Joyce Mary Barker
Passed on June 9, 2019
(NEE DEWAR) Peacefully on June 9, 2019, surrounded by a large contingent of loving family, mom left this world on the wings of a dove to be reunited with many family and friends who left before her. A mother’s work is never done and Heaven must have needed more. To know mom was to know the kindest person this world has ever seen. Nothing else mattered to her more than family and friends. She only asked that you pay your kindness forward; and for this, the world was a better place. Mom/Joyce is survived by her daughter Tracy; sons Rob (Diane) and Doug (Tracy); her grandchildren Travis, Brittany (Matthew), Tyler, Wesley and Kobie (Taylor). She is also survived by her fur baby Luna and the twinkle in her eye, great grandson Paxdyn and great granddaughter Kyra. She also leaves behind special “daughters” Marj and Carole, her best friend Dorothy and many nieces and nephews and brothers-in-law John Searcy and Frank Barker. She was predeceased by her husband Bob in 2015; by her parents Alexander and Mae, her siblings Don (Audrey), Ted (Sylvia), sister Doreen and sister-in-law Jean Barker. Mom was the smell of certain foods we remember She was the cool hand on our brows when we were sick, She was our Christmas morning, She was our first love, our first friend and nothing on earth will ever take that away. A private family service and interment will be held at a later date. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to a charity of Spinal Cord Research, eg. The Rick Hansen Foundation, 300 – 3820 Cessna Drive, Richmond, BC, V7B 0A2.
