When I think of Aunt Joyce I think of Lauren Bacall. Such a beautiful, regal woman. So elegant. But Aunt Joyce's was real beauty was from her generous heart and soul. She took care of everyone without seeking any recognition.

I have many wonderful memories of her through my childhood. Every summer she would hold a family barbecue that gave all of us cousins a chance to see each other and stay connected. I learned to swim in her pool and the night would always end with a few of us gathering round for a spooky tale.

Because my dad did a lot of things for Aunt Joyce around the house, I frequently went with him. I would usually spend my day romping around the yard with her dog Choco until it was time for lunch and then i usually passed out on the couch in the TV room.

I was very quiet as a child and did not talk much. She never made me feel uncomfortable about that - I actually think she understood that about me.

I did not see Aunt Joyce much once I moved away from PA. She and my dad would come and take my cousin Beth and I out for dinner - which we always looked forward to. I think she knew how much we were struggling on our own and needed a good meal!

I lost touch with Aunt Joyce for a long time but when my husband passed away I received a lovely letter from her. She remarked that she too had been widowed at a very young age and that she understood what I was going through. She also took the time to tell me other things that I didn't know or realize that meant a lot to me. We corresponded for a while but again lost touch which I regret.

Aunt Joyce was a role model for me. She showed me that a woman can be strong and kind. Can stand on her own and run a business but still find time for the ones she loved.

I believe she had a life well lived and made a difference in many lives - I know she did in mine. We carry that with us and she lives on through the gifts she bestowed.

I think of you often Aunt Joyce - thank you and I love you!

What a beautiful woman both inside and out! Graceful, strong, intelligent, caring and compassionate. I am so thankful for all the wonderful childhood memories Aunt Joyce created; summers at the pool, flying in the Debonair, Thanksgiving dinners. One of my favorite memories is driving with Aunt Joyce in her car down to the boat on the Chesapeake, when the song “Moments to Remember” by the Lettermen came on the radio. She looked at me , winked, smiled, and then turned the radio up really loud . We both laughed and sang along as we enjoyed the beautiful summer day !
Thanks for all those”Moments to Remember”, Aunt Joyce!
“Lovingly”
Your niece Helena
