Donald George Jouan
January 31, 2016
It is with great sadness that the family of Don announce his passing on January 31, 2016. He leaves to mourn his beloved wife of 49 years Evelyn, daughters Donna (Gary), Lesley (Dan), and Diane. Grandchildren Holly, Sarah, Aidan, Rian and Paige. Sister, Georgette (Bill) Seib, sisters-in-law Carol April-Jouan (late Albin), Merle MacLeod (John) and Sharon Payne (Ken). Don was born August 6, 1941. He grew up in Young, SK where his father owned a garage and Case Dealership. Don started working at the garage at age 13, and later became a journeyman mechanic and machinist. Don met Evelyn in Young and they married in 1966. They moved to Watrous where Don ran a Case dealership with his brother Albin. After selling the dealership Don worked as a mechanic at the Alwinsal potash mine, then moved to Rogers Pass with Parks Canada. Eventually the family moved back to Young, and Don worked with Cameco until he retired. Retirement didn’t agree with Don and he returned to work at the Western Development Museum, working on the Prairie Gamble project. This was by far Don’s favorite job – he enjoyed it immensely and worked there until his illness forced him to retire in Nov. of 2015. Don’s greatest joy was found in spending time with his wife, family and friends. He was immensely proud of his daughters and grandchildren. A service to celebrate Don’s life will be held at the Western Development Museum on Monday, February 8, 2016 at 1:30pm. For anyone wishing to make a donation in Don’s memory, donations can be sent to the WDM or the SPCA.
