Joan Marie (nee Koenig) Molle of Watson, SK, passed away on Monday, March 4, 2019, at the Humboldt District Hospital, Humboldt, SK. She was 84 years of age. Joan was born on August 3, 1934, to Clemens and Elizabeth (nee Wickenhauser) Koenig at Watson. She grew up on the family farm south of Englefeld, SK, and attended Korbel School, just north of the Koenig homestead. Following her education, Joan worked for local families helping with a variety of jobs. On September 7, 1954, she married Lorne Molle in St. Oswald R.C. Church at Romance, SK. They began their life together on the Molle farm near Watson, where they raised their family of four, three daughters and one son. In 1986, Joan and Lorne moved into Watson and continued to farm from town until retiring in 1998. Together, they built a new home on an acreage just south of Watson. A final move was made into Watson in 2005 where they continued to reside. As well as being a dedicated homemaker, for 15 years Joan was involved with pastoral care at Quill Plains Centennial Lodge in Watson. As well, she was a member of the Watson New Horizons Seniors Centre, and a lifetime member of the Watson C.W.L. Her favorite leisure activity was curling.
