Stahlbaum, Joan E.

STAHLBAUM, Joan Eileen (nee Stevens) - Passed away at her home on Friday, August 10, 2018, in her 89th year.
Loving mother of Jacki Campbell, Terry (Donna) Stahlbaum, and Susan McDaid-Earl. Cherished grandmother of Doug (Sara), Joe (Beatrice), Harry, Max (Danielle), Sam (Misty), and cousin Kalvin. Predeceased by her husband Doug and sister Sylvia.
Born in Portland on the Rideau, she enjoyed an idyllic childhood on the lake with best friends DoDo and Larry. After moving to Guelph she worked for several businesses before managing Stahlbaum Fuels until Doug’s retirement. In her 50’s she bravely began a new career in real estate. After her retirement she enjoyed volunteering at the Homewood Health Centre library. She was an avid gardener, Blue Jays fan, and lover of all animals. Her quick wit and humour will be deeply missed by many who knew her.
Our family is beyond grateful for her many care providers from Guelph Independent Living whose care and companionship she enjoyed dearly and allowed her to have her wish of staying at home until the end.
At Mom’s request a cremation and private graveside family service will be held as well as a scattering of ashes on Big Rideau Lake. Arrangements entrusted to WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 519-822-0051 or
In lieu of flowers donations to the Guelph Humane Society would be appreciated.
“Farewell dear children, my life is past, I dearly loved you to the last. Mourn not for me, nor sorrow take, But love each other for my sake.”

A tree will be planted in memory of Joan E. Stahlbaum in the Wall-Custance Memorial Forest, University of Guelph Arboretum. Dedication service, Sunday, September 16, 2018 at 2:30 pm
