Joyce Thomas

Death Notice

THOMAS, Joyce - Joyce Thomas died Wednesday April 30, 2014 surrounded by her children at Community Nursing Home in Pickering. She was 91. She is survived by her grieving family who will miss her forever: her children Colleen (Allen), June (Timothy), Owen, her sibling Daphne, grandchildren Bryce, Blake, Adam and Benjamin. Joyce spent the last five years of her life in Pickering, Ontario with her late husband Bill who went to his rest four months ago. Born on June 3, 1922 in Guyana S.A., Joyce moved to England to attend nursing school, where she met and married Bill after a whirlwind courtship, a marriage of 63 years. She and her children followed her husband Bill to Canada in July 1967 and lived in London for over forty years. Joyce worked at Marian Villa Nursing Home until taking retirement. Over the years she made many wonderful friends and was known for her love and caring, her quiet manner and love of family. Her family would like to thank the staff at Parkway Retirement Residence and Community Nursing Home Pickering for all of their caring and support. The funeral service will be conducted at Harris Funeral Home, 220 St. James Street at Richmond, London, on Tuesday May 6, 2014 at 12:00 p.m., following a visitation from 11:00 to 12:00 p.m. Interment next to her husband will be at St. Peter's Cemetery following the service. Memorial donations can be made in Joyce's name to the Parkinson's Society of Canada. Rest in peace and love. Together again, forever.
