Words are at a loss to me. To many memories over 40 years plus for limited space. My mentor, My Friend you taught me a lot and you always had the warm hand to lend and words of wisdom to give when needed. Rest now. To Stan & Family, her memories & love will always be with you all.

My lasting memory of Aunt Joy is of the lovely presence that she had that radiated a feeling of warmth and well-being to those around her. She is deeply missed by many. My condolences to Uncle Stan, my cousins, and their families.

Earl and I always enjoyed being with Joy and Stan and have missed visiting with them or driving them to special occasion, which allowed us to catch up with conversation or discussing one of their trips and pictures. Joys little notes with her flowers on them have always been a treasure to me and have framed several of them and given to people I love as a momento. Thanks Joy for teaching us such wonderful things in this lifetime. You will be missed by not only Earl and I but many people you have touched. Thanks for the many memories you have left,
Earl and Marilynn

Aunt Joy lived her name, giving joy to the people she came into contact with. My memories of her are of a busy person never wasting a precious moment of life, and always with a smile. All my condolences to Uncle Stan, my cousins and their families.

My memory holds a treasured picture of my wonderful sister-in-law Joy. In that picture she is smiling her gentle, encouraging smile. That smile reminds me that Joy was an active achiever, working for family and community with loving and generous contributions of talent, energy and constancy. She had equal parts of patience, grace, humour and courage.

Joy was an accomplished artist and craftsperson. To receive one of her lovingly-handmade greeting cards, adorned with its carefully pressed genuine flowers and greenery, was a privilege. To enjoy one of her fabulous home-cooked meals was a delight. She did so many things so well, including wrapping gifts so beautifully with different kinds of intricately-folded paper, that it seemed a sacrilege to destroy her beautiful work in order to open them.

Joy kindly laughed at all one's jokes, and always had a warm smile and compliment ready in greeting.

In all things, Joy was a generous person. In her innate personal character, in her love of family, in her devoted community work, she set an example difficult to match.

My deepest sympathy goes to every member of Joy's family, and to the wider community in this sad loss.

In loving remembrance,

I will always treasure my memories of my wonderful Aunt Joy. My special times with Aunt Joy began in my childhood when our family visited the Dykstra family in Edmonton, and continued through to the more recent visits that my mother, my brother and I enjoyed with Aunt Joy and Uncle Stan at the Allen Gray Continuing Care Centre. Aunt Joy was a kind and generous person who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. I send my heartfelt condolences to Uncle Stan, my cousins, and their families.

TO ALL OF JOY'S FAMILY; IT IS VERY HARD TO REALIZE THAT HER FINAL DAYS HAVE COME,
AND THAT SHE HAS GONE ON TO BE WITH OTHERS OF HER FAMILY. SHE WAS A WONDERFUL CARING PERSON AND LOVED BY SO MANY. MAY SHE REST IN PEACE, AND ALL THE FAMILY INCLUDING YOU STAN REMEMBER THE GREAT TIMES TOGETHER.MY THOUGHTS ARE WITH ALL OF YOU AT THIS TIME.I ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO SEEING JOY AND YOU AS WELL STAN.

Joy's beautiful smile is the first memory that comes to my mind. Her creative talents and loving, gentle manner influenced me over 40 years of knowing her and Stan, through the IOF and our friendship beyond. Joy was a marvelous person and I will miss and remember her always.
My condolences and warm hugs to Stan and their family.
