McCUBBIN, Joyce Elizabeth (also known as Joy Murray) Aug 24, 1941 ~ June 13, 2011. Joy passed away peacefully on Monday, June 13, 2011 at Ridge Meadows Hospital, surrounded by her son Ronald (Ron) Murray and her friends Clarence Wells and Cathy Rieu. She was 69. Joy is survived by her son, her brother Robert (Bob) McCubbin and her granddaughter Sarah Murray. Joy was born in Toronto, Ontario and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1976. She was proud of her efforts at helping youth in care (particularly First Nations) and loved animals (having had several German Shepherds and African Grey Parrots over the course of her life). “Grandma Joy” had a very special place in her heart for her granddaughter. When she learned that she had cancer, she faced each day with courage, acceptance and wisdom. She will be remembered for her strong will, independence and quick wit (which she kept until the very end). At Joy’s request, no funeral service will be held. Her ashes will be interned at the Maple Ridge Columbaria Garden.
