April 17, 1931 –
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Joyce Pearce, our wife, our Mother, our grandmother and our great grandmother. She is survived by her husband, Art, her daughter Susan, her sons Bruce (Elizabeth) Bernard (Junie) and Douglas (Sabrina) and grandchildren Kate, Mark, Sean, Max, Kari and Jasmine and her two year old great granddaughter, Nature. Joyce was born in Wilkie, Saskatchewan and five years later, her family moved to Edmonton, Alberta where she received her schooling. In 1951 she married Art and they subsequently lived in Fort Nelson, BC, Edmonton, Alberta, Tsawwassen, BC and then they moved to Sidney where they have lived for the past 35 years. She had many friends and will be missed by all.
Our heart felt thanks go to VIHA Home Support team, rehab and the ICU wards of the Victoria General Hospital for their compassionate care of Joyce during her final illness.
A Memorial service will be held at Sequoia Gardens at 2pm on Satuday, May 11, 2013. Flowers are gratefully declined but donations in Joyce’s memory will be accepted at her two favorite charities, the Saanich Peninsula Hospital and/or the Mount Newton Centre.
