It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Agnes Joan Reid of Arnprior, Ontario on Sunday, January 20th, 2019, in her 99th year. A life long resident of Arnprior, Joan was raised in the CPR Train Station in Sand Point, pre-deceased by her parents Harold and Amy Smith and her late husband Dr. A. H. Reid. Joan is survived by her sisters Molly MacPherson (Gerry) of Vancouver, B.C. and Betty Appleby (late Arthur) of Sand Point, Ontario. Joan was well known as a kind and caring person with a wonderful sense of humour and a true joy for life, regularly riding shotgun on a snowmobile well into her eighties. She is survived by children: Judith Repple (Gunther) and David (Helen) of Ottawa and Jamie (former wife Dorothy) of Vancouver, B.C. Joan is also survived by grandchildren Kurt Repple (Nadine), Jennifer Halkai, Joanna Repple, Megan Reid and Michael of Ottawa and Justin (Angela) of Toronto and Katie (Mark), Laura and Lisa Reid of Vancouver, B.C.
