Joan left Glasgow and her family and arrived in Canada as a War Bride in 1946. Gordon and Joan lived in Verdun, Quebec where they raised their two sons, Henry and Douglas. Both sons attended McGill University and graduated as Engineers. Joan retired from Nesbitt, Thomson Co. in 1987 but continued to live in Verdun for the next ten years.
