Obituary for Joyce Enid Benville

Joyce Enid Benville Nov. 2, 1930 ~ Sept 19, 2020

Joyce was born in Maple Ridge, daughter of William and Violet Murray. The family moved to Port Coquitlam when she was a small child. She had one sister, Audrey, who pre-deceased her. She and her husband, Ed, also a District 43 teacher, made their home in Port Moody. A beloved primary teacher, she spent her entire teaching career within the Coquitlam District.

Joyce was always interested in the politics and events of the Tri-cities area. She supported the High Schools’ plays and musicals. She attended many recitals and dramas at the Vancouver Playhouse. She and Ed both loved travel and spent summers visiting our world. She continued to travel even after Ed’s passing. When no longer able to travel, she and her cat spent happy hours by the windows or on the sunny patio of her seaside home, either reading or watching life on the inlet.

Joyce, who enjoyed dining out, was no slouch in her own kitchen either. She could make a cheesecake to die for and her legendary Christmas puddings (made a year in advance and fed regularly on sherry) were without peer.

She is being sorely missed by her many friends.

I worked with Joyce at Vanier Elementary in Coquitlam and she was such an excellent teacher and friend. She loved her students and always thought so highly of them all.Many students just loved her.She was a very special person and will be missed.

Fond memories of the many visits made to the Benville family in Ireland by Joyce and Ed down the years. Always seeking to educate the young Joyce and Ed would have arranged numerous pen pals for us from among their pupils in Port Moody. Sadly we always let them down and correspondence petered out after one or two exchanges of letters. Then Joyce and Ed took out a lifetime subscription for me for the National Geographic magazine. That I went on to train as a geologist and to enjoy working in many remote locations around the world was, I think, a positive result of their interest and effort as regards my development. May she rest in peace.
