Joyce Giesbrecht

It is with great sadness that the family of Joyce Giesbrecht announces her passing on April 24, 2015 at the age of 84. She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Jan Rivers (Greg), Terri Brault (Paul), and Mike Giesbrecht (Cathleen), as well as grandchildren Will (Nicki), Shawna (Jake), Brandon, Cody, Brittany (James), Brieanna, Taylor (Trent), and Noah. While Joyce will be sadly missed, her family take comfort that she has joined her husband Ben, who predeceased her in 2013. Joyce was born in Verwood, Saskatchewan on July 14, 1930 and moved to BC with her parents in 1946. Joyce married Ben in 1952 and would spend the rest of her life in BC. After 30 years in Surrey and Abbotsford, Joyce and Ben moved to Quesnel in 1982 where they greatly enjoyed their life in the Cariboo. Joyce’s family would like to express their appreciation for Dr. A. Erlank, Dr. Aziz, Dr. Staals, all the staff at GR Baker Hospital, Quesnel Home Support, Shopper’s Pharmacy staff, as well as the staff at Maeford Place. The family would also like to thank the various merchants and staff of Quesnel’s local businesses who showed great kindness and support to Joyce. A funeral service will be held on May 1, 2015 at 2:00 pm at Clayton’s Funeral Home, followed by refreshments and fellowship at the Salvation Army’s Warrior Café. Any donations in honour of Joyce may be made to the Salvation Army.
