  4. Joy was such a special part of our lives. We have so many happy family memories. She brought a smile to the face of all those who met her, with her sense of humour and sharp wit. She was truly inspirational in the way she met life’s challenges, with dignity and courage. I am so happy I could recently share so many morning coffees and chats. I will miss you so much.xx

  8. Such a beautiful service to remember a lovely lady. I’m honored that I got to attend all the way from Canada. I’ll never forget her wonderful hospitality when I was in Australia as a young girl. Joy was so funny, thoughtful and kind, and yes, asking me what I wanted for dinner before my eyes even opened in the morning!

    Sending my love to you all.

  10. Auntie Joy,

    The name says it all. She was so kind to everyone who descended on the house in St Mark’s Road and I will always remember the fun we all had. The food was wasted on me as I was such a fussy kid but she was happy to serve me up a cheese and sugar sandwich despite her culinary better thoughts. We’re so glad we made the trip to Melbourne last year and met her and all the family. Thanks so much for sharing the funeral proceedings with us, we cried and we laughed as I’m sure she would have wished. Our deepest love goes to all of you. Steve & Sarah

  13. Some memories from her great grandsons Lindsay and Julian:
    She always had the best cookies in her tin and she always let us have one (or two).
    We always got to play in her garden.
    She was funny and kind.
    She always had a smile on her face.

    Joy was a remarkable Matriarch — she knew how to keep everyone’s spirits up. I will miss seeing her make Angus and the boys laugh and hearing stories about her weekly outings with Debbie. Looking forward to a belated get together when the time is right. Sending love in the meantime.

  14. I have fond memories of seeing Joy riding her push bike around the streets of Murrumbeena all those years ago and in recent times enjoying a chat with her at Parker family events. A lovely service.

  15. Nanna Joy always had good cookies in her tin and always let us have more than one!
    We always got to play in her garden.
    She was very kind and always had a smile on her face.
    We miss her.

We will always hold close the memories of our lovely Auntie and never forget the times we spent together and the laughter we had.

  24. Thinking of you Debbie at the sad time. I never met your mother but you used to tell me some funny stories on our drives to and from choir – she seemed a lovely warm person and a strong character. Please pass on to Finley our condolences as well. I’m sure she would have flown home for her grandma’s funeral if she could have.
    Lots of love
