STREBE, Jo-Ann Louisa
November 29, 1953 - August 26, 2016
With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Jo-Ann Louisa Strebe (nee Ouellet), 62, on Friday, August 26, 2016 at Peace Arch Hospital. Jo-Ann is survived by her husband of almost 44 years and best friend, David; children Alicia and Jason; her grandson and apple of her eye, Léo; her mother, Patricia; her younger siblings Robert, Liza, Gisele and Julie; and her nieces and nephews. Born on November 29, 1953 in Toronto to parents Patricia Young and Louis Ouellett, Jo-Ann moved with her family to Winnipeg and then to Montreal. In 1971, she moved on her own to Vancouver where she met David. They fell in love, married and started their life together. Jo-Ann shared her love of food and good conversation with everyone she met. She was known by her countless international homestay students as "Mom". Her family and friends will miss her laughter, loving embraces and company. A Celebration of her Life will be held on September 24, 2016 at 2 p.m. at the Tsawwassen First Nation Recreation Centre located at 1929 Tsawwassen Drive in Delta, BC.
