I remember Joyce and her sweet smile and her enjoyment of painting. She painted beautiful art work and loved sharing it with her friends and relatives. She was a loving and caring person who loved her church family.

So sorry to hear about Joyce. She was such a sweet person and such a special person. She loved her Sam and her children. I enjoyed working with Joyce for many years at Child Support. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
