Looking for any information about a Joan Clohossey who was born abt 1937 on Prince Edward Island Canada. Her birth name was Patricia Marie Kelly and she was adopted by Will Clohossey and his wife Elizabeth [Libby] Shea from Nail Pond. She married Lloyd Handrahan and they had 3 sons. The oldest one was raised by his grandparents and at her request, the younger two were placed in a foster home by family services before she left the island in the mid 1960s. It is believed she went to the Montreal area where she had a cousin. This cousin was Roger McCue and he ran a prosperous home repair business. Her family only heard form her a few times over the years and believe she was being treated for breast cancer because during her last phone call home she mentioned she was having a 2nd operation on her breasts. She may have gone on to British Columbia because the family received unconfirmed information that indicated she died in Kelowna in 1974. Any and all information and/or leads would be much appreciated by the family. Thank you.
