February 17, 1938 – September 26, 2013
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Joy on September 26th, 2013 surrounded by her family. She is survived by her husband Len and three daughters; Clair (Farnell), Lenore (Colville) and Sharon (McCormack), six grandchildren; Rebecca, Benjamin, Bethany, Amanda, Alexander and Courtenay-Joy; five sisters and one brother.
Joy’s love in life was her family and friends. The door was always open and the coffee on.
The family wishes to thank the nursing staff on the third floor for all of their kindness and attention to Joy’s care during her last weeks. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to your charity of choice. The family will have a Celebration of Life in the Spring of 2014.
Across the years I will walk with you, in deep green forest; on shores of sand. And when our time on earth is through in heaven too you will have my hand. “So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart. For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart.”
