Joyce was the epitome of Southern Hospitality. She was the perfect hostess and everyone always felt so welcome in her home. It isn’t fair that she had to leave this Earth so early in life. She will be missed, but never forgotten.

Joyce was as beautiful inside as she was on the outside. We were both from the Gaston/Mecklenburg area of N.C. God brought us together as merchandisers and for that I am grateful. God bless the her precious survivors.

William, Elizabeth and Matthew,
Just remember,
... neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 8:38-39

You will see Joyce again. Until then, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

God Bless.
