Although our relationship was brief, I felt like I knew you for years. You were a bright light every time I saw you, always smiling and full of energy. Thank you for our talks, and sharing your wisdom with me. You will be missed but I know your at peace and shining down on us as one of Gods angels. You left a mark on so many and everyone you touched with your friendship was lucky to share a piece of your world. Sleep easy beautiful and cover your family with protection and love from above. My condolences to the family 🙏🏽

I remember Joyce for always being so nice loving and caring. She never treated me any different even after her daughter and l marriage ended. I always respected Joyce and always have love for being apart of her family.

Josie and her family are our family and through Josie we met Joyce. We will always cherish the times that we all spent together on trips and Thanksgiving dinner. Most of all Joyce's free spirit and attractive smile will always be remembered. May you lean on one another and on God who strengthens you, to get though this difficult time. Our prayers and thoughts are with you !🙏

WE LOVE MISS JOYCE !!!!
I was so saddened to learn that Miss Joyce has gone to Her "Reward". I was one of the lucky people who worked with Joyce at Lord & Taylor at the Northshore Mall in Peabody. My 1st day was World Trade Center - September 11th 2001 a very sad anniversary date - but it as wonderful souls like Joyce Cooper that sort of took me under their wing and just made things better and more caring for everyone. I worked with Joyce and so many other great folks for about 5 years..... and there were a few years even after that where we sent Christmas Cards and were a few phone calls. WISHING I HAD STAYED IN TOUCH MORE!! Joyce & I always joked around with each other - I always told Her that she was my Wilona Woods from the TV show "Good Times"... a little pretty....a little sassy...... always funny and "hip" and just very endearing to all. In return Joyce called me "Bookman"!!! Funny memories of those special years at Lord & Taylor. It's like a stab in the heart for me hearing that Miss Joyce passed on September 11th .... that already was a hurtful memory for me and this certainly compounds it. My Condolences to the Family and all those who loved Miss Joyce, now left behind without Her wonderful presence. NEVER FORGOTTEN !! Will Always Love And Remember You Joyce Honey. XXOO
