This is a wonderful photo of Carole taken in her office where she was showing Senator Bumpers' wife Betty how she implemented her model immunization program for the children of Arizona. She was so passionate about her work and we really loved her! Amy Pisani, Every Child by Two

Carole was a truly wonderful person who cared for the health of all children. I first came to know Carole through my organization's co-founders, Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter and Former First Lady of Arkansas Betty Bumpers. In an effort to ensure the timely immunization of all children, Rosalynn and Betty traveled to Arizona to meet one of the greatest public health nurses of all time - Carole Joyce. Her programs became models for the rest of the nation and I'm so blessed to have become acquainted with Carole over the thirty years that I have worked with our organization.

Rosalynn Carter and Betty Bumpers thought the world of Carole and spoke of her tireless work for children often.

When I moved from Washington, DC to Waterford, Carole reached out during one of her trips here and brought me to lunch at Muddy Waters, filling me in on all things New London/Waterford.

I prayed for Carole through her health battles and just emailed with her two weeks prior to her passing when she was very upbeat about her new medications and hopeful for some brighter days ahead. Alas, she is now in the brightest place, with the Lord, whom I'm absolutely certain welcomed her with open arms for her service to the children of Arizona, and the entire nation. Carole will be sorely missed by many in the immunization world.

It was my hope to pay my respects in person during the service, but completely understand the private service. With all my warmest wishes for Carole's wonderful family - Amy Arbuckle Pisani, Executive Director, Every Child by Two
