Enid Joy Wakefield

February 6, 1930 – October 25, 2018
Enid Joy Wakefield (nee Oldfield) was born on February 6th 1930 in Toronto, ON and passed away on October 25th 2018 in Ladysmith, BC.

Joy was predeceased by her husband, Ron (2011). She is survived by three sons, Philip (Valerie), Derek and Robin (Molly) as well as seven grandchildren, Kyle (Olanda), Logan (Lauren), Christopher, Brandon (Haley), Geoffrey, Marcus and Marissa, and three great grandchildren, Ryder, Zoey and Maya.

Joy had a love for the theatre. Although not one for the stage herself, she spent many hours doing make up, costumes and props for the Belfrey Theatre in Victoria, Nanaimo Theatre Group and Yellow Point Theatre Group, and acted as treasurer for many years for the latter.

Joy’s artistic flair could be best described as “quirky” whether it be her handmade bird houses, eclectic gardens or handcrafted caricatures.

Joy requested that there be no formal celebration of life. Rather, donations can be made in her name to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – BC and Yukon.
