Smith: Joyce Lennox
Aged 97 years, Joyce Lennox Smith (nee Moore) of Rothesay, New Brunswick died peacefully on April 25th, 2023. Born on April 14th, 1926, in Grand Bay, New Brunswick, Joyce lived in Rothesay (formally Fairvale) for 70 years where she raised 3 boys with her husband George Milton Smith. Joyce loved the outdoors, flowers, gardening, and all animals - especially birds. Joyce could be found swimming in the Kennebecasis River well into her nineties and always looked forward to spending time with the ‘beach gang’.
A member of St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Rothesay, Joyce enjoyed many years of activity with the Altar Guild and the A.C.W.
Joyce was predeceased by her brothers Harold Moore and Lewis Moore, as well as her husband George Smith (1913-1999).
