Jocelyn “Joy” Nuestro

September 25, 1961 — July 28, 2022

Jocelyn “Joy” Nuestro passed away on Thursday, July 28, 2022 at the age of 60 years. Joy, as her name implies, brought joy to the world. Like Fa Mulan, one of the many beloved characters from her cherished collection of Disney tapes, she was the epitome of a warrior throughout her life. Nothing in this world compared to Joy’s empowered beauty. As a crowned winner of the Easter Beauty pageant in her adolescence in Hong Kong, she earnestly prides herself in telling this story to her daughters to remind them of how beautiful they are. She was the most kind-hearted, caring and generous soul that you could ever meet. Joy will forever be in our hearts.

Joy is survived by her husband, Avelino Nuestro; her daughters, Stephanie, Monica, and Katelyn Nuestro; as well as her three sisters in Canada alongside family in the Philippines.
