June 15, 1930 – October 11, 2020
Joyce Alberta Johan Unsworth (Rugg) received her wings on October 11, 2020 and passed away peacefully in Courtenay at the age of 90.
Joyce was always the life of the party and could light up any room she walked into with her vibrant personality. She was known for her sense of humour and positive outlook on life. She loved her family and friends; treasuring every moment with them.
She loved canoeing, camping, gardening, baking, knitting, and spending her Friday’s with her special bowling friends.
Joyce was predeceased by her husband John, her sister Dorothy and husband Johnny, sister-in-law Jo, and grandson, Daryn.
She is survived by her loving daughters Janet (Ron), Debbie (Jay), Diane (Wayne), and her brother, John. She will be dearly missed by her 10 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, and her nieces and nephews.
A special thank you to her best friend Doris, for her companionship to our mom. You filled her days with joy, laughter, and a lifetime of fun.
Thank you to Dr. Green, Dr. Brais, and the nurses on the 3rd floor for your outstanding support and care.
In lieu of flowers and a celebration of life, please consider a donation of your choice in Joyce’s memory.
