Phelps, Joyce RN (Kuiper)
Peacefully on September 21, 2014 after a courageous battle with Alzheimers disease, Joyce passed away at the Woodlands of Sunset. Loving wife of 54 years to Jim, beloved and devoted mother to Vicky (Steve), Gary (Jackie) and Jeff (Lisa). Joyce’s grandchildren were her pride and joy…. Missing her always and forever are Lucas, Avery, Jakob, Matt, Zoe, Nick, Carson, Isabella and Walker. Joyce is predeceased by her parents Leo and Besty Kuiper and sister Tina. Joyce was a graduate of the Mack School of Nursing (1959). She enjoyed traveling, gardening and bird watching. Joyce often shared her love of the opera and ballet with her grandchildren and friends. Most will miss her smile and laughter as she spent time with family and friends. Heartfelt gratitude to the staff of The Woodlands of Sunset and Dr.Ali for their loving care. In keeping with Joyce’s wishes cremation and a private family gathering has taken place. Donations in memory of Joyce to the Niagara Chapter of the Alzheimers Society would be appreciated by the family.
