She will also be remembered by her sister-in-law Doreen Frame, sister-in-law Violet Fellows, brother-in-law Sidney Williams and his wife Betty, brother-in-law Bruce Williams, Edith Williams and by her many nieces and nephews. Joyce was predeceased by her daughter Lynne, who passed away in 1964 at the tender age of seven, by her parents Allan and Gertrude, her sister Helen, and brothers Fergus, Murray, Lorne, Lloyd and Bill. Mom lived her live with grace, kindness, a sense of humour and unwavering devotion to those she loved. She was born May 27, 1924 in Virden and grew up in the Lenore area, first on the Frame farm and later in the towns of Lenore and Virden. She loved to travel, and lived in Brandon, Vancouver and Lachine Quebec where she worked as an administrative assistant at Air Transport Command and stayed with her brother Bill and his wife Mary. While in Lachine she met Dad who was in the Air Force and also worked at Air Transport Command. They where married on May 22, 1954. They soon began their travels first moving to Edmonton where Lynne was born in 1956. In 1959 they moved to Whitehorse in the Yukon and in 1960 Scott was born. Next they travelled to Trenton, Ontario followed soon after by a posting to Toronto where Lee was born in 1963. In 1965 they moved to Winnipeg and lived in St. James. Next was an opportunity to move overseas. In 1968 they moved to Ramstein Germany and spent three years travelling through Germany, Austria, France, Belgium and England. Next, 1971 brought a return to Winnipeg for a second three year tour. In 1974 they moved to Victoria, BC where a year later Dad retired from the Armed Forces and chose to settle permanently in Winnipeg. Mom enjoyed playing the piano, which she played by ear. She was also an avid gardener and had a keen interest in current events. Above all else, Mom loved just being with Dad, tracking her sons' every move and spending time with her daughter-in-law Susan and the three grandchildren. We will miss you greatly Mom, but we know you are reunited with your daughter and are continuing to watch over us.
