Joyce Marie Gray

(nee Sutton)

December 9, 1932 – May 29, 2021

 

Joyce, in her 88th year, passed away peacefully at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville with family by her side on Saturday May 29th, 2021

 

The most loving wife to the late Kennedy Gray and mother to the late David Gray.  Mother in law to Monica Gray and grandmother extraordinaire to Spencer (Josie) and Mackenzie.  Forever missed by nephew Brian (Carol) Gray of Blackstock and niece Linda Longfield of Brampton and their families.

 

Joyce, a teacher, retired CIBC employee, multi-time award winner at the Orono Fair and a staple in the Orono community will be sadly missed by many of her cousins and friends.

 

Joyce loved the simple life and was the proudest of grandmothers, an accomplished pianist and award winning baker.  Her will to persevere through her beautiful life is truly admirable.

 

Thank you to Dr. Ward & Dr. Irish and all of the caring staff on floor S1 at Bowmanville Hospital.

 

Special Thank you to Evelyn, Betty, Mae, Al and all of Joyce’s friends at the Durham County Senior Citizens Lodge for their everlasting support.

 

A Private Family graveside service will be held at Orono Cemetery on Saturday June 5th, 2021.  Memorial Donations may be made to Bowmanville Hospital Foundation, Orono Fair Grounds or a Charity of your choice.
