I enjoyed being in the Piecemakers quilting group with Joyce as well as working at the State National Bank with her. She was an extremely talented quilter and a charming hostess when our group quilted at her home. Joyce will be missed!

Stuart and family
We were so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother.
I would meet up with her shopping and we would
talk. She and I went to school together.

Deepest Sympathy

This morning, my mom, Joyce Breaux, passed away. So, as the sun rises, so does she. She must be extremely happy to be with my dad, Gerald Breaux, and all of her other loved ones that went before. She is finally free of her confusion from dementia that has plagued her for the last five to ten years. I have been mourning her passing for a long time and happy that she has finally been set free to be with my dad. She was a great mother; Sandy Breaux Habetz and I never went without what we needed, especially love. We had the best parents anyone could hope for. Both are, and will be, sorely missed by us until we join them in Glory. May God rest their souls.
