Passed away peacefully on June 16, 2017 in the company of her daughter, Janice, at CAMA Woodlands, in Burlington, Ontario.

Born to Alice (nee Pugsley) and Albert Blamey in Islington, London, England on April 9, 1925, Joy was known for her spirit and determination. She and Charles were married in 1945, both having served in the Second World War. After coming to Canada by ship with her daughters in June 1952, Joy joined Charles in making Ontario their home where she enjoyed various careers including dog breeder, local reporter and photojournalist, executive assistant, entrepreneur and successful furniture salesperson at Eaton’s. She was also well known as a skilled seamstress, knitter, cook and baker.
Many thanks to the staff at CAMA Woodlands for their care and attention over the past four years. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Lynda Elliot and Jennifer Vincent, who provided Joy with exceptional private care and support.
