In Loving Memory of
Joy Dorothea Fullerton (nee. Knight)
March 26, 1934 - December 9, 2020

Joy Dorothea Fullerton (nee. Knight) passed away in Little Current, Ontario on December 9, 2020 with her son Michael by her side. Joy was predeceased by her beloved first husband George and loving son Anthony. She is survived by her loving son Michael (Julie), her dear second husband George Kenny and her siblings Margaret (Jim), Raymond (Penny), Winsome (Tom) and Marlene (George). Survived also by niece Patricia (Stan), nephew Matt (Laurin) and great nephew Malcolm. Predeceased by siblings Mary (Pat), Paul (Diane), Betty (Al) and Grace (Ken).

Joy was born on March 26, 1934 on the island of Jamaica to Baptist missionary parents John and Georgena Knight. She grew up enjoying the freedom of country life while bounded by the strictures of missionary parents. As a young woman in Jamaica, and then in Toronto, she worked within the banking community making many life long friends. Later, Joy would take those same skills and become the bookkeeper/accountant behind the family business.

In 1976 Joy, George and their sons Anthony and Michael immigrated to Canada, returning to the homeland her parents had left some 50 years earlier.

Joy enjoyed cooking, gardening and travelling and was always happiest with the warmth of the sun on her face. Her kind and generous nature, along with her sing song laugh and quiet sense of humour will be greatly missed by all who were lucky enough to have known her.

A celebration of life will be planned for the Spring of 2021.
