  • Always enjoyed our short talks at the Pembina Curling Club. Len, so sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Bryne McKay (Aquaintence ) on: Jun 20, 2020

  • My condolences to the family. My husband Jules and I first met Joyce at Jackie Kelly's Retirement Party. We had a connection having the same first name. Jules was talking with her about bowling and learned the Monday afternoon seniors at Dakota Lanes needed bowlers. He had been a bowler all his adult life so immediately joined the league. He loved bowling. Joyce also welcomed us at the 9 am mass at St. Timothy's Church. Will miss her warm welcoming. - Posted by: Joyce Pachkowsky (Friend) on: May 25, 2020

  • We cannot find the words to truly express our feelings with Joyce's passing. There could not have been a more wonderful friend and neighbour that we had the honor to have for more than 20 years. Our thoughts and prayers are with Len and his family as they grieve the loss of a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and our special friend with every other nice quality Joyce had as a one-of-a-kind person. We will miss her dearly. Love, Fran and Lionel - Posted by: Fran and Lionel Moore (Friends) on: May 24, 2020
