Joyce Rosemary Scott
16-Jun-1921 - 22-May-2014
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our
beloved wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend on Thursday, May 22, 2014 at the age of 92 years. Joyce is survived by her husband of 66 years, Walter and 3 children, Allan, Sharon (Jim), Gloria; her grandchildren, Matthew, Tyler, Trevor, Emily and Jacqueline; her sisters, Yvonne Hirning of Kelowna, B.C., Elizabeth (Jerry) Paschen of Edmonton, Alberta and brother Richard (Ellen) Jennings of Condor, Alberta, as well as many nieces and nephews, and her many cherished friends. Joyce was predeceased by brothers Frank Jennings and Jack Jennings of Condor, Alberta, and brother-in-law, Wilfred Hirning of Calgary, Alberta. Joyce’s priorities in life were her extended family and friends. She had a passion for gardening which lasted her entire life. Joyce’s daily yoga practice and walks with her precious dog, Nicky, gave her much enjoyment. Joyce volunteered countless hours at ARBI, Meals on Wheels as well as many other charities. She was actively involved with Woodcliff United Church and served as Roll Clerk for many of those years. Joyce will be remembered for her kindness to others, love of animals, inner strength and sense of humour.
Thanks Mom for always being there for us. We will miss you and love you always.
