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.

Dear Joy!
We will miss you dearly! We had such good times both in Jamaica and Canada., Our three daughters so enjoyed swimming in your pool in Norbrook on a Sunday morning and we will never forget the beautiful home which your first husband, George, built for us., We moved to Canada the same year as you did and were so fortunate to be able to continue our close friendship over the years.. May you find peace and happiness in Heaven where you belong. You will be in our thoughts and prayers always!
Lots of love, Mary and Lloyd

My brother Bill Tilly & I (Joyce Tilly McLean) were very sorry to hear of our dear cousin Joy's passing. Joy's beauty shone in her outward appearance and in her heart. Always welcoming to Bill & me, as well as to our Mom (her Aunt Annie), our Dad (her Uncle Bill) and my husband Bob McLean, she had a quick wit. She & I would always laugh as we greeted each other- "Hi Joy" & "Hi Joy" (as my family called me "Joy" too). Intelligent & truthful, she was an elegant lady. May you rest in peace dear Joy.

It is with sorrow that we have learned of Joy's passing. We fondly remember the many years of friendship we shared with George & Joy & her family - we did not have the pleasure of meeting her last family. Rest in peace, dear Joy. Our sincere condolences to Michael & Julie & the rest of the family. God Bless.
