JAMIESON, Florence Joyce

Florence Joyce Jamieson
July 27, 1925 – February 3, 2019

On Sunday Feb 3, Joyce Jamieson (nee Fisk) passed away peacefully at Lady Minto Extended Care in her 94th year. Mom enjoyed excellent health during her life but her body succumbed to the effects of end-stage Parkinson’s disease.

She is survived by her son Paul (Willa), daughters, Stephanie (Tom) and Leigh-Anne (Mike). Grandchildren, Alexandra, Cameron, Jennifer (Jay) and Lindsay (James), and 4 great grand children.

Joyce, pre-deceased by her husband Cam in 1977, continued her nursing at RCH, New Westminster and later as campus nurse at BCIT, Burnaby. Upon retirement in 1981, mom moved over to her paradise on Salt Spring Island where she continued to thrive and enjoy a productive & happy life volunteering countless days at the Lady Minto Hospital Thrift Shop. Joyce shared the goal of all involved at the Thrift Shop to raise the vital funds that were re-directed back to the Hospital Auxiliary for new equipment and to support other people in need throughout the Gulf Islands. An avid supporter of preventative health care, mom was instrumental in organizing and producing the Island Health Fair for many years. She will be remembered by many as a loving, caring and generous person that always put the needs of others ahead of herself.

Her passion was her home that she created and enjoyed over the years with the help and love of her many friends and family. Those involved will cherish the many great memories of the fun that we had with Mom and most notably, the numerous tins of her delicious oatmeal cookies.

In the last year of her life, she was thoroughly loved and cared for by the amazing nurses and support staff at Lady Minto Hospital and Extended Care. All involved exchanged daily hugs and received Mom’s bright smiles of appreciation, (her personal signature).

Joyce spent most days (when not raining) outside on the wonderful garden patio enjoying all the flowers, hummingbirds, and the peace and quiet. This was her favourite spot in Extended Care.

Mom requested that in lieu of flowers, donations to “Joyce’s Memorial Garden Fund”, c/o Lady Minto Hospital Foundation, would be greatly appreciated and used to update and maintain this garden sanctuary with beautiful plants, flowers, and bird feeders for all to enjoy.
Mom, “We love you to the moon and back”.
“Celebration of Life” will be announced when date confirmed.
