Joyce Elaine Schoff (nee Whitman)
1922 – 2020

The family of Joyce Schoff announces that mom passed away at Mainprize Manor, Midale, SK on January 24, 2020 at the age of 97 years.

Joyce “Toodie” was predeceased by her husband Joe Schoff and her son Blaise; parents, George and Irene Whitman; brothers and sisters, Thelma “Sis”, Faye “Tadie”, Dale, Viola “Donnie”, Robert “Bobbie”, Eva “Evie” and Grace “Girlie”. Joyce was also predeceased by her parents-in-law, brothers and sisters in-law.

Her legacy consists of her children and their families, Bruce (Arleen) Schoff; Blaise’s wife Denise and their children, Jeremy, Alysha (Rylie, Braylen and Rosie) Taylor and Jenelle Schoff; Wanda Schoff and her family, Amanda Schoff and Amber (Jess) Graham; Warren (Rhoda) Schoff and their family, Christopher Parent and Josiah (Crystal) (Stellar and Bodhi) Parent. Joyce is also survived by her brother Vern (Tina) Whitman; brother in-law Ralph (Yvonne) Schoff; sisters in-law, Louise Schindel, Irene (Albert) Daniels and Aileen Schoff.

Joyce was born at home near Outram, SK and took her grade school at Dale School. Joyce was married to Joseph in 1953. Joyce had a strong faith and relationship with God which sustained her throughout her life. She was very “common sense” person with a unique sense of humor. She was notably adventurous as a young woman.

Joyce loved reading before she lost her sight. Some of her other pleasures in life were gardening, homemade preserves, baking and home-cooked meals (learned to cook lots of German recipes) and handiwork like crocheting and knitting. Gramma will be deeply missed by her grandchildren.

Joyce and her family wish to thank all the staff at Mainprize Manor for the exceptional care and love they showed to Joyce and her family.

There was a private family interment at Souris Valley Memorial Gardens. The Come and Go Memorial Tea was held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 2:30 p.m.- 4:30 p.m. at the Western Star All Suites Hotel, 303 Kensington Avenue, Estevan, SK.

There are so many memories I really can’t name all of them. Grandma had the faith of a child. She was an inspiration and just a joy to sit and listen to. She would sing songs and just talk until she was ready for a nap haha. I remember as a kid she would make us the most delicious white macaroni cheese lasagna, all of us loved it. We would all sit together in her living room and watch Mr Dress Up. She once told us of a man who showed up at her house to have tea with her and when he left he disappeared walking away off the sidewalk, she said he was an angel. She had tea with an angel. I always wished I had the childlike faith she had so I could experience the amazing things she got to experience in her life. She was one incredible lady and will be deeply missed and remembered for years and years.

My best memory is your mom singing in the nursing home. When we told her that we could see birds outside the window she sang us a song of the little birds.
