With quiet grace, as she lived her 88 years of life, Joyce passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side. She is survived by Harry, her soulmate and husband of 68 years, their four children and their spouses Paul, Dave (Phyllis), Scott (Nicki) and Joanne (Pete Kehoe). She adored ‘her darlings’ – grandchildren Graham, Fraser, Britney, Emma, Trish, Nicole, Colin, Ben, Olivia, and Kellen and eight great grandchildren. Joyce will be dearly missed by her sister Barb Dagg and was predeceased by her brothers Murray and Clinton Shaver. Special Auntie, second mom and cherished friend to so many including lifelong friendships with her ‘poker girls.’
Family was at the heart of everything Joyce did from impromptu ‘grandma days’ to her exceptional ability to set a few extra spots at the table, to life lessons such as treasuring the small moments and the undeniable fact that butter and salt makes everything better. Joyce didn’t just say she loved us, she showed us through countless selfless gestures.
We will honour Joyce’s wonderful life on Tuesday, June 28th from 2-4 and 6-8pm at Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St, in Dundas. This will be an opportunity to come together to celebrate the extraordinary person that Joyce was and to share in the beautiful memories that we all have of such a gentle, caring, and thoughtful person.
Her family would like to thank those who have been such a source of strength and support to us. Your thoughts, love, visits, food and hugs have meant so much. A special thank you to Evelyn Woart, our angel caregiver who provided Joyce with such comfort over the past year.
Beautiful soul , she will be missed. Xoxo our love and prayers to all of you xo

My deepest sympathy to all the Shaver and Roung families. I have had the pleasure of knowing Joyce for ever–as neighbours, public school and as a poker pal. Joyce was a lovely person and will be truly missed by all. R.I.P. my friend.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Roung Family. Joyce was a real “lady”. Always had a wonderful smile on her face. She will be missed by many.
Although I did not know Joyce in later years, in my childhood memories, she was always beautiful, fun and had a captivating smile. Those were the days when she and Harry lived in the apartment attached to the old farmhouse. The tributes from others are a testament to a life well lived.
Joyce was one of the sweetest ladies we had the pleasure of knowing. She was always impeccably dressed, and had a smile and kind word for everyone. We are blessed to have known this special lady.

A very special lady, special families.
My sympathies and condolences to the family. Joyce was a remarkable woman inside and out. I have so many cherished memories of “Auntie” Joyce and the family from when I was a kid. She made the Best Pumpkin Pie too.
Joyce was such a beautiful, grand lady. Although I knew Joyce most of my life, it wasn’t until many years later when Ron and I started our golf get aways at Forest with Harry and Joyce and the crew, that I truly got to know her. Her sense of family, friends and attitude towards life were an inspiration to all. She had a marvelous sense of humor and we had so many laughs. My heart goes out to Paul, Dave, Scott and Joanne. This lady will be truly missed by so many people. RIP Joyce
My love and prayers to Paul, Dave, Scott and Joanne and their families especially all Joyce’s wonderful grandchildren & great grandchildren. Joyce was a loving example of what family is and of welcoming new members in with love and grace. My first introduction to the entire Shaver family was scary to this shy girl from the city but Joyce just subtly reached out to me with warmth and understanding & made me feel so much calmer and welcome. I’ve always cherished that moment. She really was special. My heart and love is with you all.
