Joan Margaret Chamberlain


It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our beloved mother, grandmother and aunt after a 10-month battle with cancer. Born on January 19,1943 in Hamilton Ontario. Joan passed away at home on August 24, 2021 at the age of 78 with her daughter and grandson by her side.

Joan is predeceased by her parents Harry Batten (1972) and Mary Batten (nee Johnston) (1980) and brother Harry (2020). Beloved wife of the late Bill Daly (1996). Dear mother of Erica Chamberlain (Adam). Cherished grandmother of Brandon, Chandra and Lucas (Nicole). Joan will be remembered by her nieces Nadine and Julie (Chris). 

Joan was a jack of all trades.  She enjoyed gardening, cooking, home renovations, sewing, quilting, among many other things. She was always up for a challenge. 

Cremation has taken place and there will be a small graveside ceremony at a later date.

A special thank you to the wonderful nurses at Care Partners for all of your support. Messages of condolence and remembrances can be made at

  • Sorry to hear of the passing of Joan C. She was a talented lady making lovely quilts, renovations, painting and much more. I met her through a couple of mutual friends several years ago but lost touch with her. Condolences to her family.

  • Joan was a neighbour of my and from the fist time we met she was welcoming. Joan was kind hearted, straight to the point and even humorous at times.
    She had a beautiful soul and was a beutiful person inside and out. Heaven earned another Angel.

  • I will miss Joan and her many tales, she always had a great story when at quilting. She endoured many hardships but always was up beat and smiling. I will miss Joan but she will always be remembered.

  • I had the privilege of quilting with Joan in Innerkip at the Masonic Hall and was amazed at her accomplishments in life. She was a wonderful source of knowledge in sewing as there weren’t many projects that she hadn’t tackled. Joan will certainly be missed by our group.
