Goyder Jo anneGOYDER, Jo-anne (nee BRAWLEY)  -

June 28, 1949 - September 11, 2023


Jo-Anne has died from ovarian cancer and heart failure.


She is survived by John Goyder, husband; Nancy Ryan, sister; daughter, Jennifer Wood; son, Matthew Esper (Laurie); stepdaughter, Jennifer Goyder; stepson, Chris Goyder (Rachel Alger); grandchildren, Kai and Malia Wood; step-grandson, Simon Petridis; and dog, Jenny.


She was predeceased by her son, Shawn, a brilliant cellist who died tragically in 1992 at age 18, a blow which saddened Jo-Anne for the rest of her life.


Jo-Anne was intelligent, witty, generous, loving, strong-willed and courageous. A gregarious person who made friends easily, she loved playing in the Oakville Symphony Orchestra.


Jo-Anne slipped away from life over several weeks at the Ian Anderson House hospice, receiving the best care imaginable.


The family thanks all the skillful medical professionals who did their utmost for Jo-Anne, these past several years, with especial mention to Dr. Vaz. Jo-Anne will be greatly missed. We request that, in lieu of flowers, any donations in her memory go to the hospice.


A Celebration of Life gathering will be held on Sunday, September 17, 2023, in the lounge at Kopriva Taylor Community Funeral Home, 64 Lakeshore Road West, Oakville, from 6–8 p.m.
