Joyce grew up in Stratford, ON and with adventure in mind moved across the country to the west to Camrose, AB in 1959. She married Melvin in 1961 and raised their family in Forestburg, AB. She was a pioneer of her days being the first female to work as a janitor at the Alberta Power Plant and worked there for 15 years. She loved her family, and she loved her friends. She enjoyed camping, sharing coffee, and baking cookies with those she loved. Her family was very special to her, and she was known to brag here and there about all of them. She was a wonderful grandma who strived to include everyone and made special memories with each grandchild at different points of their lives.
She will be missed dearly and cherished forever.
A private family service will be held. Donations in memory of Joyce may be made to the CNIB.
