Evelyn "Joy" Armstrong passed away peacefully on Friday 14 March 2014. Joy is the mother of Tim Armstrong who is the senior technician at 96.5 Inner FM. Joy was a wonderful supporter of our station and a keen reader of our newsletter. She was a lovely lady who opened her house for our "Santa on the Boulevard" broadcasts with the Bendigo Bank tent in her front garden. Joy always made sure there was plenty of food on a card-table for the presenters and the OB crew. If you looked at the upstairs window during the Boulevard Christmas lights display, you would see a giant teddy bear which was traditionally in the window for many years. I have many happy memories of chatting with Joy and I am deeply saddened by her passing. Joy was very proud of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Our sympathy is extended to Tim, Alison and Don.
