We met and were best friends for 39 years. I loved her so much. She will be greatly missed by our family Evan & Megan Stevens, Mason Stevens & Cayden Stevens, and myself. Joyce always helped anyone who needed it. I have never met anyone so special. Glad I could be a part of the Sevin family for almost 40 years!! RIP sister. I am going to miss our long phone calls and a truly wonderful friendship. All my love.
