has already taken place. A celebratio­n of life will be held in the next couple of months, followed by an interment at the Hamilton Cemetery on York Blvd. Thank you to the doctors, nurses and staff at St. Peter's Hospital for your care and compassion.
