Joyce Gillan

Here's a note from Joyce's daughter

Today, my inspiring mother passed away. I have always wanted to be as brave, adaptable and empathetic as Joyce Gillan. She faced extreme health problems particularly in the last year. Today, as per her wishes, nature was allowed to run its course. Mom's close family will always treasure their memories of her and try to live up to her example. We know friends, particularly those at Elmwood Long Term Care will miss her humour, understanding and baking! Thanks Mom for all of your heart for so long. Will miss you forever.
