August 28, 1914 - April 15, 2000

Joyce Alberta Florence is survived by her son Terry Florence; daughters Irene (Earl) Keith, Marion (Ken) McDiarmid, Shirley Donaldson; five grandchildren Trevor, Sean, Michael, Nicola, Jennifer; great granddaughter Rebecca; brothers John and Lawrence McLeod; sisters Abbie Sutherland, Irene Embury and Thelma Hansen. Joyce was predeceased by her husband Joseph in 1982 and brothers Irvin, Earl and Art and sister Doris.

Joyce's favourite times were spent with her family and she loved to have them visit.

Her happiest hours were spent in her garden or outdoors feeding the birds and playing and teaching her long list of cats and dogs. Her German Shepherd, Bear, was her best pal and lived to be 16 years old. A testimony of her loving care.

She will be sadly missed by all.

A celebration of Joyce's life will be held on Thursday, April 20, 2000 at 11:00 a.m. from the chapel of Kamloops Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Kamloops S.P.C.A. or Kamloops Alzheimer's Society would be appreciated by the family.

Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home. Ph. 554-2577.
