Joyce passed away at the QE2 Hospital in Grande Prairie, Alberta on April 24, 2020 from aggressive cancer at the age of 73 years young. She was surrounded by family.
Joyce Annette (Dowalatek) Blelloch was loved by everyone. She loved all the company that would stop by for coffee. She talked about her grandchildren and loved to show off her photos of them.

She collected salt and pepper shakers from the age of 12 with a total of over 1000 pairs.
