In Celebration of

Helen "Joyce" Nimeck

April 14, 1932 -  July 30, 2018

Passed away suddenly on Monday, July 30, 2018 at the age of 86. Helen “Joyce” Nimeck, born in Pierson Manitoba, was the third child of Gordon and May Southam.
Joyce often referred to her prairie upbringing as the reason for her core values of honesty, generosity and warmth. Her motto being, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift. That is why it is called ‘The Present’.” Always positive, happy and grateful, Joyce will surely be missed but never forgotten. Beloved wife of the late Edward (Ed) Nimeck. Loving mother of Scott (Robin), Reg (Isabella) and Gordon (Vera). Cherished grandmother of Jacob, Kristopher, Isabella, Antonia and Jacqueline.

A friend of ours has left us,
On a trip without an end.
She caught God's bus a while ago;
In a minute was round the bend

Gone from our sight like the lightning's flash
Out of all earthly view
She's turned a curve on the road to Heaven,
To be lost to me and to you.

She is lost in our sight; but the voice of her soul
Remains with us forever;
Fond memories of her speech and smile
Linger on, forgotten never.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the Nimecks. Aunt Joyce loved her family. She was wise, accepting and very funny. Her devotion to her sister, Evelyn, my mum, made all of the difference in my mum's final months. She visited California four times, after my mum's health failed. She brought music, laughter and the best homemade pies into our home. We miss her. We are so lucky that she was part of our family.
