Joan Cundill-Reed

Joan Cundill-Reed of Aspen and Tucson, Ariz., died Jan. 14 after a brief and courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.

She is survived by her husband of 30 years, Peter Cundill, her son, Roger North Wiewel, daughter Evelyn Reed Updegrove and grandson Charles Holden Updegrove.

Joan will be remembered for her grace, beauty, wit, vitality and sense of adventure. She traveled the world with family and friends, volunteered her time at Aspen’s hospital and as a forest ranger and ski ambassador, and found great joy singing in the church and Aspen’s chorale.

She will be greatly missed by the many lives she touched and people she inspired. Kindly send any donations to the American Cancer Society research fund, 1-800-227-2345. An Aspen memorial is to be determined.
