“The gift that Joy Drescher gave to our community, was to live life to the fullest and not take yourself too seriously.
There is no doubt Joy was a colourful figure, who had no problem in expressing her opinion, or eclectic wardrobe.
A personality that you were instantly drawn toward, like a moth to a light, even if it was just to hear her unique laughter. Joy’s enthusiasm for life and community was infectious.
My thoughts are with her husband, family, friends and all who knew her well. Beaudesert is in mourning today.
Joy may have been the last Mayor of Beaudesert, but her community service did not cease when she left the Council chamber one last time.
A committed member of Rotary, Joy served our local community to the very end.
Joy was a fierce advocate for our region, for our people and for doing the right thing by your fellow Australian.
I will remember her fondly as a leader, servant of our community and proud Beaudesert resident.
Thank you Joy, may you rest in peace.”
