Born in Kent, England, Joyce came to Sioux Lookout, Ontario as a young girl. In 1946 Joyce with husband Nick and four children left Timmins Ont. for Wells, B.C. in a Model "A" Ford. In 1949 the family moved to the West Kootenay and in l954 moved to Kamloops. Joyce enjoyed her home and yard in Valleyview. She enjoyed playing golf at the Kamloops Golf Club with the senior ladies group.
A serious operation in 2009 ended her independent living at the Shores. She has been a resident at Park Place Seniors Living for the past four years. Mom had a special bond with her caregiver Cherry, however we want to give a special thank you to all the staff at Pine Grove for their care and compassion during Joyce's stay.
A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, February 4, 2013, at 11:00 a.m in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel with interment to follow at Hillside Cemetery. Friends and family are invited back for refreshments at 1942 Cardinal Drive following the graveside service.
No Flowers please. If so desired donations in Joyce's name may be made to the Pine Grove Seniors Society at 313 McGowan Ave.
