The Work Place continues to honour the life, work and difference Employment Consultant Joyce Black made for countless clients and numerous colleagues in Grande Prairie and area for nearly 15 years.
Joyce passed away on March 8, 2022, after a courageous battle with cancer. She continued to work up until the week before her passing, despite severe pain and ongoing treatment locally and in Edmonton.
Joyce was an outstanding resume and cover letter writer. She thrived on researching opportunities and coaching clients in their job search. Many found renewed confidence, hope and direction through her guidance.
Joyce will be missed as a mentor and friend by her teammates at The Work Place. She was well respected by peers with other community agencies.
Joyce was a significant part of The Work Place’s success since joining us in 2007 with a strong background in employment counselling from her work in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.
We dedicate our ongoing work to her memory and the many contributions she made in helping job seekers find new positions.
