Passing of Joy Dryburgh
I’d appreciate prayers for my brother’s family. My brother Kevin’s mother-in-law passed away yesterday. She had been recovering from an accident that took place late last year.
DRYBURGH Joy (Jocelyn) went home to her Lord on January 12, 2006, at Victoria Hospital, just 8 days short of her 81st birthday. She was predeceased by her husband Dr. Bob (1990). Precious mom to Sharon and Brian Mahon, Heather Dryburgh and Eddie Ebanks, Dean and Lynn Dryburgh and Pam and Kevin Dash. Awesome Grandma to Justin, Amy and Nick Mahon, Kathy and Jeff Buell, Kristy Pearson and Mike Cairns, Jordan, Kim Pearson, Kristen, Melanie, Heather and Brad Dryburgh, Sarah, Meredith and Melissa Dash, and Abuk. Survived by her sister Beverly (George) Madill, and predeceased by her parents James and Jessie Paterson and her brother Grant Paterson. Joy was just that, a joy, and we will deeply miss her laughter, her companionship and her prayer for all of us. She was well loved and respected and had a new awareness of that over the last few weeks, which was an incredible gift from God to her before He took her home. Special thanks to Laurie Shaw and her team, the 4th floor staff at LHSC and the staff (and chef!) at Central Park Lodge for your care for Mom over the last few weeks. Details of visitation and funeral to follow. (James A. Harris Funeral Home, telephone: 433-7253)
