Emma Joyce Partain
March 15, 1934 – May 4, 2019
On May 4, 2019, after a short, serious illness, our family lost our matriarch Emma “Joyce” Partain. She was proud to have been born in Seminole, Oklahoma on March 15, 1934. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Charles D. Partain and by her four siblings Frank Fowler Jr., Doyle “Pat” Fowler, Wanda Smart and Donnie Ray Fowler. She is also survived by her four daughters, Shelia Sherman, Charlina Cofer, Mary Holland, Becky Humerick as well as two son-in-laws, 9 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren and 4 great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Joyce spent most of her adult life the wife of a minister and later, after his death, as a loved member of her Church of Christ family. Joyce had a great sense of humor and was very proud of her large family, and was quite the social butterfly at Hy-Lond Convalescent Hospital where she resided for the last 2 years. She touched many lives in her 85 years and still communicated with many friends from years past. She will be sorely missed by so many.
