Accamma, Joy GEORGE

It is with great sadness that our family announces the

passing of our dear mother, Accamma, in her 82nd year,

on Monday, October 4th, 2010 with her family at her side.

Accamma was suitably called Joy by her family and many

friends.

Joy is predeceased by her cherished parents, beloved

husband, & eldest sister. She is survived by older sister

Annamma, younger brother Oomen Chacko, daughters,

Betsy (Dr. Nandakumar), Rebecca (Richard), Susan,

Georgia (Ron), and treasured grandchildren Stephen,

Skyler, Jonah, Jazlyn, Rebecca, Mathew, Sarah & Julian.

Joy was a proud Nursing graduate of Christian Medical

College in Vellore, India (1950-1954). Joy and her young

family immigrated from Kerala, South India to Kingston

Ontario in 1967, where she worked as a Registered Nurse

at the Kingston General and Psychiatric Hospitals. Upon

the sudden death of her husband, she joined her daughters

in Ottawa, Sooke, & fi nally Montreal.

Joy made fast friends everywhere she went. Her wit,

sense of humor and fun endeared her to many. She led

a happy, grateful life and we will forever miss her. Our

gratitude is extended to her many Sooke friends and Dr.

Dan O’Connell for his exceptional care and friendship. A

beautiful funeral service was held in Kingston Ontario on

October 9th, 2010.
