Joyce Hurley

HURLEY, Joyce Ellen December 2, 1926 to April 8, 2019 In loving memory of Joyce Ellen Hurley (nee Turner), 92 years, who passed away Monday April 8th, 2019 at St. Gabriel's Villa, Chelmsford. Joyce was born in Mortimer England to Gladys (nee Yaxley) and John Turner. She was the loving sister of Tom Turner (predeceased) (Margaret) , Majorie Bailey (predeceased) (Normand), Laurence Georgiou (Linda) and Kathryn (Cliff) Thurman. She began her life in Canada in 1946 when she left her homeland as a war bride at the age of 19. She moved from Cape Breton to Levack Ontario in 1948 with her husband Gordon Patrick Hurley (predeceased) and finally to Dowling where the family remained for over 50 years. The raising of her 8 children was her focus and her joy. She was the best mother a person could ever wish for. Her gentle and loving approach to life touched many people throughout her life. Joyce was also a strong and determined woman. Despite her busy home life, she pursued her education and began working as a bookkeeper. Joyce also had a love for animals. Animals were naturally drawn to her genuine kind nature. She was an active bowler, loved picking blueberries and enjoyed watching curling. She also had a passion for her flower gardens. One of her greatest joys was interacting with her grandchildren. Dearest mother of Colin (Emma) of Kincardine, Gail (Brian) of Dowling, Carol (Bryan) of Toronto, Danny (predeceased), Gloria (Brian) of Val Caron, Mark (Rick) of Verner, Lorraine (predeceased), and Mickey (Sheila) of Dowling. She will be sadly missed by grandchildren Troy, Andrew, Anne, Sara (predeceased), Jeffrey, Theresa, James, Tyler, Benjamin, Shawn and Lia. As well as her great grandchildren Jessie, Hannah, Logan, Myles, Nolan, Eve, Bria, Gavin, Laurin, Christopher, Juliette, Kael, Drayden, Sierra and Lucas. A cremation has taken place in accordance with Joyce's wishes with the interment and celebration of life later this spring.13333897
