Joy passed away on December 4, 2011.
Originally from London, for the past 15 years she was a resident of La Jolla. Joy immigrated to South Africa during WWII and studied drama and ballet for nine years. She moved to Cleveland, Ohio, in 1971 and lived there for 22 years where she owned and operated her own women's jewelry and clothing business. Joy moved to La Jolla and, while still interested in creating jewelry, she traveled the world searching for unique stones for her stunning jewelry creations. She will be missed by all her friends from London, Cape Town, Cleveland and La Jolla.
Contributions can be made on her behalf to the San Diego Council of the Navy League of the U.S. or the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
