  1. Hi Mrs. Forte,

    27 years ago, I was one of your homestay son while studying at St Luke’s. You are a great mom and taught me different things even though we have been living together for only 6 months. The night before heading to US for college, you asked Jason to drive me to the airport, I also remembered we went to west Edmonton mall to buy me a Christmas gift. All those little things are coming up from my memory.

    My heartfelt condolences. I pray that you are surrounded by God’s comfort love. I will miss you

  4. Auntie Joyce and the Forte family were a big part of our lives throughout my whole life. Jason and I attended kindergarten together, and our families were all very very close growing up. She was always a very loving, kind hearted, and warm lady who made us all smile and brought love and laughter wherever she was. So many memories growing up, and one thing I always remember is the happiness and smiles she brought to everyone. The Fortes will forever remain a part of our family. RIP Auntie Joyce. May you always remain safe in the arms of Jesus. My heartfelt condolences to all of the Forte’s family & friends. ❤🙏🙏🙏

She was a long time resident of the Village where we both lived and Joyce was one of the first residents that I met over 16 yrs ago.
