Miriam Joy Powles
April 19, 1957 – October 11, 2017
It is with deep sadness that we share with you the passing of a dear sister, aunt, and friend, Miriam Joy.
She passed away on October 11, 2017, surrounded by family members and the loving staff at the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission, B.C.
Miriam Joy was courageous in her battle with cancer over the past eight years and taught us how to face life and its struggles with hope and faith. She drew great strength from her family, dear friends, and her faith in a loving heavenly Father.
Miriam Joy is survived by her two sisters, Ruth (Barry) Borthistle, Marylyn (Conrad) Wiebe, and her two brothers, Brien (Elaine) Powles, and allen (Suzanne) Powles, and by a host of loving nieces and nephews.
Another part of Miriam’s legacy includes her dear friends who have faithfully stood by her side over these years. We are so grateful for each one of them.
We are deeply thankful for the love and support of Christine Morrison Hospice, who gently and lovingly supported Miriam in her last weeks.
We would ask that in lieu of flowers, donations in Miriam’s memory be made to the Mission Hospice Society in Mission, BC.
