She also leaves her brother, Jesse; sister-in-law Cecile and her loving friends (adopted family) Leonard, Julie, Harrison Quinlan also a circle of other relatives and friends.
Joyce was a very loving, humble, happy-go-lucky, funny individual who was easy to make laugh. She was a sweet soul but when pushed could speak her mind getting to the point of a matter.
Joyce loved her family, her three children, Trudy, Raymond and Dianne and her predeceased husband Charlie. Joyce truly loved her three grandchildren, Brooke, Travis and Skylar and spent countless hours videoing them and sharing with the rest of her family. Her grandchildren were the apple of her eye and light of her life, she enjoyed spoiling them.
She enjoyed fishing, shopping, visiting the lotto booth at the Exploits Valley Mall and visiting garage sales to see what interesting goods she could find for herself or to give to someone else, during all this you can also spot her in her favorite blazer or vest.
Joyce’s state of mind changed in 2019 when she was rusted by ambulance to the Central NL hospital, it was a lengthy stay. After her release, there was a drastic change in her mental state. She was never the same and continued to go down hill. Her daily task seemed very mundane and could no longer to look after herself. Therefore, she took up residence at the Twin Town Manor from 2019-2022. She did not like the move at first, but after getting to know the place and everyone she felt like she was at home. She loved all the staff and management, and they were sure to love her back. The workers on the floor used to fuss, hug and dance with her all the time. She was well cared for. Joyce’s family would like to give thanks to the CNRHC Emergency Department and to the third floor Palliative Care her final resting place. Thank you everyone for all your dedication, compassion and care.
Cremation has taken place with a burial at a later date.
