McCREADIE, Joyce Kathleen (Abbott) - May 15, 1933 - November 7, 2017
Passed away peacefully, surrounded by the love of her family on Tuesday November 7, 2017 in her 85th year after a courageous battle.
Joyce was a fighter till the very end.
Beloved wife and best friend of her late husband Jack and cherished and devoted mother of Craig, Dean (Lisa), Blair (Mieke) and Lisa (Bill).
Grandma to Duncan, Mason, Melissa, Garrett, Madeleine, Tristan, Meghan and Brady. Joyce will be forever missed and loved.
Memories include her ‘tell it like it is’ personae which she came by very honestly, as well as her ability to stretch a nickel and get change in return. She will also always be remembered fondly as someone who loved her garden more than anything, provided it didn’t get in the way of her next tennis match.
Joyce had many friends and a great sense of humour with a special ability to laugh at herself. She was an animal lover with exceptional fondness for her girls Misty, Killer and Chelsea (who helped her cope with the loss of Jack).
A special thanks to all the people at the Lakeridge Health Cancer Clinic and Palliative Care unit as well as the amazing people at Community Care Durham and VHA Home Healthcare who cared for Joyce over the past number of weeks.
Visitation will be held at OSHAWA FUNERAL HOME , 847 King Street West (905-721-1234) on November 17th, from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. Funeral services will be held at COLUMBUS COMMUNITY UNITED CHURCH, (3285 Simcoe Street North) on November 18th, at 11:30.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please make a donation on behalf of Joyce to Columbus Community United Church.
