Obituary




Obituary for Joyce Kathleen Mahy (nee Moran)

February 29, 1928 – August 1, 2019


Joyce was born in Mount Lehman and passed away gently surrounded by love. She was predeceased by her dear husband Jimmy and her 6 siblings. Joyce leaves behind Susan (Craig ) and Jill (Bob), grandchildren Matthew (Nicole) Katie, Rebecca, Val (Drew) and Patrick, great grandchildren Charles and Alex and many nieces and nephews.

Joyce treasured her childhood and school years on the family’s homestead, though left to attend Vancouver Normal School for her teaching training, beginning her career in in a one room school in Peardonville by age of 17. After marrying Jimmy, they raised their daughters while she continued her teaching. Joyce obtained her Bachelor of Education and a Masters in Early Childhood Education and went on to have a long and distinguished teaching and administrative career, retiring from the Richmond School district.

Joyce always put family and friends first and when she retired she spent more time with her grandchildren and traveling with Jimmy. They then settled back to Joyce’s childhood homestead in Mt. Lehman where she enjoyed contributing to her community and church.

Joyce was always a positive and giving person. We will forever miss her kind and smiling demeanour and her desire for doing good and bringing out the best in those she touched.

Please accept this special thank you from the family to all those who brought her so much joy and happiness in life.

A service for Joyce will take place on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at the Mt. Lehman United Church at 11:00 am and a Celebration reception from 12:00 – 2:00 pm at the Mt. Lehman Hall. In lieu of flowers please donate to the charity of your choice.
