For those of her family and friends from whom Joclyn is briefly separated, we share the certainty we will be reunited in the home Christ, our Lord, has prepared for us for eternity and where Joclyn now lives.
Joclyn was born in Beckingham, Kent, England to Charles and Florence Hawes. As a teen she was apprenticed to the women’s dress trade; but, when WWII came to England she worked in an arms munitions factory.
During the war she met Lloyd B. Lunde, an American GI. They were married in England in February, 1945. In May of 1945 Joclyn emigrated to the US and to Billings where she worked in several department stores in lady’s apparel until about 1978.
Joclyn will be remembered for her generosity, love and strength of character in all life’s situations. Her heart, arms and home were always open to anyone in need. She taught her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to be loving and to persevere whatever the circumstances of life. She lived by example to “do unto others as you would have others do unto you” and to share whatever you are able.
Joclyn was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd, December 9, 1985, and her brother Len in England. She is survived by her older sister Freda Ridgwell, of Halesworth Suffolk, England; a son, Charles A. Lunde of Missoula, MT; two daughters, Jocelyn (Mrs. Dennis) Gilbert of Carlsbad, CA and Antoinette (Mrs. Gregg) Deines of Laurel, MT; nine grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren as well as several nieces and nephews both in England and the US.
Joclyn is forever loved and is very much missed.
