Joyce L. Bennett

Joyce L. Bennett, 64, of Mattapoisett passed away Sunday, April 20, 2014.

Joyce was a woman of many creative talents. One of her passions was cooking for which she attended courses at the Johnson & Wales College, School of Culinary Arts. She was the former wife of the late David S. Bennett of Westport. Together they operated Easy Aces, a restaurant from their home for their friends and families. When she wasn’t cooking, she could often be found happily planted up to her elbows in dirt working in her vegetable or flower gardens. Joyce had a knack for bringing beauty to everything she touched. She was never short of quick wit and humor.

Joyce did many things to keep herself busy, painting, always lending a hand to those that needed help and for a time worked at the Fairhaven Council on Aging. She enjoyed the people she met there, the assistance she provided and the relationships she formed.

Born in New Bedford, the daughter of the late Ernest and Bella Monty, Joyce spent time living in Westport, Fairhaven and Mattapoisett. Joyce leaves behind a son, Emmit Bennett; a step-daughter LeeAnn Quint; grandsons Cameron and Evan Bennett; 8 siblings Cora Baker, Linda Lavoie, Pamela Arnold, Donna Ramos, Bridget Monty, Lana Collins, Jeffrey Monty and Ernest Monty; and several nieces and nephews.

In accordance with her wishes she will be cremated with private arrangements. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to Damien’s Place Food Pantry, 3065 Cranberry Hwy, East Wareham, MA 02538.

    I had to remember not to wear mascara when I visited my sister because she had me in tears with her witty remarks and humor. She always made me her straight lady but I didn’t mind. We could have made a great comedy team. She will remain a part of my very existence. Joyce was there for every person she came in contact with in some shape or form and never expected anything in return. She was the most free loving spirit I have ever known not to mention a “jill of all trades”. My sister, my friend forever…Donna

    I remember the days back at Peter’s Pond. Watching Joyce and Linda getting ready to go to the dance hall and we were to young. There were many years that we were out of touch but never out of mind. I was blessed to be able to spend some time with her on some weekend visits to her house. It was a wonderful time filled food and laughter. Joyce was full of laughter and will be missed. RIP my cousin

  3. Although I did not Joyce that well while living in VIllage Court, I was sorry to hear of her passing. After reading about her life, it saddens me that she had such an interesting life that it came down to what I perceived loneliness while living here. My wish now is that she rest in peace.
