Joyce was the youngest of eight children and as the baby of the family was taken everywhere she needed to be and then after being married to Earl he continued to chauffeur her around so Joyce never took up driving, this also led her to be a homebody. She loved tending to her house and family, she enjoyed doing jigsaw puzzles, quilting, doing cross stitch, and reading.

There will be a Celebration of Life held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Bond-Mitchell Funeral Home.
