Obituary of Joan Marie Knox

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Joan Marie Knox (nee McDevitt), at The Turnbull Nursing Home in Saint John on January 27, 2023, at the age of 86. A dear mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Joan and her beloved husband David, who passed in 2013, loved the seaside and living in New Brunswick, next to flora and fauna.

Joan was an incomparable collector and curator of unique and special treasures and curios and delighted in displaying them for friends and family in her home. Her laugh and sense of humour will be missed by all who knew her.


Arrangements are under the care and direction of Castle Funeral Home, 309 Lancaster Ave. Saint John, N.B. (634 1701). In respect of Joan’s wishes there will be no visitation or funeral service and her family will return her ashes to nature.For those who wish to make online condolences, please visit
