JOYCE FIREMAN (nee SHAMY)
Passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 7, 2012 at the age of seventy-seven, and she will always remain in our hearts. Loving wife of the late David Fireman for forty-two years. Caring mother of Joshua (Thamason) and Matthew (Bo-Li) and sweetly devoted grandmother of Ella, Holly, Jade and Lily. Beloved sister of Celia (the late Mike Rossy), Dr. Frank Shamy (Dr. Tania), Virginia (Eli Shaheen) and Elaine (Rudy Assaly). She will be missed by her brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, friends and the students she taught for over fifty years.
We will miss her selflessness, generosity and great love for her family. But most of all, we will miss knowing that she was always there for us, and watching her snuggle with, read to and teach her cherished granddaughters.
Our family is thankful to the doctors and staff of the Jewish General Hospital ICU for their exceptional care, and for giving us as much time together as was possible.
