Dear Bill,

I am so sorry to hear of Joyce's passing.

I met Joyce in grade nine, and that year we had great snow at Christmas. I remember a fun tobogganing party with her and Joyce. Those Varna gals!

My sincere condolences.

My deepest sympathy to Joyce's family. I had the pleasure of working with Joyce at St. Josephs Health Care. I always admired her calm and collected nature and the compassion she conveyed to every patient she cared for. She had the best sense of humour which helped us all get through challenging days.

I worked with Joyce for several years at St. Joseph’s Hospital. She was a wonderful nurse who never lost her cool. It was a tough unit where we all worked hard. A few of us became very good friends and would get together outside of work. One time I was visiting when Joyce and Bill were living in the townhouse and she was expecting her first baby. She was showing us the room she was going to make into a nursery. There was a big blue and white china jug and bowl set which I admired. Joyce says in her matter of fact way “you can have it for $25. I took it home with me. All these years later it is still on display in my home. So I have always had this to remind me of Joyce. May she now be safe in the arms of the Angels.

I'll always have fond memories of Joyce. Her wit, humour, and positive attitude was always a pleasure to experience while working with her at St. Joe's.
Everyone who knew her will miss her. My deepest sympathy to the whole family.

I grew up in Varna during the 50’s&60’s and went to S.S. 6 with Joyce. Ya really get to know each other in a one room school!! Joyce was a year younger than me and as kids we all played together. Oh of there was the odd bickering too but I truly liked Joyce she had a great sense of humour. And although we went our separate ways during adulthood when we did meet it was always the joe old times. I know her family will miss he very much and our thoughts are with them. Steve Clarke
