Joyce Irene Reid (Tucker) – Beloved mother and grandmother, Joyce passed away peacefully on June 9, 2018 at Stratford General Hospital. Born to John and Mary Tucker, Joyce was one of thirteen children and grew up in Waubaushene, Ont. A long time resident of Sebringville, Joyce spent many years as seamstress and First Hand in the Wardrobe Department of the Stratford Festival Theatre.
Joyce was predeceased by her beloved husband, Milton (2015), and by their son, Lindsay (2018). She is survived by her daughters Nancy Doadt (Ed) of Waterloo and Mari-Jane Lobodycz (Nick) of Stratford, and her grandchildren Christine (Rob), Candice (Josh), Jamie (Becky), Nicholas, Ben (Michelle) and Rob. A good friend of Deanne.
Joyce had a love of gardening and a flair for baking. Forever a generous hostess, she will be lovingly remembered for many family and friend get-togethers. Her grandchildren fondly remember running with her through the backyard, playing in the creek and heading inside for another helping of dessert.
There will be a private family gathering and interment in Waubaushene Protestant Cemetery at a later date.
While our hearts are mournful at her passing, we know she is truly overjoyed to be reunited with her beloved Milton.
“My heart is full”
