    Joy was a caring and compassionate person. She was always checking on the welfare of her friends and her neighbours.

    Many years ago my mother came to Mildura because I was ill. Joy was very friendly and helpful during my mother’s visit and it was the start of a friendship that continued for decades.

    Even though Joy let the digital age pass her by she was a Great letter writer (which is fast becoming a lost art).

    Rest in Peace Joy.
