Joyce Cozens 1927-2012

Left to right - My mother, Aunt Joyce, Aunt Ruth when they were young

My Aunt Joyce, my Mother's youngest sister passed away Wednesday August 29th at the age of 85. We had just attended her birthday party two weeks before. Since moving to Smiths Falls we have been getting to know her daughter, my cousin, Ethel who is the nearest girl to me in age. Unfortunately over the years I haven't seen my aunt that much, pretty much only at funerals but I remember that we used to visit them when they lived here in Smiths Falls when I was a kid. By the time I moved here it was too late to get to know her again. Keep that in mind people. If you want to know your older relatives, do it before it's too late.

Aunt Joyce was born in Morrisburg, Ontario, the youngest of six children. She married my uncle, Lesley Cozens in 1950 and had five children. They lived in Smiths Falls area for most of their married life.

The funeral is tomorrow.
