Obituary of Joyce Caroline Webb

Joyce Webb (91), Tangier NS- Joyce (May) Webb passed away peacefully on August 26, 2022 at Harbourview Lodge, Sheet Harbour, with family including her cat, Missy Valentine, by her side. Joyce was born on September 2, 1930 and raised in Tangier, Nova Scotia by her beloved Gram (Sadie MacDonald). After High School Joyce attended Normal College in Truro and then taught in Pleasant Harbour School, Nova Scotia. She later was employed at the Registry of Deeds. Wanting to raise a family she turned her attention to being a stay at home mom and community leader. Joyce was a life long member of Holy Trinity Anglican Church serving on the Altar Guild, ACW, Church Council, Church Hall manager, along with teaching hundreds of girls in Junior Auxiliary (JA). In later years she took on the project of organizing Christmas shoe boxes for the Mission to Seafayers. Joyce also served on the Board of Duncan MacMillan Nursing Home/Harbourview Lodge and was an active member of the Palliative Care Association. She also fundraised for a variety of charities throughout the years including Canadian Cancer Society and Heart and Stroke. Her volunteerism did not go unnoticed receiving Volunteer of the Year from HRM in 2007. One of Joyce's passion, besides baking, was her love of politics. She lived for political debates and worked tirelessly on numerous political campaigns for all 3 levels of government. She was a life long member of the Progressive Conservative Party of Nova Scotia. Left to mourn is her daughter Jean (Scott Clarke), step-granddaughter Nicole Clarke, and great-grandchildren Maddison and Alex along with her special cousins Will (Nancy) Mason and Ken Mason; brother-in-law Ray (Rita) Webb; and sister-in-laws Elaine (Duncan) Mason, Stella (Phillip) Boutilier, Patricia Boutilier, Cecelia (Louis) Boutilier, and Helen Webb.
