Joyce was a wonderful person with the most kind and caring heart. I've been blessed to have known her. After my husbands grandfather passing a year ago she brought our family a dinner and visited for awhile. She will truly be missed but no she is with her heavenly Father. Our condolences to the family!

Joyce has been a beautiful example to me of how a wonderful woman and person conducts herself through life. I am very lucky to known her and I know her Friendship has been a blessing to my mom (Pam Woods). Her very distinct laugh will be missed and her light will no doubt resonate with those she touched before leaving us. Prayers and thoughts for the family that smiles remembering a lifetime of memories with her soon replace the empty place she has left.

Dear family,
What precious tributes to this beautiful first cousin i’ve been privileged to read on Facebook. I was grateful to read a little more about her life on this website, too, and know that my memory was correct- I’m sure that I was present at her wedding to Keith. I was 7 but do remember a beautiful couple! All of my recollections of Joyce involve her smile and laugh and her tender love and interest in people! Thank you to her children and to Paulette especially for sharing pictures of family fun times on Facebook. May you have peace in Christ, and joy and laughter together with the tears God gives us for our use, as you keep her memory in your hearts!
Cousin Betsy Wilson Frater

Kary & Desiree - so sorry to read about your mother / grandmother's passing. She was always such a joy to be around and to converse with at the many show choir and school events. Her beautiful smile now graces heaven -- as they have yet another angel. You are in my thoughts and prayers today and for the coming days and weeks as you adjust to life without her just a phone call away.
