Aunt Joyce was such an important part of my life. I have so many wonderful memories of her to cherish. She was always gentle and kind. She made us all feel so special and loved. I will always remember the fun we had as children swimming in her pool and spending nights at her house. I am grateful that my children were able to have so many wonderful years of knowing her and loving her! I am blessed to have had her in my life. I love you, Aunt Joyce!

Aunt Joyce, I didn't get to see you very often but I have wonderful memories of you. You were one of the sweetest people I have ever met. May you rest in peace.

My Aunt Joyce was a very special person in my life. She was the sweetest and most loving aunt you could ask for. I will always remember swimming in her pool as a child and the countless family parties at her house. There are so many memories that she is a part of. I can't imagine her not being at Thanksgiving or any other holiday event. I will miss her laughing at all of our goofy things we did or said. She always knew the best deals on QVC and loved to tell you about them.

She never ever spoke bad about anyone and loved us all so very much. She was never judgmental of anyone and showed kindness to all. She will be greatly missed by myself and our entire family.

LOVE YOU ALWAYS~Becky
