Joyce grew up on a lovely farm near Canora, Saskatchewan. When she married Ed they moved to Weyburn where she spent the rest of her life being a wonderful mother, grandmother, and friend to those who knew her. Over the years she developed her talents at cooking, baking, sewing garments, knitting, upholstery, paper tole, wood carving, and of course her quilting, although she never appreciated those skills like her family did. Joyce could never resist a piece of fabric that caught her eye. Her gardens at the lake were large, lush and beautiful to see - and who can forget her giant pumpkins!
Any visitor to Joyce’s kitchen had at least three desserts on offer and those lucky enough to enjoy a home cooked meal got to taste something pretty special.
A special thank you from Joyce and her family goes out to friends Elma and Murray McCormick, Gloria Onstad, Gary and Tanya Barclay, Alan and Jan York, nephew Chris Hort and his wife Ann.
Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life for Joyce will be held in the Spring.
For family and friends so wishing, in lieu of flowers, charitable donations in memory of Joyce may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan, 1738 Quebec Avenue, Unit 26, Saskatoon, SK, S7K 1V9.
