I will always remember Joyce Winstead. My Mother in Heaven had her hair done by Joyce until she gave up her shop to work for FCSC.
I tagged along a lot as I just loved Joyce & Howard and the girls.
I will never forget Joyce’s smile and laugh and the way she treated my Mother Maxine.
Joyce, rest now as you have earned this time with our Lord! Please know that you were an Angel here on Earth. Connie Frye 🙏🏼♥️🙏🏼

I’m heartbroken to hear that Joyce has passed away. But I’m consoled by the fact she’s in Heaven today with Jesus, her Baby Girl, Brenda, and her Mom and Dad. I’ll cherish the sweet memories of her until I see her again. I Love You Joyce.
