JOYCE, Helen Marie Joyce - (July 23, 1938 - April 3, 2019) - 

On Wednesday April 3, 2019, following a lengthy illness, Helen left in faith to take a closer walk with her Lord.

A native of Kingston, Helen attended University of Toronto, and went on to attain CGA and CPA designations. She was employed as the director of corporate finance for Warner Bros. Canada.

She enjoyed faith, family and friends, often combining these loves at Manresa Jesuit Spiritual Renewal Centre  or The Martyrs’ Shrine in Midland.

Helen is predeceased by both her loving husband Balwant Singh, and her son Patrick (Donna) Desmarteau. Sadly missed by her son Tony Desmarteau (Marina). Dear friend and mother-in-law to Donna. Cherished grandmother to Lauren, Tania and Ian.

Loving sister to Frank (Phyllis) Joyce of Kingston, Mike (Jane-deceased) Joyce of Foxboro and Elizabeth (Hudson) MacIsaac, Nova Scotia.

Fondly remembered by all her great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family. She will be especially missed by her goddaughter Margie (Mo) and family.

All are welcomed to attend a visitation at McEachnie Funeral Home, Ajax, on Tuesday April 9th from 2-4 & 7-9 pm.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at ST. ISAAC JOGUES CHURCH (1148 Finch Ave. Pickering) on Wednesday April 10th at 10:30 am. Interment to follow.

If desired, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society or Baycrest Health in memory of Helen.
