ST-CARTIER, Joyce It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of our beloved mother, wife, Nana and sister, Joyce St-Cartier (Nee Tonelli) on Tuesday, February 5th. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 74. Born January 13th, 1945 in Timmins, Ontario to Nello Tonelli and Vivian Tonelli (Nee Bolski) (both predeceased). Predeceased by her older brother Gary Tonelli (Wife Gina). Survived by her loving husband of 39 years, Ray, daughter Lisa Osipenko, sons Darcy Osipenko (wife Julie) and Rick St-Cartier and five grandsons whom she adored - Aiden, Sean, Cameron, Erik and Dylan. She is survived by her younger sister Judi Slattery (husband Jack). Joyce is also survived by many brothers and sisters-in law - Diane and Hans Lohuis, Ron St-Cartier, Paul and Sharon St-Cartier, Mark and Denise St-Cartier, Denise and Don Guenette, Maggie Wakeford and Ion and Bob St-Cartier (predeceased), as well as many nieces and nephews. She lived most of her life in Timmins and settled in Cambridge, Ontario in 2011 with her husband Ray, to be closer to her children and grandchildren. She led an active life volunteering with her Church and community and spending as much time as she could with her children and grandchildren. Joyce was an active member of her Church Parish of St. Patrick’s, as well as an active member of the Cursillo Movement for the past 30 years. One of Joyce’s passions was her work with Saint Vincent De Paul, helping the needy and less fortunate. She was such a beautiful woman who brought such joy, love, warmth and kindness to anyone and everyone who had the blessing of knowing her. Joyce had a wonderful sense of humour and the most joyous laugh. Her smile would light up a room, with a twinkle in her beautiful green eyes. Her love was boundless and her faith was strong. She was our angel here on earth and now God has called her home to be our angel in the heavens. Her passing has left a hole in the hearts of those who knew her, but we take comfort in knowing that she is watching over us. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to Saint Vincent De Paul, St. Patrick’s Parish, Cambridge, Ontario. Resting at CORBETT FUNERAL HOME , 95 Dundas Street N., Cambridge on Friday, February 8, 2019 from 2-4pm & 7-9pm. Rosary will be recited at the funeral home on Friday evening at 8:30pm. Funeral Mass will be held from St. Patrick’s Parish, 53 Wellington Street, Cambridge on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at 10am. Interment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, Paris.
We had many great times and her laugh and sense of humour will always be remembered.
Rest In Peace
All our love
Lisa Stan Steven Emily Rabski
