Obituary of Joyce Eva Meservia

Joyce Eva Meservia

February 27, 1931 ~ August 19, 2021

 

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother Joyce Meservia.

 

Joyce Eva Herron was born in Armley, SK on February 27, 1931 to Gertrude and James Herron.  She was the first of five children, four of which were born in Saskatchewan.  In 1942, the family moved to Fort William, ON and in 1951 Joyce married Jim Meservia.  They continued to live in Ontario, raising three daughters, Debra, Sharon and Lori, until 1968 when the family moved to Prince Albert, SK.  Joyce and Jim made Prince Albert home for the next 43 years, until she had to say goodbye to the love of her life in 2011.  Joyce remained in her home until 2016.  After the sudden death of her daughter, Sharon who was her full-time caregiver, Joyce moved into Mak Lodge Assisted Living.  In 2020 deteriorating health forced Joyce to move again to Mont. St. Joseph’s Home, where she remained until her death on August 19, 2021. 

 

Joyce leaves behind two daughters Debra (Ken) Roach and Lori (James) Richards; five grandchildren:  Kerry Wasyliw, Cara (Darold) Stelmaschuk, Colleen Breadner, Victoria (Robert) Latimer and Michael Richards; four great grandchildren:   Michaela Wasyliw, Brayden Wasyliw, Erik Latimer and James Latimer. 

 

Joyce was predeceased by her husband Jim Meservia and daughter, Sharon Breadner. 

 

Joyce was a strong and loving mother and grandmother who will be greatly missed by her family.

 

A special thank you to the staff at Mak Lodge and Mont St. Joseph Home where “Mother” Joyce was treated with love and tenderness.

 

Mom, you can rest now, your job is done.

 

Private Family Services will be held at a later date.  Condolences may be sent to the family at www.grays.ca.  Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Gray's Funeral Chapel, (306) 922-4729.
