GOWIN, Joyce Elizabeth Margaret (nee Blacklock)

With heavy hearts and much love our family announces Joyce’s passing from this world on Sunday, September 18, 2022 at Strathmore, AB, age 91. Born in Edmonton on August 12, 1931, she lived and worked in both Edmonton and Calgary before relocating to Leduc in 2006. Joyce is survived by two sons, Lindsay (Kim) and Bruce (Cheryl); one daughter, Geri; seven grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. Per her wishes there will not be a formal Service. Forever in our hearts and memories.

 If my parting has left a void

Then fill it with a remembered joy

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss

Ah yes, these things I too will miss

Be not burdened with times of sorrow

I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow

My life’s been full, I savored much

Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief

Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief

Lift up your heart and share with me

God wanted me now, He set me free

Our deepest sympathy to Bruce, Cheryl, Lindsay, Kim and Family. Joyce was a deer friend to us. Unfortunately we lost touch over the years but still thought of her often. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
