Joyce Shortland, Mum to Jackie, Ralph and Linda, Wife to her beloved John, has passed away at the age of 90 years.

Joyce was also Nan to five grandchildren and Great Nan to 8 great grandchildren.

Joyce worked in a variety of jobs during her working life, the last of which was as a shop assistant for Sainsbury's before taking retirement.

Joyce had been a volunteer at a drama group for adults with physical and learning disabilities; often being called upon to make costumes due to her amazing needlework skills.

For a number of years Joyce had also been a volunteer at her grandsons primary school, where she listened to children read. This bought an immense amount of pleasure to Joyce, and was a role she continued to enjoy until she was 83 years young!

She will be sorely missed.

I am a day late Mum .....sorry! I just didn't feel too good yesterday so didn't do this. I have the flowers by your photo though!! I think of you everyday and miss you very much. I was thinking of you again on Mother's Day yesterday as always. it's so hard. I'm so pleased you're not here though with all this Covid around and I would not have coped not being able to see you and give you a big hug and kiss. So although I am sad you're not here with me anymore, I know you are with me in my heart all of the time. Love you XXX Lin XX

You'll never be forgotten
That simply cannot be.
As long as I am living,
I'll carry you with me.
Safely tucked within my heart,
Your light will always shine;
A glowing ember never stilled,
Throughout the end of time.
No matter what the future brings,
Or what may lie ahead,
I know that you will walk with me
Along the path I tread.
So rest my angel, be at peace
And let your soul fly free.
When it's time I'll join you there
For all eternity.

With all my love on what would have been your 94th birthday.
Love always

Lin, Simon and Dan xxxxxxx

Dear Mum

I believe your spirit is still with me
You send me signs to show me
I sense you, but I can't see you
I feel you but I can't touch you
I perceive you but I can't hear you
Your home is in my heart
Even though we are apart
You're always there within the air
Your spirit is everywhere
Thank you for being with me

Three years ago today and I miss you so much.

Remembering my very special Mum
xxxxxxxx

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and a picture in a frame
Your memory is a keepsake
and which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart.

Thinking of you especially today Mum on what would have been your 93rd birthday.

I love you and miss you so much

Love always

The second Mother's Day without you here. What comforts me is that I know you are in a better place and that you are with your beloved John and Jackie.

Thinking of you on Mother's Day Mum.

God looked around His garden, and saw an empty space,
He then looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face,
He put His arms around you, and lifted you to rest,
God's garden must be beautiful, he only takes the best.
God knew you were suffering and and a cure was not to be,
So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered come to me,
With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you slip away,
Although we loved you dearly, we knew you could not stay.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

We miss you so much and think of you everyday, but especially today on what would have been yoiur 92nd birthday. We love you and miss you.

Love always, Lin, Simon and Dan xxxxxxxx

You are missed more and more each and every day.

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and a picture in a frame
Your memory is a keepsake
with which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
We have you in our heart

Rest in peace Mum. We love you
