Joyce Palmer (nee Forst, nee Harris) of Calgary, AB, passed away on Friday, May 30, 2014 at the age of 76 years.
Joyce was a totally selfless person who wasn’t happy unless she was doing something to help others. She volunteered with multiple organizations including Agapé Hospice and Calgary Meals on Wheels. Music was a huge part of her life. She loved playing flute and clarinet in the Chinook Concert Band, Rocky Mountain Concert Band, and Foothills Concert Band. She also played piano, playing at various seniors facilities, or accompanying students at festivals or for exams.
Nothing was more important to Joyce than her family.
Joyce is survived by her daughter Helen (Norm); sons, Neil and Eric (Dianne); step-children, Barbara (Bonnie), Maureen (Ian), Len (Laurel), and Dan (Barb); grandchildren, Melanie (Bilal), Matthew, Kevan, Kane, Michael, Janine, Eli, Jason (Lisa), Leeann, Jessica, Rebecca, Abe, Yvonne; and more significant others, many great-grandchildren, and countless friends.
Joyce was predeceased by her brother Steven, her daughter Kathy and her husband Dan.
