AMBROSE, Joyce
Mother, department store garment alterations specialist, life enthusiast. Born May 13, 1913, in Durban, South Africa. Died September 11 in Toronto of multiple causes, aged 94.
By Dan PROUDFOOT, Page L10
There was no telling from her pace behind her walker that Joyce AMBROSE was approaching 90 when she moved into the neighbourhood.
Like many of us, she walked her dog twice a day in all kinds of weather. This is how I came to know Joyce.
Her little terrier, Jock, had been her son's, she explained one of the first times we talked. When her son's partner died, followed by the death of her son, Joyce moved back to Toronto from Vancouver.
She had taken a room at Abbeyfield House, a residence catering to isolated yet independent individuals. I liked her immediately because she radiated spunk. Always prettily turned out, as my wife noted, whether starting a garden on the Abbeyfield grounds or inching her way up the hill to catch a bus, Joyce seemed both old and ageless.
One summer, word went around that she had turned 90. Yes, she said, she'd be happy to come to lunch. Over cold chicken sandwiches, we learned more about her.
She was South African and was deemed "coloured" under the apartheid system, she said. To escape the limitations of being labelled as such, she and her husband immigrated to England. She and her son subsequently moved to Canada. Joyce smiled sweetly as she told this story, as though what had happened 50 years earlier didn't matter much now.
What mattered, increasingly, was that she was losing her hearing. As years passed and setbacks came - Jock was put down, repeated falls left her less mobile - her growing difficulty in conversing distressed her most. Missing what was said left her unable to respond. Conversation had been Joyce's great pleasure.
She took to carrying a plastic slate and a felt-tip pen on her daily walks. As she absorbed whatever question you had written, the embers that burned within her eyes would brighten and her voice would sound as merry as ever.
Moved from Abbeyfield two years ago to a series of nursing homes, Joyce spent more and more time in hospital. She would squeeze a visitor's hand, even when unable to sit up, and her eyes would sparkle with every exchange initiated on the plastic slate.
I never knew her well. Yet those who did - Friends from her earlier life in Toronto who turned up at her various bedsides - seemed to react as I did, feeling better for the experience of being with her, as though warmed by her model.
Joyce's gaze finally lost its fire in her last days, one friend said, yet the memory of her enduring grasp of life remains as a gift for any of us who made her acquaintance.
Dan PROUDFOOT is Joyce's friend.

AMBROSE, Cherry (née BOOTH)
We mourn the loss of our dedicated nurse, eldest sister, loving mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother, dear friend and beloved wife. With her singular genius for helping others in times of need, Cherry has helped untold Friends, family and strangers at times when no one else knew what to do or say. Her genius for helping others was matched by the seemingly endless wealth of quilts, sweaters, and tapestries she used to express her love of others with colours and textures that comforted. We will miss her dearly as we move into the cold Canadian winter, for the first time on our own. Cherry is deeply missed by her husband John, daughter Robin and her husband Eric, grand_sons Martin and Daniel, siblings Jim BOOTH, Margaret BOOTH, Ann HANHAM, Heather MAHON, and Terry NEUDORF and their families. The Guelph General Hospital palliative team of doctors and nurses of 7E rose to the occasion and gave Cherry the most professional and compassionate care. Family will receive Friends at the Wall-Custance Funeral Home and Chapel, 206 Norfolk Street, Guelph (519-822-0051 or www.wallcustance.com), on Monday (2-4 and 7-9 p.m.). A memorial service will occur at 2: 00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 4, 2007 in the chapel. In lieu of flowers, Cherry requested that donations be directed to the Stephen Lewis Foundation "Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign", 260 Spadina Avenue, Suite 501, Toronto M5T 2E4.
