FINLEY, Joyce Elaine ,

August 30, 1930 – September 21, 2008

It’s with sadness in our hearts that we announce the loss of a dear wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Joyce passed away with her family around her. She leaves behind the love of her life Garnett, whom she was married to for 58 wonderful years. She will be cherished forever by her daughters Brenda Sleightholme (Paul), Becky, Sandy Bachmann (Alan) and son John (Victoria). She loved each and every one of her grandchildren; Darcey, Jennifer Key (Tyler), Kiersten, Brandon, Kacie, Alex, Karla, James, Brittney, Bailey, Mitchell and Ava. She also loved her two great-grandchildren, Shayla and Kaleb. She was predeceased by her parents, brother George and leaves behind her sister Connie (Don). Joyce was born in Sarnia and moved to Burlington after her children were born. Joyce was a homemaker, but loved volunteer work at the hospital. When Garnett retired they moved to BC. Here they became snowbirds for the next 22 years. Joyce was proud to be part of clinical research for lung fibrosis. Memories of Joyce, her love for her family and life, her funny sense of humour will always be in our hearts. Donations to Royal Inland Hospital would be appreciated. A celebration of life was held for Joyce at Schoenings Funeral Home Sept. 25.

Mom said, “He’s smiling at me”.

You are at peace now; let the angels take good care of you. Our memories of you are with us forever.
