Joyce WESSON

Joyce WESSON

WESSON Joyce (nee Clarke). Born November 28, 1926, slipped away peacefully January 2, 2013 at the age of 86. Joyce was predeceased by her husband Marcel Wesson (1927 – 1973), her parents Ernest and Louise Clarke, her sister Carol Duffus, and her brother-in-law Owen Hughes. Lovingly remembered by her children: Rob Wesson (Melanie), Marcia Cooper (Jerry), Barb Cassey (Peter); her grandchildren: Ashley (Roger), Jonathan (Keri), Dana, Haley, Jessica, Adam and Lucas; her great grandchildren: Hayden, Makyla, Chase, Jaden & Layla, her brother Robert (Pat) Clarke, sister-in-laws Connie Clarke and Ninette Hughes, brother-in-law Al Duffus and her many cousins, nieces and nephews. Joyce met Marcel while attending UBC – both received their Bachelor of Pharmacology in 1949 and later married March 3, 1950. Mom and Dad settled in North Vancouver in 1955, and in 1977, mom returned to Abbotsford her home town. After a 40+ career as a pharmacist in Vancouver and later in Abbotsford, mom retired in Abbotsford to enjoy square dancing, lawn bowling, traveling and visiting her many friends and family. Mom was always the person who was helping others – not only in the profession she chose, but more importantly in her way of living; always putting others ahead of her own needs. Joyce enjoyed her final years in Merritt, BC close to her daughter Marcia and family. The family is very thankful for the wonderful, compassionate care Joyce received at Coquihalla Gillis House, in Merritt. A private family ceremony and memorial will be held later – both yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice in Joyce’s name.
