BRADLEY, Donelda Joy (nee HOGABOAM) - Joy peacefully passed away in her sleep, at home, on Thursday, September 16, 2021.
She is survived by a large and loving family: her husband Kenneth Bradley, daughters Janice May (Jim Campbell), Lauren Bradley (Gary Scull), Mavis Fraser (Bruce) and Sandra MacKay (Norman Roy), brother Wayne Hogaboam and sister-in-law, Irene Burd.
Happiest when in the presence of family, in particular with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Joy was predeceased by her much-loved granddaughter Nicole, brother Duncan and sisters Mavis and Dorothy.
She was born in Nipawin, Saskatchewan, then moved to Flin Flon, Manitoba, where she fell in love at first sight, and married Ken 70 years ago, which marked the beginning of their marvellous life together.
Moving around every few years for Kens' work, they experienced the best that Canada had to offer along with stints in Monroe, Louisiana and Manila, Philippines.
This led to a love of travel and adventure. Joy visited over 42 countries and enjoyed getting immersed in the culture of each destination, never one to turn down a new food experience! Our family trips to France, and in particular, her trips to Menton with her daughters, are treasured memories.
A heartfelt "thank you" to the wonderful and kind staff at The Village of Arbour Trails, Dr. Urooj Chaudry, and RN Shannon Wood.
Join us as we smile, raise a glass and celebrate a life well-lived and well-loved.
For those who wish, donations may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or The Salvation Army.
