  15. In my experience, Joy was kind, inclusive, welcoming, accepting, loyal, a seeker of truth, and faithful, by which I mean “faith-full”. The world is a far better place for having had her in it and a much depleted place by her passing. My sincere sympathy to all members of her family for the loss of a beautiful soul.

  27. Thanks for the opportunity to be present at Joy’s funeral. I’m sure it was because Joy and Vin attended RCIA meetings when John became a Catholic in 1987 that I met Joy. She always asked how John was. We met infrequently over the years at Parish functions or Retreats. I always felt a connection ….Joy’s gift, as Steve and Irene shared. So lovely to see Fr Peter celebrate Joy’s funeral Mass. John and I felt privileged to share your joys and sorrows.
    Rest in peace Joy.
    May God bless you all!

  31. Our deepest condolences on the sad loss of your dear Mother – Joy
    She was a true Lady with a great sense of family, community and church.
    Her gentle touch, soft and warm smile with a kind word was truly endearing and a window to a generous heart.
    We know that she and your Father will be forever in peace, love and harmony with their faith and trust in what the Gospels promise –

    John 14:2 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?

    Warmest regards – Tim and Mary Greene – Christopher and David (Ex St Joseph’s Emerald)
