Celebrating the Life of Joy — (Lilian) Joy Billingham, Life Member

 Joy was a very active member of The Leprosy Mission’s Taree Auxiliary in NSW for almost 50 years, until her recent passing. Over her time with the group, she served in many roles. These include Secretary for 18 years, Assistant Secretary and Vice President. She was a willing and eager ambassador for the Mission throughout the Taree region, assisting the State Director in visiting churches, local shows, and encouraging new supporters. Joy took part in fundraising activities along with her husband Alwyn. Together they would set up and then clean up after events. They would serve in the kitchen and generally help out wherever needed. Joy was awarded Life Membership in 2010 for her then 37 years of active service with the Taree Auxiliary. Please join with us in honouring the life and friendship of (Lilian) Joy Billingham. We give thanks to God for Joy’s dedication and commitment to serving people affected by leprosy. Please keep Joy’s family, friends, and fellow auxiliary members in your prayers.
