Joanna M. Weston came to Canada in her early 20s. In 1967 she married her husband Robert and they soon raised a family together. An accomplished author, Joanne wrote a number of books including Tradewind’s title Frame and the McGuire and her collection of poetry, A Summer Father published by Frontenac House. Joanne passed away in August 2020. She spent her final years on Vancouver Island with her husband, two cats, and, in her own words, “multiple spiders, a herd of deer, and two derelict hen houses”.
