Louste, Joyce “Joy” Alice

Joy who loved the song “You Are My Sunshine” departed her loving family on April 17th, 2021 at the age of 88 years old.  She passed peacefully in her sleep surrounded by her children who cared for her together in her last nine days at her daughter Kim’s home in Falconbridge. She leaves behind her husband of 65 years Teuvo “Ted” Louste of Sudbury. Joy was born In Callander, Ontario on August 1st, 1932 to Charlotte and Edward James. As a Nurses Aid, she worked at Cassellholme and Leisureworld in North Bay. She was most proud of becoming a certified Nurses Aid later in life. She was known for her sassiness, strength, and directness. Joy was part of a curling and bowling club for many years with her husband Ted and was a member of the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sudbury. She was a great matriarch to her children: Kim (Mike), Kathy (Paul), Carrie, Wayne (Arlene), and Wendy (Louis). Grandchildren: Danica, Jennifer, Brittany, Brianna, Kelly, Morgan, Samantha, Olivia, Jordan, Daniel, Emily, Julien, Jasmine, Jacob, Samuel, and Travis. Great Grandchildren:  Jarrett, Tristan, Isabelle, Quinton, Cordelia, Katherine, Kirsten, and Kelly. Great Great Grandchildren: Kayce, and Lilly. She is survived by her sister Ruth (Gerry) and her brother Howard (Karen). She was predeceased by her brothers Kenneth, Edward, Raymond and Robert and her sister May. A special thanks to Finlandia Hoivakoti, Maison MuCulloch Hospice, Bayshore Home Health, Dr. Presenza, and Dr. Walton. A plan to celebrate Joys Life will happen once restrictions lift. In lieu of flowers, donations made directly to the Finlandia Sisu Foundation can be made in Joy’s name. She is the light that will never go out in our hearts!

  2. Don’t think of her as gone away as her journey has just begun, life holds so many facets and this earth is only one. Just think of her as resting from the sorrows and the tears in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days or years. Think how she must be wishing that you could know today how nothing but your sadness can really pass away. And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched…for nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much.
