    Thinking of you Maurie and all the family. It was such a privilege to care for Joy Belles she was such a beautiful lady and will be missed

  • Bob Meyer

    Condolences Maurie and all of your large family. I’ll always remember Joybells and all the loving that she gave to her other ‘grandchildren’. It was great to see those early photos of Joybells with her smile. Great tribute Maurie.

  • Bert & Marie Berghuis

    Joy and Maurie were lovely friends of our family. We really appreciated hearing Maurie tell the story of Joy’s life.

  • Hedley Harding

    Sad to read of Joy’s passing, when I owned the Vegie Patch fruit shop in 8th Street Mildura back in the mid 1970’s Joy was one of my favourite customers in those day’s.
    I always carried her vegies to her car and we always had a laugh together.

    My deepest condolences to Maurie and the family, she will be remembered in your heart.

  • Kasey Reed

    Sending all my love and deepest sympathy to the family. Thinking of you all during this difficult time xxxx
