MacLEOD – Joyce Myra, 86, of Liverpool, NS.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Mother. She was special in our lives and we loved her so much. She was a small lady but strong, independent and had a smile for everyone.
In her younger years, Mom worked for Kim Wong’s Café and Stedman’s Store in Liverpool as well as Moirs Chocolate Factory in Halifax dipping chocolates. She stayed at home to raise her family with the exception of one year working at the Bowling Alley to earn enough for a down payment on a house and rejoiced the day when we finally had a home of our own. Her children were her pride and joy. Mom regretted not finishing high school but made sure all of us had a good education – and she graduated right along with us.
Church was a large part of Mom’s life. She loved singing in the choir and was treasurer of the ACW for many years. She especially enjoyed the potlucks and Christmas teas and socializing with her community. Over the years, Mom enjoyed quilting, knitting, watching movies and playing cards. She was a wonderful baker as anyone who has eaten a piece of her coconut pie can attest to. And let’s not forget her famous “fried doughs”! Photography was one of Mom’s passions and she loved taking pictures of family, friends and the beautiful irises in her garden. Mom spent many hours enjoying the sunshine on her swing on the big oak tree in her backyard. Even on chilly days, she could be found there all bundled up and swinging away. We are sure going to miss that smile.
She is survived by her daughters Katherine (Barry) Tucker of Coldbrook, NS; Myra (Les) Foley of Lafayette, LA., her son Peter (Dennis Wyatt) of North Vancouver, BC. Her half brother Merrill (Irene) Croft of Dartmouth.
Mom was predeceased by her parents J. Andrew and Jean (Strachan) Oickle, her husband Danny and her half sister Annabelle Rafuse.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral home, Liverpool. A graveside memorial service will take place in Trinity Anglican Cemetery, Bog Road, Liverpool on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.. Reverend Cherry Workman officiating. No flowers by request, donations may be made to Trinity Anglican Church or to the church choir fund. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com. Due to the ongoing COVID-19, all those attending Joyce’s service are asked to bring their own masks, practice physical distancing and provide the funeral staff with names and numbers for contact tracing.

Condolence from Eleanor Roberts on December 12th, 2019 3:44 pm

I have known Joyce since I was a little girl … always a smile and a hug. Once I became Sherman’s wife, she became my aunt too … what a wonderful gift in such a tiny body. Always ready for a joke, a good talk and lots of laughter. My mom travelled with Joyce when they were kids, so as you can tell, it was a bond all through their lives. She was loved and will be missed by my family and when I think of her I will think of her bright rays of sunshine she gave to everyone. She left behind her family and friends to mourn her and I, for one, will always miss her. Much love Eleanor (Orme) and Sherman Roberts and my mom Hazel Orme.

Condolence from Keith Wyer on December 12th, 2019 3:49 pm

SHE WAS A GREAT ONE..Looking forward to seeing you all at her service in the spring.

Condolence from Deborah (DeChamp) McIntyre on December 12th, 2019 4:09 pm

Kathy, Myra and Peter plus spouses I wish to extend you my sincere condolences. Your Mother was always smiling. She made my life more bearable when I was growing up and friends with Kathy in school. She opened her home for me to get ready on my wedding day and putting up with our drinking the night before my wedding. She made me promise to bring my 1st born to let her see and I did just that. She was so happy and gushed over my son. I will always see her smile and feel her touch when I needed a hug. We did have a few talks and she was so kind and understanding. Kathy you are definately a chip off the old block and be proud of that. See you in the spring when we get to say our final farewells to an amazing woman, mother, wife and friend. God Bless you and you entire family.

It is with a very heavy heart I read that Joyce has passed away. What a delight she was to have a chat with. I got to know Joyce the 6.5 years I was at the $ store on Main. Joyce was ” frequent ” customer that I looked forward to see whenever she came through the doors. She did like her swing. She told many of stories about her & mama & swinging on her swing. She loved her mama. Now they are reunited. She will be missed. Hope there’s a swing in Heaven my friend.

Thinking of you our dear friend Myra & wish we could do or say something to make the sad loss of your mom easier for you Les & your family, hold your memories close. What a lovely tribute to your mom in the obituary, she was a really great lady. I only had her fried dough’s once but they were so good, amazing good as was the fried Oreo made after the dough,one of the dough’s or Oreo’s was not enough! Keep your memories close.
Tracey & Craig

Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Because a loved one’s gone.
Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart,
Far as long as there is memory,
They’ll live on in the heart.

Peter and Carol Kelly Retired RCMP S/Sgt, Liverpool Detachment 1993 to 2000. Living in Bridgewater now
To Kathy, Myra and Peter: May God be close to you now, for strength and comfort and may His peace overflow in the days to come. There is so little one can say, so little one can do when you have lost a loved one.
Your mother was a very dear and close friend and was very special to Cheryle, Carol and I. I first met her in July of 1993 when I took over the command of the Liverpool RCMP Detachment and I was at the Post Office picking up the mail. I noticed this little lady near the door looking my way with a big smile on. I Walked over to her and introduced myself to her. We had a nice chat and when I was leaving she invited me to drop by for a coffee and told me to make Sure I brought my wife with me and the rest is history and over the next 26 years our friendship grew.
People come into your life for a special reason and you’re so thankful they did and Joyce was one of them. I am so glad that I was able to speak to her in person before she passed. We told each other what our friendship met to the other and prayed God to take her. GOD DELIVERED. May you Rest In Peace my friend.

To “Aunt Joyce’s” family. So sorry for your loss. Last time Thane Dunn was here she gave me her camera to take pictures of the two of them . She was smiling from ear to ear. And he just fell in love with our little Joyce. I also had the pleasure to be invited to sample her fried dough….so yummy. Joyce will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all that knew her.

My sincerest condolences,
Teresa Smiley

To Kathy, Myra and Peter,
Your mother was like a second mom to me and for that I will be forever grateful. I always enjoyed the time we spent together and I wish it could have been longer! Bonnie met Joyce and found her to be a lovely, jovial lady. I believe that she knew and decided on when she left, that time came to quickly, though it was her choice. We will hopefully get together in the spring and celebrate her life, love and her sweet laugh. Oh, we also enjoyed the video with the many memories and family pictures! Take care of each other.
with love,
Norman and Bonnie

To Joyce’s Family: We are so sorry for your loss. Joyce will be missed by many people. We visited her several weeks ago at the hospital and although she was not feeling well, she still had her magic smile on her face. Always so friendly she will be missed by all who came in contact with her. Many years ago we played cards with Danny and Joyce and the rest of the gang back then. They were good times. Hopefully her memories will help you at this sad time.

Condolence from Brad MacLeod on January 2nd, 2020 11:45 am

Wish we would have gotten up sooner to visit with her. Always said we should go see Joyce but then it always got post poned. Just goes to show. Make time for those you love. Treasure those moments cause you just never know when they will end. Prayers and love to Kathy, Myra and Peter.
