It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Joan Irene Dunbar, age 82, of Midgic.  Joan passed away at home with her loving family by her side, on Wednesday, October 19, 2022.

Born in Kirkland Lake, ON, she was a daughter of the late Reg and Ina (Phinney) Acton.

Joan was very active showing cattle over the years.  She loved to garden, working on her shrubs and flowers.  She was a very proud woman, who was strong in her convictions.  She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, and farmer.  Prior to retirement, she worked as a Resident Attendant at the Drew Nursing Home.

She will be dearly missed by her husband Garth, Midgic; children Wendy (Lawrence) Hicks, Sackville, Philip (Donna) Tingley, Milton, ON, Shawn Dunbar (Kelly Robinson), Thorold, ON, Stephen Dunbar (Jennifer Lucas), Fort McMurray, AB; 11 grandchildren, Trudy, Miranda, Justin, Nicole, Philip Jr., Jennifer, Skye, Dylan, Caleb, Cole, and Spencer and 12 great grandchildren Jordan, Alyssa, Hailey, Maddison, Kyle, Autumn, Sadie, Myles, Ayla, Ellie, Sloan, and Walker; brothers Robert (Laura) Acton, Cookville, and David (Anna) Acton, Cookville; as well as several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her sister in law Alma Acton.

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of the Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, NB (506-364-1300), where visiting hours will take place on Saturday from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 pm.  Joan's funeral service will be held from Jones Funeral Home on Sunday, October 23, 2022 at 2 pm.  Burial will follow in the Midgic Cemetery.
