Obituary of Jo-Anne Brumwell
Jo-Anne L. Brumwell (nee Cloutier)
December 13, 1945 - August 28, 2023
Jo-Anne sadly lost her life to a long and very bravely fought battle with Alzheimers. Jo-Anne was employed by the Windsor Utilities Commission, Water Engineering Department, where she formed many cherished life-long friendships. She and her retired husband Donald moved to sunny Naples, Florida where she enjoyed working at the school board until her retirement. Her love of live theatre, travelling, baking, interior design, friends and family always showed in her forever smile. We already miss Jo-Anne’s sweet and kind spirit.
Jo-Anne is survived by her brothers and sisters Elaine (Bob) Ranahan, Rick (Debbie) Cloutier, Cathy Cloutier, Michelle DeMars and Brian (Rosalind) Cloutier. Aunt to Douglas (Ruth-Anne) Ranahan, Dennis (Dana) Ranahan, Todd (Shannon) Cloutier, Kevin (Melanie) Cloutier, Rich (Heather) Cloutier, Joseph (Lana) Brode, Jeffrey Brode (Melissa Forbes), Carly and Sophie Jederman, Tom (Dawn) Joyce, Rick (Jennifer) Joyce, and Diana (Scott) Christie. Jo-Anne was predeceased by her cherished husband Donald, her loving parents (Emmanuel) Joseph and Dora Cloutier and her incredibly dear sister Denise Brode.
