This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.
The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.
The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.
In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

JOYCE PELLEGRINI (Nee CROCKETT)
August 2, 1932 – December 1, 2016
It is with profound sadness and also with the most wonderful memories that we announce the passing of our amazing mom, loving wife and wonderful grandma Joyce Pellegrini. Joyce was born in Winnipeg, MB on August 2, 1932, sharing the day with her twin sister Joan. Joyce was a secretary at Walter Woods Wholesale Hardware and later at Famous Players Theaters in Winnipeg. It was there she met and later married her loving husband of 60 years Albert Pellegrini. The newly married couple moved to Montreal where their two daughters Joan and Nancy were born. In 1962 they moved their young family to Prince Albert and settled on an acreage where their two sons Dean and Randy were born. Mom and Dad resided on their beautiful acreage where they raised their family, spending summers at Emma Lake and later years in Waskesui. Mom loved ‘the farm’…it was the site of many wonderful memories and family gatherings, a place she did not want to leave. She was a loving and kind mother, wife and grandmother who was always there for us with her quiet support and unconditional love. As we got older Mom had time to get involved in her community. She belonged to the Kinettes in Prince Albert, was president and secretary for the Cooke Ladies Golf Club and secretary for the provincial branch of the Canadian Ladies Golf Association. She was Regent and longtime member of IODE and member of the ladies Waskesui Golf Club. Mom and Dad travelled extensively over the years and saw many parts of the world. A highlight was visiting Italy and meeting Dad’s extended family. In later years they enjoyed their winter holidays in San Diego and Palm Springs where they gathered with friends and opened their house to family. We are blessed that our Mother lived a full life filled with love and family. Joyce was predeceased by both her father and mother Albert and Mary Ellen (Morley) Crockett, two sisters Dorothy MacKenzie and May Sparrow and two brothers Harry and Ernie Crockett. Joyce is survived by her husband of 60 years Albert (Ab) Pellegrini, her children.
