BLAKE, Irene 'Joyce' (nee Davis) Blake   -  1929 - 2022 

With great sadness, we announce the sudden passing of our mother, Joyce Blake, on Monday, July 25, 2022, in her 93rd year.

Born Nov. 11, 1929, in Toronto Ontario, to George Davis and Irene Harvey.

Mother to Janet Hildyard (John), and John Blake.

Grandmother to David Bureau, and great grandmother to Elijah Bureau. Wife of the late James Blake.

She was a long time resident of Pickering Ontario, and will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews, and other family members and friends. 

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will take place at a future date. 

In lieu of flowers, if you wish, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or to the Yonge Street Mission, which was founded by her late grandfather John 'Hallelujah ' Davis, and serves street-involved youth and families in need.
