It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Joyce Marion Read (aka Joyce Pilgrim) on July 17, 2006.
Joyce was in her 74th year and is survived by her four children, Beth Wademan of Chilliwack; Grant Read of Brampton ON; James Wm. Read of Decatur, Alabama; and Susan MacMillan of Prince George, BC; 10 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; her brother, Malcolm Read of Sydney, NS; her sister Muriel Forgrave of London, ON and her sister-in-law, Edith of Brampton, ON; many friends and relatives.
Joyce was born in Nova Scotia and had lived in Chilliwack since 1969. In her latter years she had been a volunteer worker at several different places in Chilliwack including the YM/YWCA, Pro-Life and others.
Joyce was well loved by many and we are going to miss her presence in our lives very much.
A memorial service will be held at a later date in Amherst, NS, where her ashes will be laid to rest in the family plot.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Recovery Foundation of Canada, Box 464, 1755 Robson St, Vancouver, BC V6G 3B7
