JOYCE ISABELLA BAILEY

Bailey-DeathJoyce Isabella Bailey died peacefully at the Manitoulin Centennial Manor on Saturday, November 30, 2014 at the age of 87. Survived by her beloved husband Jack and her four boys, Chris (Leslie), Peter (Wendi), Mike (Nevena) and Geof (Gail). Predeceased by her brother, John and sister, Mary. Proud Gramma of Erin, Nicole, Stephanie; Alexandra, Coleman, Allison, Cameron, Sophia, Maria; Holly, Matthew, Kaitlyn, Leanne and Sarah. An eternal optimist, for Joyce the glass was always half full. She always spread joy, and no matter how busy she was, and she always had time to help others. She was a lifetime member of the Mary Tindle WA at the Anglican Church (the Women’s Auxiliary was named after her mother), a member of the parent-teacher association, volunteered at the local arena and the Manor tuck shop, and helped with many fundraising activities for local and national causes. Her humour was welcome in any room, as she had a keen wit and sharp execution. She was a devoted wife and mother, transferring her values and guiding her four boys as they developed into young men. She was a wonderful, fun loving grandmother who always had time to play with her grandchildren with a smile on her face and love in her heart. We will all miss her very much. Memorial Service will be at 11 am on Wednesday, December 3, 2014 at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Little Current.
