Joyce was born on Oct. 21, 1934 In Kinistino, Saskatchewan. She married Harold Becker and they farmed North East of Kinistino until Harold’s health brought them to Saskatoon for kidney dialysis treatments. At that time she worked at Peoples Jewelers, which she really enjoyed. After Harold passed on Feb. 19, 1979, she later moved to Prince Albert and started work at the CB store, she enjoyed dealing with the public and worked there until the store closed and she retired. Joyce was a very hard worker all her life. Having no children of her own she was very good at keeping in touch with various nieces and nephews, also her sisters-in-law Linda (Bev) Robertson and Donna (Becker) and John Christopherson. She kept in touch with the ones that lived further away by phone or cards/letters. If you were fortunate enough to live closer she was always quick to throw on a pot of coffee and made sure she would have a special treat on hand for any visitors. Joyce was an excellent cook. She also made many good friends in her apartment building and one even mentioned that she was like a second Mother to her. Joyce was a farmer Gal at heart and always talked about grain prices, weather and local crop conditions. She also enjoyed gardening and quite often looked after the common area flowers at her apartment grounds. Harold and Joyce had cats and dogs on the farm which you can tell from pictures they loved very much. Once she came to live in her apartment she enjoyed feeding and watching the birds. In her younger years , she loved to curl and had the trophies to prove it! Another hobby she thoroughly enjoyed was jigsaw puzzles. There was always one set up and on the go. Joyce came from a farm family and was the oldest of 6 children. She was pre-deceased by her parents Howard and Edna (Peever) Robertson her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Felix and Natalie (Stephen) Becker husband Harold and her siblings, Ray, Bev, Eldon, Fay and Janice. Memorial contributions in memory of Joyce may be directed to the Kinistino Cemetery Society.
