Joyce Morrison Obituary


Mrs. Joyce Morrison of Lethbridge, beloved wife of the late Mr. Glenn Morrison, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Monday, January 29, 2024, at St. Therese’s Villa in Lethbridge.

Born in Vancouver in August 1937, Joyce attended Lord Byng High School and then entered the University of British Columbia where she met Glenn Morrison of Medicine Hat and began a lifelong, loving partnership. Glenn and Joyce married in Vancouver in August 1958 and moved to Lethbridge in 1960, where they raised four children and became active members of the community. Joyce loved creating things with her hands and for many years was an accomplished knitter and weaver. She and Glenn built a cabin in Beaver Mines in the mid-1970s and spent some of their happiest times there and in the surrounding area, hiking, cross-country skiing and simply puttering about. Joyce had several circles of dear friends in Lethbridge, Beaver Mines and throughout Southern Alberta. She was a devoted volunteer with a number of organizations, and especially for many decades within the church community at St Augustine's in Lethbridge.  

She was predeceased in 2022 by her husband Glenn and is survived by her children Robert (Carole) Morrison of Kingston, Ontario, David Morrison of Ottawa, Ontario, Janet (Norm) Welch of Chestermere, Alberta, and Helen (Dave) Maze of Lethbridge, Alberta; grandchildren Zachary Morrison, Alastair Morrison, Emily (Brandon) Morrison, Katie (Brandon) Fooks, Christopher (Haley) Welch, Juliet Morrison and Nico Morrison.

The family would like to thank the staff of St. Therese Villa in Lethbridge for the loving care extended to Joyce since 2018.
