McBRIDE, Mary Joyce (External Affairs Spouse - Retired) In hospital at Almonte surrounded by the love of her family on Sunday, June 24, 2007. Joyce McCagg of Carleton Place, age 67 years. Sadly missed by her husband, Mervyn Brent, sons Phil & Ron and daughter Kathy (Gregg) Greenwood.
Her grandchildren Zoe, Franklin & Johanna. Her brothers Neil (Joyce), Boyd (Anita), Bruce (Lou) & Hugh (Margaret) McCagg. Sisters Helen & Gladys (Eldon) Hereault. Predeceased by her parents, Fred & Mary McCagg, Sister Marian & Half-Brother & Sisters, Cecil, Marjory & Melba Joyce was a brave lady who willingly traveled the world as a Foreign Service Communicator's wife, raising her children in such faraway places as New York - Lima - Accra - Brussels - Mexico & Bonn. She was a devoted wife and fantastic mother and she was a true modern day pioneer adapting to every situation. The product of her endeavors is her great children who loved her dearly.
A special thanks to her sister, Helen for all the help and
support, my brothers and their wives, Gordon & Shirley and Kent &
Juliette, also the dedicated Nurses from Bayshore Access Centre and the Red
Cross. To Dr. Dolan who devoted his time and care to Joyce and the Nurses at the
