Joyce Gray, 67
She leaves two sons, Reid and Jeffrey, and her grandchildren Andrew, Devin, and Kai. She was the loving mother of Theresa, who died in 2001.
She retired in 1997 after working for Volmer & Associates, Gannet Flemming, and Modern Continental, where she served for nearly two decades as an inspector and project coordinator for bridge, tunnel, and road construction operations across New England. Prior to that, she worked as a securities clerk for Burgess & Leith and then State Street Bank in Boston. She was born and raised in Boston.
She never tired from haggling with unsuspecting sales persons, finding a great bargain, or discovering stray cats in need of loving homes. She died after a difficult fight with a year-long illness. She enjoyed traveling, her husband, and her grandchildren. She will be sorely missed.
Calling hours will be held Saturday, Feb. 23, from 12 to 3 p.m., in Hays Funeral Home, 56 Main St., Northborough. Burial will follow in Howard Street Cemetery, Northborough.
