Mrs. Joyce Alice Smith

Joyce Alice Smith July 23, 1940 – April 9, 2018
Joyce A. Smith transitioned to her eternal home with Jesus on April 9, 2018 at the age of 77. Her last days were filled with love and happiness. She chose to leave on her terms, in her home with those she loved most, her daughters providing her care. When she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, she said, “I’m not having treatments.” Joyce wanted to spare all her loved ones the pain of watching her suffer through chemotherapy and radiation. Her strength was endless. She was born on July 23, 1940 in Dallas Texas to James and Fruzana Harvest. Joyce grew up in a home with three sisters, Earline, Shirley and Helen, and four brothers, Clarence, James Jr., Dennis, and Sam. Joyce was outspoken and said what was on her mind. She was also a kind, caring person who did what she could to help others. Joyce is survived by sisters, Earline Hoover and Shirley Glenn, her children Dara Stephanie Reynolds, Detric DeWayne Crow, and Kimberly Renee Smith, grandchildren Alysia Nicole Crow, Jamie Fruzana Crow, Keith Darnell Williams, great grandchildren, Christopher, Angel, Christian, Pheonix, Reghan, and a host of nieces, nephews and friends. We will miss her greatly.
