October 11, 1938 – May 7, 2021
It is with love and sadness we announce the passing of our mom after a brief battle with lung cancer.
Joyce was born in Vancouver to Catherine and Kalip Bell. She lived in Steveston for the first twelve years, then moved to Chemainus for her teenage years.
Joyce began working for E & N; after two years she decided she wanted to travel the world. She made it as far as Clinton where she met and married her first husband Edward Zielke. They had two children and one on the way when Edward tragically died in a car accident in 1962.
Joyce moved back to Vancouver Island to be close to her parents. She married her second husband Vern Jennings in 1972. Joyce and Vern lived in Saltair until Vern’s passing in 1981. Joyce relocated to the Comox Valley where she worked as a home support worker until her retirement.
Joyce is survived by her three children; Jamie (Shane), Grant (Debbie) and Cathie (Mike), grandchildren; Josh, Kylie (Ian), and Britney, her ladies lunch group and her dearest friend and wine buddy Gloria.
As per her request Joyce wishes that her family and friends remember her fondly, no service will be held.
Please raise a glass of wine in memory of Joyce.
