Joyce M. Gorman

The St. Albert family is deeply saddened by the passing of Joyce Gorman who passed away on Sunday.  Joyce was a St. Albert Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma.  The Gorman's and their 70 year marriage have been a staple in the St. Albert community for decades and Joyce will be missed.  Please say a special prayer today for the repose of Joyce's soul and please keep Joyce & Jim's family in your prayers at this difficult time...

Eternal rest grant unto Joyce o' Lord: And let perpetual light shine upon her.

May Joyce rest in peace. Amen

May Joyce's soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed through the mercy of God our Father rest in peace. Amen
