BRADSHAW (nee Cribbes)

Joyce “Joy”

20.2.1936 – 24.8.2023

Loved wife of Robert “Bob” Bradshaw (dec).

Daughter of Joyce and Thomas Cribbes (both dec).

Sister and sister-in-law of Janice and Jim (dec), Pamela (dec), Ian and Judy (both dec), Rosemary (dec), Graham (dec) and Dianne, Suzanne (dec), Heather (dec), Nanette, and Malcolm.

Joy was a beloved sister, friend, aunt (great and great great), and a passionate gardener. Her love of plants and the outdoors was a passion she shared with us on frequent trips to the Warby Ranges, around Northeast Victoria and overseas.

Joy was a friend to many and enjoyed meeting and catching up with friends old and new.  Joy made connections with people easily; in part because of her incredible memory for family and local history.  She was involved in many community groups and her network of friends stretched from Wangaratta to the United Kingdom.

Joy was generous and caring to her family and has always been a treasured part of our lives.

Joy and her family are grateful to the wonderful staff at Cooinda Benalla whose care and interest in Joy was unwavering over the last few years.

Rest in Peace.
