Joyce has always been loving and kind to me, being happy about the things that I’ve accomplished over the years. She and my mom are many of the people that shaped me into being the man that I am today

Grandparents make the world a much more secure and safer place by teaching me new things everyday and showing love for those they take care of. This is what she did throughout her lifetime and I command her for that

She will be missed by her family and friends. May she rest in peace 😢

Forever in our hearts❤️
A poem Joyce loved by Lyman Hancock

When I’m Gone

When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile

Forget unkind words I have spoken
Remember some good I have done
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun

Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day

Then forget to grieve for my going
I would not have you sad for a day
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay

And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best

Growing up on Foreht Cres. Joyce always spoke to all the kids in the neighborhood. I have fond memories on hot summers evenings being invited over to swim in her pool while she told great stories and we shared lots of laughs. Her kind heart and laugh is something I will always remember. RIP Joyce

Love,

Joyce always had a great smile, an incredible laugh, and wonderful stories to tell!
I had to smile last night when I spoke to Connor. I said I was sorry to hear about his Grandma. His response was "Thank you. We're all doing okay!" I'm sure that would have made Joyce smile!
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone.
Let me know if you need anything.
