Joyce was born in Toronto where she attended Allenby Public School, Lawrence Park Collegiate, and the University of Toronto.
Joyce was an active member of the community throughout her life.

With unwavering support she baked dozens of cookies for school fun fairs and Mayfair. Joyce derived much satisfaction as a lifelong active member of Kappa Kappa Gamma.
The family would like to thank her caregivers at the Balmoral Club and Connie Galeano for the great kindness they showed Joyce in her declining years.
A private interment was held for immediate family members. A celebration of Joyce’s life will be held in the fall.
