As a PC in market 144 Joyce and I would always meet up on Zoom calls and personnel meetings. Joyce was a joy to work with. One thing I know for sure is Joyce loved her family dearly. She was looking forward to retirement and enjoying her husband, children and grand children. God bless the family and keep her legacy alive. Miss u WAL-MART #5196

Joyce was the first person I met when we moved to MS almost 10 years ago. She was sweet, kind, and very knowledgeable in her job. You will be missed. Until we meet again, God speed.

Always In Our Thoughts, Forever In Our Hearts
Ms Joyce had a heart of gold. I will miss our conversations about day to day life.
Ms Joyce was a perfectionist when it came to her work.
Ms Joyce was my personal counselor. When a major event, wether personal or work related,
she was there to listen. She never judged and never repeated.
Ms Joyce was a kind soul that I am blessed to have been acquainted with and will miss dearly.

To the family
My deepest condolences.

As a mother, wife, and daugther Ms. Joyce has truly been my Rock these last 4 years.. When I came to Walmart in 2011 she told me I would return. I returned in 2013 we laughed about it.. I had a family emergency in 2015 & fax her my resignation she called me & told me I could NOT quit I had enough hours to qualify for FMLA.. AND SHREDDED MY RESIGNATION AS WE WERE ON THE PHONE. In April of this year I did it yet again & I Heard the shredder again. she made some calls yet again. And called me later that day said call n tomorrow & Whenever u need your ok. She would call me just to check on things... She loved her job & family... So much ... She help me deal wit so much... The conversations & hugs will truly to missed...
Gone from our sights but never from our Hearts.. ❤ Family keep your head held high for God will be our Strength. Amen

Joyce was always there when anyone needed her. I would call her just to vent and always felt better after I had talked to her. We always had fun when we rode to meetings together. Prayers for her family. I am so sorry foryour loss.

Aunt Joyce welcomed my dad and I into the family over 30 years ago when my dad started dating her sister Jeanne. I was already in my early 20's, but she made sure that I felt like I belonged. She had the warmest smile and an infectious laugh. Now her smile is lighting up the heavens.
