I got to know Joyce this past summer visiting her daughter Sue- Anna she would come out and walk her Lil dog and come talk to us she was such a sweerheart and always so kind to me, we would go get things she needed or something for lunch or her soda pop, she always was a joy to seat and talk to, she love to tell stories of the past and how things have changed, Yes she will be missed but never forgotten! RIP Ms. Joyce God Bless the Family
