Joy was born at home in Barrington, Quebec and grew up in Southern Quebec and Eastern Ontario. She loved traveling, cooking, playing cards, telling people about God’s Kingdom and being with her friends and grandchildren. In her late teens Joy was drawn to a love for Jehovah and dedicated her life to him. In Cornwall, Ontario she met Earl Petersen and they were married on August 20th 1960. Together they went into the missionary field in the Maritimes. They moved back to Hamilton Ontario in 1964 and there her son was born.Joy was a beautiful, vibrant, spiritual person who loved people and would help anyone who needed it. She was an outstanding cook and cherished the time she spent with family and friends. Joy looked forward to the time when God’s Kingdom under Jesus Christ’s rule would transform the earth into a paradise. She will be happy to be a part of that paradise when her friend and God Jehovah resurrects her to live again there. She is now safe in Jehovah’s memory.
