Joy Stone

It comes with great sadness that the family announces the passing of their devoted Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma, Joy Stone, on Feb 22/2009 in Kelowna General Hospital.  Born on April 13 1925, Joy lived in Kelowna all of her life, living most of it in the Bankhead and Glenmore area. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Bernie in 1996, daughter, Sandi in 2002 and daughter-in-law, Ann in 1999. Also passing before her were: parents, Hilda and Harry Snowsell, brothers Ernie, Len, and Frank, sister Bea, sisters-in-law Mary, Lois, Kath and brothers-in-law Ed, Lloyd, Gordon, Earl and Joe.  Missing her now, are her children: Ken (Kathy), Al, Deb (Rich), and Sheri (Jim), her grand-children: Bonnie (Ben), Corrine, Mitch (Christel), Heather (Dave), Lisa (Devin), Wendy, Kirsten, Carrie (Brad), and Lauren, and great-grand children: Avery, Madrea, Matthew, Shelby, Cale, Jessica, and Britney. She is also missed by her sister Gwen and family, sister Mavis (John) and family, and brother-in-law Gib (Shirley) and family. She will always be remembered by her many friends and extended family. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the ICU, 4 East, and Respiratory Staff at K.G.H., for their care over the last 10 days. Also, to the many prayers, words and visits from family and friends. Joy was so fortunate to have so many people in her life. She was easy to be loved by all. We will miss you dearly, Mom. “Go for your walk now to meet Dad and we will all meet up again some day.” A Celebration of Joy’s Life will be held on Saturday, February 28th, 2009 at 10:30 AM from the Kelowna Salvation Army Church , 1480 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna.
