In Celebration of

Joy Elaine McNally

October 11, 1941 -  December 2, 2020

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mom and grandmother on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at the May Court Hospice after a brief battle with bladder and bone cancer. She leaves behind her children Kellie-Anne Mathieson (Brian), Ted Mayors (Laura Liddy), Christopher Knott, and her grandchildren Amelia, Marlee and Terron. She cherished her many friends and neighbors, and was so grateful for their love and support during her final months. Joy and family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the best oncologist a person could ask for, Dr. Dominick Joseph Bosse. You went above and beyond in your dedication, support and exceptional bedside manner. Your compassion has warmed our hearts. At her request there will be no service. In her memory, should you wish, donations to your local food bank or a charity of your choice, would be appreciated and may we ask that you always remember to feed the birds.

My sincere condolences to Joys Family at this very difficult time. Nothing ever prepares us for when we hear the sad news of a friends passing....but we draw on the conversations and laughs shared over the years to help just a little. Many a chat about Family, gardening and tips and even way back in the day, we would have a smoke and hide our evidence so neither one of us would be were a tough “Cookie” with real soft edges you Rest In Peace!

I am so sorry for your family's loss. I knew Joy for many years as a work colleague and a fried. She was a dedicated worker but also feisty and pragmatic . She had a sense of humor. and adventure and enjoyed a good time. My recollection above all was that family was always important to her. It is sad to thin of her final struggle - but having known Joy , she would have, as Kellie-Anne notes fought it all the way. May she rest in peace.

My condolences to the family for the loss of this special lady. She would call me to remind me to book my window cleaning appointment . She was a great sales person always suggesting to book well ahead of busy times. Always being sure as a customer things went well. She was very proud to tell me about her son and his business. She will be missed. Thought and prayers to all of the family.
