It is with great sadness that we announce that our beloved Mother, Grandma, Sister, Auntie & Friend Joyce Lawrence of St. Albert, Alberta, passed away unexpectedly on February 11, 2021 at the age of 69.
Joyce will be deeply missed by her children Joe, Susan and Stefanie (Fabian), her loving grandchildren Taylor, Naomi, Shelby, Destanie, Paige, Natalie and Lola. Joyce will also be mourned by her sister Diane (& family), her nieces and nephew Jennifer, Jason, Stacy (& family), Catherine, our McCrea Family, her close friends Fatima & Delly and so many more from the East Coast to the West Coast.
Joyce was pre-deceased by her twin brothers, father Gus, mother Minnie, sisters Barbara & Maggie and family friends Eileen & Ray.
Joyce was born in Montreal, Quebec. She really liked city living however she loved the country lifestyle. One of Joyce’s passions was travelling around Canada. She loved to get her nails dirty while working in her various gardens. Joyce had such a big heart and embraced individuality like nobody else. She had an aura of confidence & class, yet humble to her core. Joyce gave the best hugs and her deep love would linger long after her embrace.
Her legacy will live on and the life lasting impressions she made along the way.
An intimate gathering with the immediate family will be held to remember the amazing life & soul that she was.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Joyce Lawrence’s name to the Bissell Centre, 10527 96 St NW, Edmonton AB T5H 2H6 or Operation Friendship Senior Society, 9526 106 Ave NW, Edmonton AB T5H 0N2.
Thank you to Simply Cremations & Funeral Services for your help and for taking care of our mom and family during this very trying time.
We love you Mom!
