Joyce was our neighbor. And my husband’s “swim mate” at the Rec Center. Her bright smile and indomitable spirit was her trademark. And her beautiful bright blue eyes. She was an amazing, impressive person, and will be sadly missed at our annual block parties, and just a passing wave so often!

Shirley:
My deepest condolences to you and your family on the loss of your mother. She was an amazing woman and incredible force in this community. It was an honor to have known and worked with her when I was at the United Way.

Please accept our deepest condolences on the passing of one of the greatest ladies we ever had the honor and privilege to call our friend. I met Joyce when I joined the Junior League of Dayton and then really got to know her when I worked on her first campaign. Throughout her life she was totally unstoppable - nothing deterred her from doing the right thing and the pursuit of justice. My husband and Centerville School Board Member, David, was proud to work with her as a fellow elected official - for the benefit of the citizens of our community and the students in Centerville City Schools.
I will miss Joyce's smile and her beautiful blue eyes - but her indomitable spirit is with us forever.
With love,
Jenni & David Roer

Joyce was an amazing friend, leader and role model - always enthusiastic, positive, well-informed and caring. She gave so generously of her time to her community both in public and community service roles. As a former elected official, I have always admired Joyce as the very best a public servant can be. She and Fred, with whom I served in the Ohio House of Representatives were Dayton treasures.

Joyce was one special lady. I met Joyce on April 1st, 2020. Being with her3-4 days a week, we made a great friendship.
Joyce was funny and up beat. She and I spent a lot of time talking about a variety of topics.
I will miss my new friend, but I will never forget her.

Joyce and Fred were wonderful neighbors when we moved to Dayton. Joyce introduced us to people who were equally welcoming. She was always positive and ever so independent. We had fun entertaining when Shirley got married, and Joyce and Fred did the same for our daughter later. We still talk about the the toasts and the desserts.

Joyce was a woman who really cared. I will truly miss her smile and support. She was always my champion as well as a champion for so many women in the community. She was a powerhouse disguised as a true lady. I will miss her as will all the people who knew her.
Love to the family.
