Passed peacefully in her 92nd year on February 7th, 2018. Predeceased by her beloved husband Norman. Loving mother to Bruce and Nancy Birkhoff (Paul), loving grandmother to Brian and Anne, and big sister to Betty and Nina. Joy throughout, dedicated herself to her immediate and extended family and loved her many friends. She always volunteered her time when asked at her church, her golf club and many other worthy organizations. Unfortunately, Joy lived her last few years with Alzheimer's that robbed her of many of her faculties but she remained a smiling, happy and dignified person throughout. Very much loved by all. Many thanks to Carefree Lodge for their humane help and treatment. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
