Joy was born June 10, 1923 to Clark and Esther (nee Fossey) Whitney on a farm near Valjean, Saskatchewan, and grew up there with four brothers.

She lost her beloved younger brother, Alvin, to a farm accident at a young age and never really got over that loss.

Joy married Percy Colin Glover in 1946 and lived in Grand Forks, BC for 5 years where her two older children were born, before moving to Victoria in 1951 where she and Colin raised their three children. Her favorite pastimes included: accomplished knitter, seamstress (sewing), avid reader, master bridge player (she received her Life Master Certificate in 1983). She also enjoyed gardening, puzzles, doing crosswords and Bingo. She was a member of First Metropolitan United Church for many years, and also a member of the Gyro Club (Gyrettes) of Victoria.

She leaves behind daughter, Wendy Squires (David) of Port Coquitlam, BC, son, Al Glover (Paula Davies) of Vancouver, BC, daughter, Coleen Van Nostrand of Santa Barbara, California, 8 loving grandchildren, and 3 adored great-grandchildren.

She spent the last 6 years of her life in Queens Park Care Centre in New Westminster and enjoyed reading, crib games and crossword puzzles up to the last.
