Joy was a dear aunt to me and will be missed. I did not see her very often as a child and got to know her well in the last few years. I will cherish memories of sitting at the table with her and sharing so many stories of family history. Joy did extensive genealogy work and gave me her large collection of documents and research written in her beautiful handwriting which I will always cherish. She and her husband Bobby welcomed me into their home and family and I hold dear the Thanksgivings I shared with them. She was an artist and a kind person with a good heart, and will be missed by friends and family. Thank you for your kindness to me aunt Joy, and for just listening. Sylvia

Joy was my favorite aunt, my dad's only sister. As a child I loved her visits to Florida. She would let me look at everything in her purse. For some reason that was a big deal. I still have a poem, written on the original paper that she helped me write about my new dog. So many memories. I love you Joy. Rest in peace in God's loving arms.
