It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife and mother Joyce at the age of 75. Born in Nanaimo, BC on February 14, 1940 and passed away peacefully June 25, 2015 after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease. Predeceased by her parents Andrew and Elizabeth Jolly. Survived by her husband of 46 years, Earl, daughters Brenda Janes of Victoria, Sandra (Jordan) Hett of Victoria, Rhonda (Dan) Gammie of Campbell River and her three loving granddaughters Courtney, Kirsten and Hailey, as well as her sister Elva Jolly of Calgary, Alberta.

The family would like to thank Dr. Tannis Morris and all of the staff of Chemainus Health Care Centre for their wonderful care of mom (Joyce) over the past 4 ½ years.

A private family service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society or the Chemainus Health Care Centre. Online condolences may be made at

God Saw You Getting Tired

God saw you getting tired

when a cure was not to be.

So He closed his arms around you

and whispered “Come to Me”

You didn’t deserve what you went

through, so He gave you a rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,

He only takes the best.

And when we saw you

sleeping so peaceful and

free from pain,

we could not wish you back

to suffer that again.
