 Joyce Georgia (Kenny) Mackintosh was born on a farm near New Osgoode, Sask.  Her parents were George and Anna Kenny. Joyce only

weighed 4 pounds at birth.  She was always little but mighty.

   Joyce went to a country school called Goyer from Grades 1 to 8.  Her family moved to Tisdale in 1943, where she finished her education. Joyce got a job with the janitor at school and earned $5.00 a month.

   In 1944 Joyce was confirmed at St. Matthews Anglican Church in Tisdale.  

   In 1948 she went to Saskatoon where she worked with Sask Gov’t Telephones as a telephone operator and later at Star City.

Joyce met Tom on a blind date.  She married Thomas Alexander Mackintosh on October 5th, 1950.

   Tom and Joyce enjoyed travelling. For many years they had a winter place in Alamo, Texas and a cabin at Fishing Lake in summer.  

   In 2000, they moved to Nipawin where they spent their remaining years.

   Joyce was predeceased by her husband, Tom, of 72 years; her parents George and Anna Kenny; brother Neil Kenny; sister Emma Baird; sister-in-law Mary Kenny; and brother-in-law Cliff Baird.
