Dec 2, 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother Joyce on December 2nd, 2017.
She was predeceased by her husband Emerson Lawrence (Larry) in 1993.
Survived by her five children Michael (Susy), Darcy (Val), Ellen (Dan), Shawn (Lea) and Laura (Brad) as well as ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, she had served as the loving matriarch of our family.
Joyce loved to be busy and there were many family celebrations which she happily attended as her family was the most important thing to her. In her later years, Joyce enjoyed many regular activities such as bingo, crib and poker.
Her wonderful friends from all of her activities, as well as friends and staff from Sunwood have been very comforting to the family during this difficult time.
Joyce will always be missed but will never be forgotten. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday December 17, 2017 at 1:00 pm at Ridge Meadows Seniors Centre, 12150 224th St., Maple Ridge, BC.
In lieu of flowers, donation to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.
