I met Joyce when she came to rent a room from me, close to 30 yrs ago. We became fast friends and stayed close right up until the end, having talked on her last day. She will always be in mine, and Dukes hearts for as long as we live. Love you Joyce, God heard your prayer.

Joyce always loved doing things with her family. Loved to cook for family get togethers. She made sure everyone in the family got a grandma's handmade afghan to keep warm in the winter. Even made a few smaller ones that she donated to the baby ward at the hospital. She will bye deeply missed by so many people
RIP Joyce
Love you Karen and Derek

I worked with Joyce at SPAFAS and she was a friend. She was the first person to introduce me to raw coconut! Though I haven’t eaten it in awhile that memory has always stuck with me. We would talk about her cats all the time. She loved them so much and we joked she was a crazy cat lady.
My sincere condolences on the loss of your mother and grandmother
