Joy was a dearly loved wife, mom, grandma and friend. She had a deep love for her family who she enjoyed spending time with. She was proud of them in so many ways. In her spare time, she could be found playing cards, particularly euchre and cribbage and also enjoyed fishing with her husband Ken. Joy’s kind heart and dedication to her family has left a void in the hearts of everyone who knew her.     

Due to ongoing restrictions, a private family graveside was held at Wingham Cemetery on Saturday, May 15th, 2021 at 11:00 a.m.
