Obituary – Joanne Isabel Nordbye

October 11, 1943 – August 19, 2022
Joanne Isabel Nordbye was a loving and generous wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.  She left this world on August 19, 2022, at age 78. 
Joanne was born to Robert and Josephine Gray on October 11, 1943.  Joanne is survived by her loving
siblings Allan (spouse: Laurine), Francis (spouse: Heather) and Kelly Gray (partner: Shari Ure); and her sister-in-law Margorie Gray. Joanne is predeceased by her loving brother Malcolm and her husband Brian Nordbye. 
Joanne met Brian in a bowling alley when she asked a mutual friend “who is your bald-headed friend?” Together Joanne and Brian had two children, Lee and Karen. Joanne has two grandchildren – Kieran and Devin. Their parents are Lee and Kim Nordbye.  Joanne also has two grand dogs, Bentley and Kingston. Furry babies of Karen and Mark Massicotte. 
Spending time with family and friends was Joanne’s favourite pastime. Whether on the golf course, in the backyard sipping her favourite beverage, spending time cooking everyone’s favourite meal, or just sitting around reminiscing about the days gone by, Joanne was a social butterfly that will be dearly missed. 
A Celebration of Life is scheduled on September 10, 2022, at 1:00pm at the Polish Hall (10960 – 104 street NW. Edmonton, AB). 
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Joanne’s family through www.evanjstrong.com.
