We are deeply saddened to announce that our beloved Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother, JOYCE ALENE DYE, passed away suddenly at the age of 78 years. She will be lovingly remembered by her children; Wendy (Jack) Gilroy of Vernon, B.C., Barry Dye of Edmonton, Alberta, Tracy (Paul) Harrison of Kelowna, B.C. and Kim Robinson (Bill Richardson) of Vernon, B.C. She was deeply loved and adored by her grandchildren; Jodi (Lance) Johnson, Jaime (Chris) Ascher, Chad Gilroy, Tenille (Logan) Eley, Tiffany, Garrett and Courtney Dye, Jordon and Ryan Harrison, Chris (Ashley Magill) Robinson, David and Cory Robinson, Stacie, Kelcie, Michelle and Jenna Richardson, her great-grand-daughter, Marissa Ascher, her sister, Peggy (Jim) McDougall of Vernon, B.C. and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members. Joyce was predeceased by her beloved husband, Vern in 2004, her son, Wayne in 1988, her son-in-law, Jack Robinson in 1991, one brother; Gerry Sparrow and four sisters; Norma Forbes, Alma Fallow, Lois Walmsley and Teddy Smith. Family were the most important people in Joyce’s life and she enjoyed spending as much time with them as possible. She loved life and believed in living it to the fullest. In her younger years she was very active in sports and was a great supporter of her husband’s involvement in sports in Vernon through the years. Her home was always open to everyone and she was a great hostess- no one ever left hungry. Joyce had a wonderful sense of humour, sharp wit and enjoyed visiting with people. The Funeral Service will be held at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Saturday, June 4th, 2005 at 1:30 P.M. with Mr. Brian Jackson officiating. Interment will follow in the family plot at Pleasant Valley Cemetery. At the conclusion of the Graveside Service a Reception will take place in the Tea Room at Bethel Funeral Chapel. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Joyce to the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation, 4480-Oak Street, Room B321, Vancouver, B.C. V6H 3V4.
