  4. Years ago now, your mum and I were part of the “aerobic angels ” at FLC. Joyce was an inspiration to all of us…always a great smile and a positive outlook on life. It was a pleasure to see her every morning and have fun on our adventures and lunches. She loved her family more than anything. Although I haven’t seen her in years, I will always remember her with great affection.

  5. I was shocked to hear of Joyce’s passing. I have known Joyce for approx 20 years at the FLC. She was always such an inspiration to me to do better at our exercise programs. She loved her family and I know you will always miss her as much as I will. I will miss her pearls of wisdom, her cheerfulness, her chit chats over coffee along with her smile and little giggle. We will all miss her!! My deepest sympathy to her whole family.
