We are saddened to announce the death of Joyce Colquette of Bolton, on Sunday, August 9th, 2020 at Headwaters Health Care Centre, Orangeville.  Born in Afton, Anti. Co., Nova Scotia, on November 28, 1931, Joyce was the eldest child of the late Laura Belle (Reynolds) and Leonard Taylor. She left Afton at an early age to live in Ontario where she worked in real estate and accounting until her retirement. Joyce was a very gracious lady who faced her health issues with great courage and dignity. She will be missed as a long time member of the United Church in Bolton, where she shared her beautiful voice in the choir every Sunday.  Joyce always kept in touch with her siblings ‘back home’ and loved her family dearly. She is survived by her sisters June Merriweather, Barnegat NJ: Marion Taylor, Port Hastings; Dorothy Blythe, Halifax; Barbie Reynolds, Truro; Iris Delorey, Milton, Ontario; Sandra Taylor, Antigonish; Laurel Taylor, Halifax; brothers Bryan Taylor, Elmsdale; and Darryll Taylor, Truro. She was predeceased by her husband Ron Colquette, sisters Karmel Taylor, Lynda Koile, Heather Voorhees, and infant brother Czerny Leonard Taylor.

During our lives in Bolton there have been a few great ladies that enriched the lives of many of us: Joyce was among them. She loved to sing and poured herself into each performance. As a. Christian, she walked the talk. She was smart, courageous and gracious, a potent combination. My late wife Joan and I considered it a privilege to be her acquaintance. The heavenly choir has just gained a heavenly soprano!

I would like to offer my condolences to Joyce’s family. I was a coworker of Ron’s and although I didn’t know Joyce well, I will always remember Ron talking about her. The last time I saw Joyce was shortly after Ron’s passing. Dave Leko and I sat and talked with Joyce at her kitchen table for a couple of hours. She was a very pleasant women. Again my condolences.
