When I first joined the TD Bank in 1963 was when I first met Joyce. She was instrumental in my long career with the Bank. Joyce was on the Savings desk and taught me in many areas of banking at King & Francis in Kitchener. She was quiet and always self assured and I really enjoyed working with her.
