Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE - Annie Perets

MONTO’S com­mu­nity has been shocked at the death of beloved res­i­dent Joy Hill.

The mother of five sud­denly died on July 5 from health com­pli­ca­tions.

Her sis­ter Ann-Ma­ree Hill will re­mem­ber Joy for the hap­pi­ness she brought to oth­ers.

“Joy was a lov­ing, car­ing sin­gle par­ent who went out of her way to help any­one,” Ann-Ma­ree said.

“Her life was based around her love for her chil­dren and her love for an­i­mals and her pas­sion for her work in aged care.

“Joy will be re­mem­bered for not only lov­ing her fam­ily, but for al­ways be­ing will­ing to go above and be­yond to help those in need.

“With this in her heart is what made her a lov­ing per­son with a heart of gold.”

Trib­utes have flowed from the com­mu­nity, with words of con­do­lence passed to the fam­ily.

Mea­gan Eller­ton said: “In these mo­ments of loss, words are use­less.

“Sin­cere con­do­lences to the fam­ily griev­ing an im­mea­sur­able loss.

“May good mem­o­ries of your mum, sis­ter, daugh­ter, friend bring you com­fort in this sad time.”

Just over a week prior, Joy made a post ask­ing for ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est in a Debu­tant Ball for next year.

A Go Fund Me page has been set-up to help the fam­ily in the dif­fi­cult time.
