Joy Lovella Hamilton

August 10, 1924 – May 21, 2014

Joy Lovella Hamilton born August 10, 1924 at International Falls, Minnesota, died May 21, 2014 at Duncan BC.

Beloved and loving daughter, wife mom, grandma and great grandma, Joy Lovella Hamilton, with her son and grandson by her side, slipped quietly away to begin her next journey the evening of May 21,2014 at Duncan BC.

Predeceased by her parents, Hilma and Hillary Thompson, infant brother David and little sister Ardelle. Also going before her, the love of her life, Croal (Fuzzy) Hamilton who has been waiting patiently for her since November 1989. Mom is survived by her most precious sons and their spouses, Robert (Linda), Roger (Lorri) and Brent (Nancy).

Grandma will leave wonderful memories with Scott (Tara), Todd (Jodi), Lindsay, Kevin (Lesley), Korbe (Traci), Leela (Phil) and Neil (Cathy)

Great Grandma Joy, or Nammy leaves a legacy of fun and stories to her very dear great grandchildren Kali, Jack, Lauren, Graeden, Olivia, Logan, Lucy, Angelica, Eben, Amelia and Lorne.

Remembering her with love are her sisters in law, Madeline (Ron) Blum and Elvene Hamilton, her nieces Britt and Brandi Blum. She had a special bond with Croal’s niece Bonnie Unrau and her daughter Stacey.

Joy lived a life dedicated to Croal (married July 2 1944) her sons and her grandchildren. A loving and caring person, mom was always able to see the good in others and bring out their best. Living each day with kindness and taking difficulties in stride, she was truly the matriarch of our family and we all looked to her for support and for guidance, which she gave without judgment and with so much love. We are all better people because Joy loved each of us and we loved her.

We know Joy and Fuzzy are dancing in heaven and watching over us. We will miss her beyond measure and keep her memory close in our aching hearts.

Thank you to the staff at Cerwydden Care Home for the care and affection you bestowed on Joy. You are a blessing.

There will be a private family internment but ask that her friends and ours, gather at a Memorial Tea to be held Thursday May 29 at 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, at 39-1927 Tzouhalem Road, Duncan, B.C.

Flowers are gratefully declined but donations to a children’s charity of your choice or The Heart and Stroke Fund are very much appreciated.
