Joy Goodway – 1931-2018
Born Muriel Joy Roscorla, Muriel just didn’t seem like the right name for her. We all know her by Joy and she certainly lived up to her name as she spread joy to all around her. She was raised in Cornwall with her three brothers, Bernard, David & Desmond, and I’m sure this was part of why she was a “no nonsense, get it done” kind of women.
As a young women Joy found her passion and calling and trained as a nurse and midwife. Dennis met Joy at a dance in Birmingham when he heard this beautiful Cornish lilting accent amongst the babble of brummie accents. It was love at first sight, three weeks later they were engaged, and the rest is history spending an amazing 62 years together.
