Obituary of Margaret Joan Cormack



(nee DIMMA)


Joan passed away peacefully in her 92nd year on March 2, 2022 after a long battle with dementia. Beloved wife of the late George Cormack. Loving mother of the late Michael, Catherine (Don) and the late Mary. Loving sister of William Dimma (Louise). Caring aunt to her many nieces and nephews.


Joan spent many years volunteering at St. Michael’s Hospital chatting with patients while navigating the gift cart of sundries, candy and reading materials.  She also dedicated her time to Blessed Sacrament Church and contributed her love of flowers to beautify the church for liturgies.  Joanie continued her volunteer work by organizing activities and social events for disabled adults.  Joanie was passionate about contributing her talents for the good of others. 


Joan spent her last 14 years at The Houses of Providence where she participated in many activities to the fullest. She especially loved singing, but didn’t like bingo because she didn’t win all the time. She always appreciated the care and concern of her wellbeing by all staff. Many thanks to those devoted caregivers for their exceptional care over the years. The family will receive friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles – Newbigging Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville) between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. on Monday, March 7, 2022.
