Joanne Markovic


Joanne 55, died Saturday, June 27 in Penticton, B.C., with family at her side. Jo was born May 1, 1960 in Assam, India to Maurice and Mary Wheatcroft. Jo was doing the Sunday Times cryptic crossword since she was 5 years old, but could never balance her cheque book. She was an avid reader & collector of all things – particularly hand bags and shoes. Jo was a fierce, loyal friend and had no time for people that irritated her. Jo loved all things Paul Weller and good reggae. Jo is survived by her husband, Goran; her children, Joseph Tihomir (Tiko) and Eloise (Lu) May; sister, Marianne and brother-in-law David; and nieces Eleanor and Olivia.
