Leaving behind her husband of 57 years Gary and their doggie Maggie. She was a loving mother to daughters; Chris (Wayne) and Nancy (Jerry deceased). A wonderful Grandma and Mamie to Amy (Pablo), Ryan, Tanya (Craig) and Jeff (Lisa). The greatest Grandma Cars to Mateo and Selena and greatest Mamie to Matthew and Tyler, Brayden and Sadie. She will be dearly missed by her sister Marie (Rigby) and many nieces and nephews.
In Joyce’s 86 years of life, she was one of eight siblings, she lived a busy life surrounded by family and friends. Her greatest love was her family and she also enjoyed knitting, playing cards, bingo, darts, garage sales and a good buffet.
She was a dedicated member of the Legion and enjoyed spending time at their cottage. She was known for her “crazy” sense of humour, big heart and her fashionable nails. Joyce will be dearly missed by all.
It breaks our heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. A part of us went with you the day God took you home.
