Bouchard, Joanne


1957 - 2022

Joanne Diane Marie Bouchard, 65, of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, passed away on March 8th, 2022 at the Blanche River Health Kirkland Lake Site with her children and sister by her side.

Born on February 1st, 1957 to Paul and Jacqueline Bouchard, Joanne spent most of her life working with the public and eventually taking over her mother’s corner store, “Bouchard’s Handy Store”.

She was always so proud of her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed time at the cottage fishing and soaking in the sun.

Joanne is survived by her partner of 33 years Jim Stevenson of Kirkland Lake, her daughter Chanda (Joe Jeminiany) and son James Stevenson, her sister Denise (Wayne Betti), her grandsons Connor and Kayden Taillon, her niece Karlee Betti (Mike), her mother-in-law Shirley Stevenson, as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is predeceased by her parents Paul and Jacqueline Bouchard.

As per Jo’s wishes, there will not be a funeral.  Cremation has taken place.  If you would like to make a donation in Jo’s memory to the Blanche River Health Kirkland Lake Site or to The Timiskaming Palliative Care, it would greatly be appreciated.

So very sad to hear of Joanne’s passing. I spent a fair amount of time with Jo in my younger years. I will forever remember her beautiful smiling blue eyes. Such a fun-lovin girl; Always laughing and enjoying the moment. Jo was a fair person who had compassion for anyone treated poorly; Never afraid to call out a bully. A very generous and good natured person. All good qualities of a good person. Rest easy my friend.

Very sad to hear about Joannes passing and thinking about you all at this time. As your neighbors for many years we frequented Bouchard store and always enjoyed chatting with Joanne as we shopped. She was witty and funny and always made her customers feel like family.

Saddened to hear of Joanne's passing.
When all of the corner stores started closing down one by one, Joanne kept her store going with pride. Always went out of my way to visit this store and experience that history.
RIP Joanne

Jo's Family

I have so many shared memories with Jo... i can't begin to express my sympathy to the family. I've known Jo all my life pretty much. We made a few trips to Timmins to shop for our 'guys' at Christmas, and one time, her brakes failed as we tried stop at red light... we coasted through, a semi bearing down on my passenger door, about 25 feet away from Jo's car. She had the nerves of steel and the backbone of iron, didn't panic, got us through.... and saved our own lives. I'll not forget Jo's star-bright blue eyes, her infectious smile, giggles.. and just loving being a sun-bunny(which i was not, but tried for her sake). She was a good, solid friend. I treasure every memory with Jo, Jim and their family. May the memories shared, bring comfort.

I am so shocked and sorry to hear this sad news. I have known Joanne for many years and really enjoyed her company when I saw her. I will miss her dearly. She was a good soul❤

The Stevenson & Bouchard Families

I am truly so very sorry for your loss, Jim. I remember spending time with the two of you upstairs over the store. Joanne was a Personable Soul & she will be missed by many.

I frequented the store, over the years as both a Child playing with Friends in the area & as an Adult, living around the corner. She always served me well!

To Shirley {Mrs. 'S'} Kim & Sue, BIG Hugs!

So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing, James. I'm Jenna Malette's Mom & grew up with your Dad & Aunts on Tower.

I haven't had the opportunity to know you, Chandra & Denise, but I feel your pain deeply.

My heart goes out to her other Loved Ones as well.
