PRICE, Joyce (nee Culley). Jan 23, 1925 – April 7, 2014. Joyce lived a very full life right up to her peaceful passing at Peace Arch Hospital with family at her side. As a young girl she grew up in Dunbar and attended Lord Kitchener and Lord Bing schools. Social times with her classmates were more important than her studies. At 19 Joyce married her best friend Trevor. They spent 70 loving and adventurous years working, traveling and relaxing together. She was an artist in fabrics, music, and painting; specializing in ‘life drawings’. Her family was brought up in Dunbar along with an ever-growing group of lifetime friends called the ‘Mayfair Gang’. Joyce was active at Knox United Church and was the leader of the Hi-C Teen Group. In 1972 Joyce and Trev moved to South Surrey and much of her family followed soon after. She continued to excel humbly at painting, playing the organ, ukulele, spoons and singing in the Friday Friendship Choir. She loved to relax and socialize at ‘Camp’ on Freeman Beach, Pt. Roberts; eating crab, hunting for agates, enjoying sunsets on her deck and having her family enjoy the beach with her. Predeceased by her parents Florence and Charles Culley, siblings Lesley, Gordon and Erma. Joyce is survived by her husband Trevor, her dog Bonnie, sons John (Bev), David (Anne), grandchildren Jenni, Chris (Jacqueline), Will (Aynsley), Cassie and Lisa (Michael), great grandsons Jacob, Owen and Jack, cousin Bill Walsh and nephew Ted Culley. Joyce, Mom, Nanny, Great-nanny, we miss you and the joy you gave us. You are a model of a life well lived to all who met you. Celebration of life will be held at the White Rock Baptist Church Fri. May 9 at 1:00. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Union Gospel Mission will be gratefully received.
