July 1, 1928 to February 5, 2012
Joyce was born and raised in Montreal. She was married to Evan Jones for 27 years until his death in 1977. Upon her remarriage to Ken Jackson in 1983, she lived in Belleville before moving to BC in 1989 living first in Harrison Hot Springs then Nanoose Bay.
Joyce leaves to celebrate her life and remember her gentle spirit, kindness, quiet strength, sense of humour, love of family and friends, sound wisdom, beautiful blue eyes and wonderful smile are her loving daughters Stephanie Jones [Parksville], Heather Rennick [Ottawa]; stepchildren Janet (Gary) Reschke [Union Bay], Judy (Paul) Carson [Edmonton], Jeff (Dana) Jackson [Enderby]; sister Grace Stevenson [Oshawa] and niece Marilyn Montgomery [Calgary].
Joyce’s love of life will be forever present in this world because of the special love she shared with grandchildren Courteney, Marie, Andrew, Joanna, Rayna, Deanna and Danny. Joyce has happily accepted the role of Guardian Angel to great-grandchildren Jullian, Kage, Quinn, Calla and Avery.
She was predeceased by her brother Allen Montgomery, son-in-law Carson Rennick, niece and nephew Fern and Kevin Stevenson.
Thanks to the staff at Stanford Place for helping her enjoy quality of life for the time she lived there and extra special thanks to the staff of the Fairview Unit for the kindness, comfort and superior care provided throughout her final days.
