It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Joyce Daschuk on May 19, 2023, at the age of 78 years.
Joyce Daschuk (nee Mocyk) was born March 9, 1945, at the Preeceville Union Hospital to Peter and Daisy Mocyk (nee Yednak). Joyce took her schooling at Shaftesbury School and Lone Spruce School. In 1964, she worked at the Golden Leaf Café for 1 ½ years. She married Andrew Daschuk in 1966, and were blessed with two boys, Dwayne in 1967 and Rodney in 1968. Years later she worked at Sturgis Meats until she was diagnosed with cancer in 2005. She survived it all until February 2022, when her cancer came back.
Joyce enjoyed gardening from planting in the spring, and taking care of it throughout the summer, to harvest in the fall. She also looked forward to pickling and canning once the garden was off. She loved taking care of her flowers, her favorite were Lollipop Lilies. Her fondest memories were spending time with grandchildren, teaching them to make perogies, cabbage rolls and various soups. Everyone enjoyed eating them.
She is survived by her son Dwayne (Tammy) of Whitecourt, AB, grandsons Karlen (Jenna) of Edmonton, AB, Cory (Brianne) of Edmonton, AB; son Rodney (Cindy) of Preeceville, SK, grandsons Dan (Shelby) of Leduc, AB, Kyle (Kathy) of Saskatoon, SK, granddaughter Kelsey (Graeme) of Saskatoon; a brother Ron (Annette) Moyck of Rama, SK; a sister Sylvia Moyck of Nelson, BC; an auntie Bernice Kropodra of Kamsack, SK; and numerous niece and nephews.
She is predeceased by her father Peter in 1996, her mother Daisy in 2003, her sister Minnie in 2012, and her brother-in-law Peter Pasiechnyk in 2017.
