Joyce Pyne

October 18, 1928 - November 10, 2020

|

We regret to announce the passing of our wonderful and loving mother/grandmother, Helen Joyce Pyne, on Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born October 18, 1928, in Donkin, she was the daughter of the late Lauchie and Margaret Ann (MacPherson) MacKinnon.

Best known as our social butterfly, Joyce did not have a few close family and friends she had many and loved them as dearly as they loved her. She enjoyed volunteering with the Community Fair and the Home and School in Mira Ferry and was a member of the Albert Bridge Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary and the ladies dart league. She is survived by her daughters, Cpt. (Ret’d) Florence Pyne (Brian Butler), Marion (Ron) MacNeil and Sara Pyne; sons, Kenneth (Trudy Peters), Chester (Jackie), Clarence and Keith (Charlotte); 22 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

Joyce was predeceased by her husband, Chester; son-in-law, Donnie MacDonald; and great-grandson, Vinny. The last surviving member of her immediate family, Joyce was predeceased by 16 siblings.

Due to Covid restrictions, a graveside service was held in Riverside Cemetery, Horne’s Road. A celebration of life will be announced when we can gather safely.

Memorials may be made to the Hospice Palliative Care Society of Cape Breton County or to a charity of your choice.

Words of comfort can be sent to the family at www.sydneymemorialchapel.ca or e-mail sydneymemorialchapel@ns.sympatico.ca

Joyce Pyne and her cinnamon rolls will be greatly missed.
