Joyce Irene Davis passed way on Friday, March 12, 2021, from a short battle with cancer. Predeceased by her parents, Orvan and Mary Hawkins; sisters, Laura, Mable, Evelyne, Dorothy, Eleanor and Doreen, and brother Jack.
Survived by sisters, Viola and Mary; son Barry and Beverly; foster daughter Evelyn Laham; granddaughter Jen Holmstrom (Kris) and grandson Greg (Ashley); great-grandchildren, Maddison Penniston, Millie and Poppy Holmstrom, and special friends, Shirley and Don Campbell and Nancy McGowan and Steve Shier and family.
Mom was born in Carman, MB on October 1, 1928. The Hawkins family moved to Rosser, MB where she grew up and met the love of her life, Jim Davis and were married in November, 1947.
Mom worked hard over the years and made a good life and loving home for us all.
Mom and Dad moved from the farm to Lions Manor in Stonewall in 1994 where they met many new and old friends. Dad passed away on June 7, 2003.
Mom had many hobbies and talents. She spent many hours sewing and quilting and did many other crafts. She loved her get-togethers for card games and bingo or just tea breaks. One other love was to dance and she, with all her dancing partners, travelled to many communities to attend the senior dances and enjoy a good meal. She also met a dear friend, Bruce McGowan, and they shared many happy times together. Bruce passed away in November 2010.
A special thanks to Mom's closest and dear friends, Nancy McGowan and family, and Don and Shirley Campbell. They spent many hours together sewing and quilting. They were also there for Mom when she needed help especially the last few weeks.
A special thanks to Interlake Regional Health Authority, Palliative Care and the home care specialists as they assisted Mom and our family through this difficult journey.
In lieu of flowers, in Mom's name, donations may be made to Palliative Care Manitoba, Alzheimer Society of Manitoba or a charity of your choice.
A private family graveside service will take place at a later date.

  • I enjoyed our visit the other day when I brought my dad to see you and again the next day when Jaylene & I came..I showed you pictures of my boys when we were fishing and you commented how handsome they looked (they kind of take after me-lol) and I know you hadn’t seen them for awhile..I will always remember what you whispered in my ear when I leaned in and gave you a hug goodbye when it was time to leave..You are now free of pain & suffering and in a much better place now with Uncle Jim..Rest in peace Auntie Joyce you will not be forgotten anytime soon as the Auntie who lived across the yard and say Hi to Deep Tiller Jim for all of us..Jaylene will forever cherish the handbag and pot holders you gave her.
