Joyce McCreary died from complications of lung cancer on November 5, 2014 in Tygh Valley, Ore.
Born on March 3, 1945 to parents Bernard and Doris Idema, she was a lover of all animals, a horse trainer and a miniature wood-working hobbyist in her later years.
Always a self-sufficient person, she was willing to give up her time and effort to others in need.
Her son Alex and daughter-in-law Heather of Portland, Ore.; granddaughter Cassandra of Eugene, Ore.; sister-in-law Sylvia Idema; and neices Diana and April of The Dalles, Ore. survive.
A graveside service will be held at the Tygh Valley cemetery on November 16th at 2:00 p.m.
