FARLEY, Joyce Marie Barbara 23 December 1948 - 28 March 2004 After a courageous battle with cancer, fought with quiet dignity and incredible determination, we are sad to announce that Joyce passed away on Sunday, 28th of March. Joyce was in the constant and loving care of her son Ryan, her family, friends and co-workers during her last days. She was never alone and was soothed by gentle music and the caring touch of family, friends and teddy bears until the end. Very special thanks to the nursing staff at Richmond Hospital Palliative Ward for their kindness to Joyce and patience with the flood of family and friends keeping Joyce company in her final hours. Surviving Joyce are her only son, Ryan and his girlfriend Anna, brother Ron of Montreal, sisters Jean and Bev of Calgary, nephew Bruce of Victoria and Dean of Ontario, niece Karen of Montreal, and much-loved cousin France of Montreal. Joyce will also be missed by many more extended family, friends, and co-workers, plus the numerous international students that she and Ryan welcomed into their home over the years. The true tapestry of Joyce's life was people; she was a magnet that everyone gravitated to. Joyce never forgot anyone who came into her life and she had the telephone phone bill to prove it! We all love you Joyce. Keep on yakking! Cremation, with Memorial Services at Ocean View Chapel, Burnaby, BC, 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, 14th of April 2004.
