MILLER, Joyce Glen Alice

March 23, 1921 – Mar 31, 2013

Joyce, recently of Calgary, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Mar 31, 2013 with her granddaughter Gillian by her side at Wentworth Manor, just following her 92nd birthday. She enjoyed a long and healthy life and those who knew her are grateful for their time with her.

Joyce was born on March 23, 1921 in Sherbrooke, Quebec and moved to St. Catharines, Ontario as a child. She married her prince charming Charles (Harry) of sixty-seven years there in 1941. Joyce was a stay at home mom and took great pride in her daughters, their education, church and her home. Together, Harry and Joyce had three loving daughters – Judy, Linda & Gail. The family moved to the Maritimes and finally to Bedford, Nova Scotia. Together Joyce and Harry developed lasting relationships everywhere they went. Joyce was an active member of the community as well as a member of the Bedford Lionettes. She was an avid bridge player, piano player, painter, traveller and dog lover. She and Harry co-founded the Bedford Lawn Bowls Club, refereeing and mentoring new members. In 2007, they moved to Western Canada to make the mountains their new home. Joyce fit right in at Sienna Park Green. From 2010 she resided at Wentworth Manor, where she received wonderful care and made many new friends. She enjoyed participating in activities – especially bingo, music and outings.

Joyce will be greatly missed by many friends as well as her three daughters – Judith Ann Scott of St. Catharines, Ontario, Linda (Shane) Arsenault of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and Gail (Donald) Millett of Calgary, Alberta; seven grandchildren – Cathy, Cari, Jeff, Stephany, Gillian, Greg and Christian; and 6 great-grandchildren – Iain, Devin, Samuel, Jacob, Nickolas & Chase. She was predeceased by her husband Charles (Harry); son-in-law Martin Scott and two sisters Eunice Hills and Audrey Beckett.

A celebration of life will be held at McInnis and Holloway “Park Memorial Chapel” (5008 Elbow Drive SW) on Friday, April 12, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences can be offered through If friends so desire, memorial tributes can be made to Wentworth Manor ( attention Jenny Robinson – Administrator).

    On behalf of my dad, Glenn, I would like to express our condolences on the death of your mother. I have fond memories of the days that we lived in Birch Cove…..many years ago. My mum, Reta, passed away in October at the age of 93. Dad lives near us in the Windsor Elms Village . It is never easy to lose a parent, but memories help.
    Sincerely, Susan (Joudrey) Fraser, and Glenn

    I surely miss my Grammy Joyce! I always peep in to her room and imagining that she is sitting in her chair watching her favorite sport-hockey. I really miss those nights when we tuck her in bed and we always sing her favorite song “Amazing Grace” then she will sing “Good night Irene”. Lots and lots of memories!
