July 13, 1922 – Dec. 5, 2013
It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Joyce Marianne (Powell) Burgess at the age of 91. Joyce was predeceased by her first husband Pat Powell in 1980, her sister Jean and brother Harry. She is survived by her husband Thomas William (Bill) Burgess, her children: Jennifer Maranduk, Dennis Powell (Pia), Patricia Johns (Rick), and Nicky-Jean Powell (Terry). She is also survived by her grandchildren: Carla McBeth (Gord), Jodie Copp, Thomas Kennedy, Heather Pederson (Nigel), Graydon Powell, Tansy Powell, Robin Pridy (Miles), Leif Priday (Jenn) and five great-grandchildren Dane McBeth, Cade McBeth, Jonah Copp, Juno Willey and Marvin Willey. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Joyce was born in Aberystwyth, Wales and emigrated to Canada from England in 1944 with her first husband Pat Powell. She was proud of her career as a registered nurse working in several hospitals and medical offices, including Copper Mountain, Hope, Campbell River and finally as a Director of Nurses in Summerland where she retired. She and Bill were married in Summerland and moved to Sheridan Lake in the Cariboo and then to 100 Mile House. Mom was an excellent quilter and crafter. She was a caring and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. We miss her more than words can express.
