Joyce Irene Davis passed way on Friday, March 12, 2021 from a short battle with cancer.

Predeceased by her parents Orvan and Mary Hawkins; sisters Laura, Mable, Evelyne, Dorothy, Eleanor and Doreen and brother Jack.

Survived by sisters Viola and Mary; son Barry and Beverly; foster daughter Evelyn Laham; granddaughter Jen Holmstrom (Kris) and grandson Greg (Ashley); great grandchildren Maddison Penniston, Millie and Poppy Holmstrom and special friends Shirley and Don Campbell and Nancy McGowan and Steve Shier and family.

Mom was born in Carman, MB. on October 1, 1928. The Hawkins family moved to Rosser, MB. where she grew up and met the love of her life Jim Davis and were married in November, 1947. Mom worked hard over the years and made a good life and loving home for us all. Mom and Dad moved from the farm to Lions Manor in Stonewall in 1994 where they met many new and old friends. Dad passed away on June 7, 2003.

Mom had many hobbies and talents. She spent many hours sewing and quilting and did many other crafts. She loved her get togethers for card games and bingo or just tea breaks. One other love was to dance and she, with all her dancing partners, travelled to many communities to attend the senior dances and enjoy a good meal. She also met a dear friend Bruce McGowan who they shared many happy times together. Bruce passed away in November 2010.

A special thanks to Moms closest and dear friends Nancy McGowan and family, and Don and Shirley Campbell. They spent many hours together sewing and quilting. They were also there for Mom when she needed help especially the last few weeks.

A special thanks to Interlake Regional Health Authority, Palliative Care and the Homecare specialists as they assisted Mom and our family through this difficult journey. In lieu of flowers, in Mom’s name donations may be made to Palliative Care Manitoba, Alzheimer’s Manitoba or a charity of your choice. A private family graveside service will take place at a later date.
