Joy-Lyn Blake

December 18, 1957 — April 13, 2021

Joy-Lyn Blake, also known as Lynn Susan Valley, 63, of the state of Washington, and formerly of Gardner, MA, died on April 13, 2021 after a brief illness.

Joy, the daughter of Ann Cilley (St.Sauveur) and Norman Russell Valley, was born on December 18,1957 in Honolulu, Hawaii. She grew up in Gardner, graduating from Gardner High School in 1975.

Joy was a quick study and had a variety of jobs, enjoying the challenge of learning new things, acquiring new skills, and exploring new places. That, along with having been born with wanderlust, culminated in her joining the State Department’s Foreign Service, where she thrived doing a job she loved while getting to meet a variety of people from different backgrounds and cultures, as well as traveling the world. Joy touched many lives as she traveled through life, and will be sorely missed by her family, friends and colleagues.

Joy is survived by her mother, Ann Cilley St.Sauveur; her sisters, Carol Kinloch and Judith Rede; her brother, Daniel J. St.Sauveur; her nephew Ian Kinloch; and her niece, Abigail Kinloch, all of Gardner, MA; and by her aunt and uncle, Susan and Richard Arnold, of Portsmouth, NH.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the American Cancer Society in Joy’s name.
The family will hold a private graveside service at their convenience.
