    I have known Joy for over 50 years, she was a very friendly vibrant person. When I married and moved away, but would go back to visit my Mother, and would see her in the grocery store I always got a big smile and a hug. Her bubbly personality will be missed by her children, grand children and her significant other. She will always be an angle among all of us.

    Cindy, Mark, Rob and Nelson. Sincere condolences to you and your families. A lot of hearts are heavy with Joyce’s untimely passing. Joyce was a bright shiny star in all of our lives. Having known Joyce from working in the grocery store bakery, having friends in common, as well as through the Goldenaire choir, she became a friend. Our giggles in choir might have disrupted our rehearsals a few times… and I regret none of those “naughty” times. It was always exciting when the Goldenaires sang at the Retirement homes, as we all looked forward to seeing “Jimmy” be so excited to see his wonderful sister, Joyce as part of the choir. Our memories are precious and Joyce was precious and I for one am so happy to have shared precious times with her. Thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless. With deepest sympathy, Verna & Rick Hindle and family.

    So sorry to hear this. I remember the first time I got to meet Joyce, it was at one of my first concerts at the harbor. She requested “Hot Hot Hot”. As I started to play she got up and danced and a few others joined her. Since then that was her song, And I always played it for her. We met at the various dinners here in Meaford. She was always helping out wherever she was needed. You will be missed. Our condolences to her family and friends. You will certainly be missed.

    To Joyce’s family,

    I just now found out about Joyce’s death. This is so shocking as Joyce appeared to be someone who would not leave this earth having so many caring family members and friends. She was so alive and determined in whatever the cause would be to see it through to completion. So full of life and love for everyone, she has left a lasting impression on my heart. We both sang in the Anglican Church choir and the Goldenaires and had so much fun at all practices. Her spirit will live on forever.

    Move over Heaven …. Joyce is there!

    My deepest condolences to Cindy, Rob, Mark and grandchildren. You have wonderful memories of your Mother. May she rest in eternal peace.
