Joan will be missed by her adoring children Sheila Scarlett Botting (Keith), John Arthur Husband and grandchildren Jessica, Megan (Jag), Michael, Jamieson and Hunter, along with her friend Bruce Morrison.
Joan was born September 8, 1935 in Hamilton, Ontario, daughter of Arthur Scarlett and Elsie Lammy, whose family settled Scarlett Road in Toronto.
She was predeceased by brothers William and Robert Scarlett and her late husband, Dr. Fred Lapp. Joan attended Hillfield Strathallan College in Hamilton and remained lifelong friends with many of her classmates.
Following business college in Toronto, she married in 1958 (Clinton Husband), had Sheila and John and her life's mission was to ensure their continued success.

Upon retirement, she moved north permanently and eventually worked at the Glen Orchard store until age 82.
Her family extends a sincere thank you to the professionals at Princess Margaret and Toronto General Hospital who provided outstanding care during her recent battle with cancer.
