It is with great sorrow we announce the unexpected passing of Joan Rex.
Her husband John Rex, her cats, family and friends meant everything to Joan.
Her unconditional love for her husband, family and friends was shown in abundance.
Joan was known for her thoughtful, compassionate & kind nature. She would go above and beyond to care for those who she thought needed the help. She has helped numerous people in whatever way she could. She was a creative soul and enjoyed the peace and beauty of nature and God’s creation. She loved animals, especially cats, as she would always say God created animals, and they are to be loved.
Joan also enjoyed listening to music. As a youngster in Mumbai she would only have money for one coffee, but would make it last all night so that she could listen to the live performances. Once while in Cleveland, She went to the Mall, while John worked at the Exhibition Center. When she came back, the person John was working with was amazed that she had no shopping bags. She came upon a live musical performance and had sat down to listen. Please check out the Media section which has a small selection of some of the music she loved.
She was deeply loved by her husband, family and friends and her physical presence will be greatly missed by one and all.
John would have loved everyone to be present at her funeral, unfortunately, COVID 19 health concerns and the lockdown restrictions will permit only a small group of people at the service. Hence there is a webcast service for everyone to witness the service remotely, as we bid Joan farewell.
In loving memory of Joan, a donation to “Cats Anonymous” would be greatly appreciated to keep Joan’s love for cats, and for all of us, a memory to cherish.
John would also appreciate if you sign the guest book, on this website, which will be kept in lasting memory of Joan’s “Celebration of Life”.
