Joy lived a life devoted to her children.

A passionate advocate for progressive change, her friendliness knew no bounds. Many who knew her will have had the experience of asking who it was she had been conversing with at such length, only to be told she had just met them for the first time.

Whether it was volunteering at her children’s schools or her frequent collecting and donating of items to local charities, her unwavering kindness served as an example to friends and family alike. She will be fondly remembered for this generosity, as well as her wisdom, gentle manner and sense of humor.
