RICHMOND, Joy (née BREFF)
Peacefully, after months of a courageous fight against cancer, Joy, at the age of 76, passed away at home on Wednesday, October 10, 2007. She was predeceased by her parents, Joseph and Doris BREFF of New York. Joy was deeply adored by her husband Alec. She is survived by him and by two most loving daughters, Susan of London and Nina (Martin ROSS) of Toronto, as well as two granddaughters, Hannah and Isabel who truly loved their dear grandma. Also survived by sister, Gail, sister-in-law Judy, nieces Sharon ZANE, Caroline GOODMAN and Jill BRANDES and a special cousin, Marilyn RABIN and their families, and many other Friends who have been so kind always and particularly during her illness. Joy was born in New York and soon after graduating from University of Michigan, while on a holiday in the Adirondacks, met her husband to be and within 28 days of that meeting, they were married. Skeptical Friends were sure the match would not last. They were very wrong. It lasted over fifty two years. As soon as she was wed, Joy moved to London and spent the rest of her life enjoying that city. With her high spirits, sense of humanity and delightful sense of humor, she made many, many Friends. She did not sit still. Almost immediately after arriving in Canada, she became involved as an actress with the London Little Theatre and joined various clubs such as Hadassah of which she early became president. She was a devotee of theatre and musicals at London's Grand, and in Toronto, New York, Stratford, Niagara-on-the Lake and on. With Friends she loved playing bridge and Canasta. She also was most enthusiastic about travel and spent time in many countries of the world, both exotic and otherwise. Once her daughters had grown up and flown the coop, she went to work as a travel agent, one who insisted on getting the best for her loyal clients. On her behalf, her family wishes to express deep appreciation to all of the devoted and caring medical staff at Victoria Hospital on Commissioners. Sincere thanks as well to Medical Priorities, Victorian Order of Nurses and Community Care Access Centre. Donations, if any, would be much appreciated by the Canadian Cancer Society. Funeral Service will take place at Logan Funeral Home, 371 Dundas Street (between Waterloo and Colborne St.) on Sunday, October 14, 2007 at 3 p.m. and will be conducted by Rabbi Joel WITTSTEIN of Temple Israel. Interment Restmount Cemetery. Online condolences can be expressed at www.loganfh.ca A tree will be planted as a living memorial to Joy RICHMOND.
