Joylane was born November 2, 1932, growing up on the family farm in Purple Springs during the dirty thirties. Life was hard and it taught her to be thrifty and the value of hard work. She survived many health issues in her younger years. Mom was never idle and was always walking. Joylane worked at WR Myers High School as cleaning staff and later at the KFC in Taber. She always had a smile and a positive attitude. Joylane lived at the Clearview Lodge for many years which allowed her to be close to many of her lifelong friends. As a family we are very grateful to the staff there. You took great care of our mom, thank you.
Mom is at peace and has returned home to her Heavenly Father.
