Joyce Irene Lawrence beloved wife of John “Jack” passed away at Stettler on Feb. 11, 2024 at the age of 91 years.

Joyce was born in Drumheller, Alta. to Lily and French Morrison on Oct. 31, 1932. She attended Starland School, and Drumheller for high school, boarding at the dorm.

After graduation, Joyce worked at the CIBC in Delia. Jack and Joyce were married on Oct. 31, 1953.
Joyce loved to garden and growing flowers. She watered and spent many hours caring for the fir tree windbreak on the farm north of Springwater School. They are still a part of the landscape.

In 1971 they sold the farm and moved to Kelowna, B.C. where she grew more flowers and fruit trees. She loved watching the hummingbirds at her feeders, and so enjoyed listening to the prairie meadowlarks.

They moved to Red Deer in 2006 to be closer to family, and to Points West in Stettler in 2019.

She was a member of the Majestic/Farrell Lake Women’s Institute, Eastern Star and Royal Purple.
