Joyce Doreen WeekS
Born September 29, 1926 (Winnipeg)
Died August 17, 2014 (Parksville)
Our beautiful, feisty, loving, amazing Joyce has left our lives but not our hearts, after a courageous battle with cancer.
She will be sadly missed but happily remembered for the wonderful mother, wife, grandmother and great-grandmother that she was.
Joyce is survived by loving husband Cliff, her children Pat, Penny (John), Bryan (Nancy) and Dawna, her granddaughter Karly and partner Mike, her great grandchildren Hunter and Roland, her grandchildren Sage (and great grandchild Chloe) and Jeremy, her son-in-law Steve and daughter-in-law Wendy and their children (who loved Joyce as a grandmother) Meghan, Jacquie, Laura, Connor and Britt.
She is also survived by an amazing group of friends from far and wide, including those from the Toronto area where she lived until 1991, those from her many years of curling, playing golf and bridge, and those from the Parksville Lawn Bowling Club, the Qualicum Curling Club and the Parksville Curling Club. Joyce was a founding
member of the Parksville Curling Club and was a high level curling coach, having coached the Ontario junior mens team to the Canadian finals. In recognition of Joyce’s dedication to curling and supporting that sport in her community, Joyce was awarded the Sport BC Community Support Hero Award in 2004.
She will be greatly missed by all, but especially by Cliff and by Marjorie Blumfald whose exemplary tender and loving care eased her difficult last weeks. A special thanks from Joyce’s family to all of the Parksville Home and Community Support “angels” who supported us throughout.
