Host of Family and Friends Joyce never knew that September 5th, 1935 would be a day that she would touch so many people's lives, and that she did. Her journey became complete on April 23rd, 2018. Joyce was born and raised in Barboursville, Kentucky and graduated high school with straight "A's". Before long Joyce moved to Greenville, Tennessee, where her life completely changed. Joyce married the man of her dreams, and gave birth to four beautiful daughters who were the love of her life. She dedicated her life to her family and friends. Joyce accepted Christ at an early age. She was a loyal and devoted member of the Friendship Baptist Church. Eventually, Joyce and her family had a new destination when her husband took them to Akron, Ohio (a big city to her coming from the country, but she managed). Over the years, she worked at Polksy Department Store, Patch Rubber, Isolab, General Tire, and retired in 2002 from the State of Ohio working with MRDD. Through all of this, Joyce managed raising her daughters and six grandchildren- never once complaining. Joyce was a very private person, loved her family unconditionally, and committed her life to their well-being. Joyce sacrificed so much of herself. Joyce had a heart of gold- truly a heart of gold!

She was constantly adding people to her Christmas and birthday lists. Saturday spaghetti with wieners: no matter how much you ate, the pot remained full. Sunday KFC chicken: her favorite, wings, vegetables, and fried com bread. Things Joyce loved: shopping at Macy’s, she lived at Henry's Acme, enjoyed traveling, took several cruises, loved the hotel lifestyle, being.at family functions, going out to eat with family and friends, and working in her yard planting flowers until the sun came out. Joyce also dedicated her time writing letters and calling her family just to keep in touch with loved ones.

One thing we all admire about our mother: she was a very stylish dresser and when we gave her compliments she had this turn and smile on her face you just had to see. Her two favorite spots in the house were sitting at the kitchen table early in the morning in her pajamas with a cup of coffee, eating sausage and biscuits, looking out of the window, going over her mail, reading the newspaper, or in her recliner that sat directly in front of the door so she could watch everything. Joyce was a faithful and dedicated member at Mt. Olive Baptist Church. Her life was committed to serving the Lord. Joyce was al- ways visiting people in the nursing home, their homes, or the hospital. She did any and everything she could do possible to satisfy others . Most of us know her as Nan- Nan, others call her Joyce or Miss Lollar, but to us she will forever be our mother.

In 2011, Joyce had a massive heart attack and stroke. God kept her in His arms for seven years. Though there were many obstacles, she managed to pass the test. She has been our inspiration. She left us with so much love and valuable memories that can never be replaced. We will all cherish her memories in our own separate ways.
