November 3, 1945 – September 5, 2020

Mrs. Joyce Pearl Louise Parsons (nee Colbourne), age 74 years, passed away peacefully in Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre on Saturday, September 5, 2020.

Joyce was born on November 3, 1945 in Pilley's Island, Newfoundland. She met Cyril Parsons and they were married on May 25, 1962. Joyce dedicated her life to taking care of her family and creating a beautiful home for them. She enjoyed knitting, quilting and reading, but she absolutely loved camping and travelling back home to Newfoundland. Above all else, family was her main passion and she always looked forward to spending time with her children and grandchildren. Joyce will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Joyce is survived by her husband of 58 years, Cyril; children Tony (Ada), Theresa (Shawn) Roberts, Suzette (Todd) Winsor and Sonia (David) Blanchette; grandchildren Brett (Jennifer), Geneva (Shawn), Faith, Bradley, Joshua, Brandon, Felicia and Abigail as well as her two great-grandchildren Jordyn and Gavin. She is also survived by her siblings Albert (Effie) Cobourne, Fred (Effie) Colbourne, Annie Heath, Marion (Chesley) Heath and Una Strickland; sister-in-law Yvonne Colbourne; brother-in-law Howard Mitchell and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives.

She was predeceased by her parents, Chesley and Geneva Colbourne; brothers Ronald (Dorothy) Colbourne and Reginald Colbourne; sister Hyacinth Mitchell; brothers-in-law Charlie Heath and Sterling Strickland as well as her granddaughter Cecilia Roberts.

In accordance with Joyce's wishes, cremation has taken place and a service will be held in Newfoundland at a later date. Should friends so desire, donations made in memory of Joyce to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Rare Disease Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Westfort Chapel, 420 West Gore Street, Thunder Bay.

Theresa, Cyril and Family. We are deeply touched by the news of your mom's passing. While we are confident that she is with Christ in His eternal kingdom, we are very aware of the 'pain' in your hearts. Our prayer is that as you retell the precious memories of a life well lived you will experience peace. Jesus assured us that he would provide us with a gift—peace of mind and heart. The kind of peace no other source in the world can give. Then he encouraged us with these words, "So don’t be troubled or afraid" (John 14:27). We love you and are praying for you! Pastor's Edwin, Rhoda & the entire TEAM at the Family Christian Centre - Fort McMurray AB
