Many fond memories of this lady that was gracious and kind to a young man in college and rooming with Bruce. Much love and fun from Joyce are the best memories.

So many memories of this sweet lady!! She was such a blessing. Always kept us laughing. She inspired me to be a better Christian. She was an absolute joy,.

She would tell us she had to put on her lip lard.
She was a precious friend who I dearly loved.

Prayers for you and your whole family.

Bruce,
I did not know your mom. But I do know the son that she raised and the impact he had on my life. I am praying for peace and sweet memories to be with you and your family.

Where to begin....
I can’t remember exactly how we became buddies but we clicked. Trips to Canton were a highlight as well as golfing outings to Calloway.
Card playing nights and our girls Christmas nights.
Whenever Joycie was there, you could count on stories, tales, and laughter—-lots of laughter.
She would do anything for you if it was within her power. Such a big heart.
Then I had the pleasure of working with Mewbourne Appraisals which was another adventure.
I will always remember her with a smile and look forward to our reunion again.
I love you Joycie
