RENNIE, Evelyn (Joyce) - Peacefully on October 29, 2013 at Rouge Valley Health Centre Ajax-Pickering surrounded by love, just before her 94th birthday. Joyce was predeceased by her husband Bruce Palmer (2001) and daughter Marilyn (2007). Remembering Joyce and a long life well-lived is her daughter and best friend Diane; grandchildren Bruce and Jennifer (Glenn Kho); the special lights of her life her great-granddaughters Emily and Jillian Kho and son-in-law Brian Steen (Gail Miles). Joyce was a beautiful soul with a smile on her face. She was always ready to listen, help someone in need and was devoted to her extended family. Joyce's love of life and her joy at family births, weddings, visits and reunions will be remembered by the many who loved her. Her knitting needles slowed somewhat in recent years however every baby in the family wore a hand-knit outfit from "Aunt Jo". She will be fondly remembered by numerous nephews, nieces and those who claimed to be nephews and nieces. Many thanks to her caregiver Gabriella who made her last few months very special and the nurses and staff on the 3rd floor at RVHC Ajax-Pickering.
