Joyce was born in Kenora, Ontario on November 16, 1924 to Ernest and Florence Angood nee: Waits. At the age of 18, she moved to Toronto where she graduated as a registered nurse from the Wellesley Hospital. Much of Joyce’s life afterward was spent raising a family and moving to various locations every few years as dictated by the careers of her spouse. She lived in a number of Ontario cities as well as a 2-1/2-year stint in England. In 1972, with retirement on the horizon, she and George moved to Bowmanville. It was here that she worked again as a nurse for Dr. John Rundle.
From a young age, Joyce was an avid bridge player. She loved spending summers at the cottage in Gooderham, ON. She was a big sports fan and particularly liked watching hockey, curling and tennis. She spent many years volunteering for the Bowmanville Hospital Auxiliary. She supported Ted in his many commitments to the Bowmanville Rotary Club. She will be remembered for her love and loyalty to family and friends.
Many thanks to the staff at Seasons Clarington and Lakeridge Health Bowmanville for their care and compassion.
Donations to the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation in Joyce’s memory would be appreciated.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
