    To Jackie and family
    So sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. I enjoyed my times with Joyce over the years as did my Mum when she visited. We had lots of laughs, I got a telling off too in good humour but was probably justified, but Joyce was a kind woman who shared of herself and will be missed. Big hugs to you all from me over here and love and hugs to my little mate who I know will miss her Mum greatly.

    Love Chuck

    To Jerry and all of Joyce’s remaining siblings
    I was very sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. We were quite close as kids when your parents lived in Fort Macleod and had a lot of fun together. We spent weekends at each other’s homes and were in the same classes in school. We lost touch as we grew older but I always thought fondly of her.

    Although I live in Vancouver and Joyce in various places in Alberta, I was closer with her and Jerry than with my other Alberta cousins. I remember her family visiting my Mom and I when I was about 10 I think and hearing about her looking after me for a summer when I was too young to remember. I was very lucky to catch up with her and Jerry in October last year when I was in Calgary for a WLF Meeting. I will really miss her.

  5. So sorry to hear of Joyce’s passing. Condolences to you Jerry and to Jeff, Jacqueline and Jimmy. You were such good friends and neighbours when we all lived in Wainwright – especially Joyce. She and Liz (leGros/Lunen) who also passed away recently will be having a great reunion in Heaven! Remembering her and all of you fondly and with great sympathy.
