Joyce (Durdle) Crane
We, the family of the late Joyce (Durdle) Crane, want to express our sincere gratitude for the comfort and support extended to us by family, friends and neighbours during our recent loss. Thank you to all who visited us, offered words of comfort through sympathy cards, online condolences, telephone calls, mass cards, and those who gave monetary and memorial donations in Joyce’s memory. Thank you to those who brought food to our homes, helped in any way they could, attended the funeral service and travelled from away to be with us, your presence and kind words were overwhelming and a great comfort to us. Thank you to Rev Dana Feltmate for the many visits that Joyce enjoyed so much, the celebration of Joyce’s life and the prayers at the graveside and to the readers; Ashley Gouthro and Donna Wall, two very special ladies in her life. Thank you also to her pallbearers; Everett Durdle, Donald Durdle, Fred Durdle, Billy Durdle, Stephen Pastuck, Andrew Beresford, Jeff Pastuck and Matt Durdle, each of you were very special to her, she selected each of you herself and she would have been grateful to you. There are no words to express our gratitude to her dear sister, Brenda Pastuck, for her most touching “Words of Remembrance”. It was beyond anything we could have ever imagined and will be etched in our minds forever. Joyce loved you dearly Brenda and was so touched and honored that you agreed to do that for her, we couldn’t be more proud of you. Special thank you to Jennifer Crocker and Stephen Muise for your absolutely amazing performance of Joyce’s most favorite songs. We know Joyce was smiling, dancing and singing with you. To the Elizabeth Pierce Guild of the United Protestant Church in Sydney River, we can’t thank you enough for providing and serving the beautiful luncheon and thank you to Flo Sampson for the heartwarming piano music during the reception. Joyce’s love for music was well represented. To all of you who gave Joyce such a tremendous send off, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, she would have been truly amazed and so very proud. Thank you to Joyce’s healthcare team; Dr. Elwood MacMullin and Dr. Peter Jackson, for their many past years of care and support, Dr. Carol Critchley and Dr. Anne Frances D’Intino, you truly were both Joyce’s “angels” on earth and we can’t possibly thank you enough for all you did for us all, especially Joyce. To the staff of the CBRH An Cala Unit, your care and compassion was beyond what words can say. An extra special thank you is extended to those family and friends for your unending support and care to all of us during Joyce’s difficult hospital stay, we will forever be grateful to each of you. Lastly, to the staff of Sydney Memorial Chapel, Kollin Weatherbee, we appreciate your compassion, exemplary service, professionalism and support. To anyone who helped lessen our sorrow during such a devastating time and continue to do so, we thank you. Your love, support and kindness will always be remembered and so very appreciated.
