Denyer, Joyce E.

DENYER, Joyce Eileen (nee Short) -
Was born in Winnipeg Manitoba on May 18, 1928. She passed away on October 18, 2017. Her early life was shaped by living through the Great Depression and later living on the south coast of England where her community was repeatedly bombed during the Second World War. After the war, she met and married John Denyer. In 1953, their son Paul was born. During their time in England, they started and ran a successful small business. In 1956, the family moved to Canada living in Peterborough, Toronto, Montreal and later returning to Toronto. In the 1960's, she decided to finish her interrupted education and then went on to obtain a BA from the University of Toronto. After this, she was involved in Women's Associates - a company that provided Affirmative Action programs to corporations. From there she went to Work in Human Resources at CMHC. After retiring from CMHC, she and John travelled extensively outside Canada before he passed away in 1999. In 2014, she relocated to Guelph to live closer to her son Paul and daughter-in-law Kate Howitt.

A celebration of her life will be held October 29 2017 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 206 Norfolk St., Guelph. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the Alzheimer Society.
