My sweet Auntie Joyce; she was the sister of my daddy, Glenn Ernest who too, was an identical twin to his brother, Gordon. She is now in heaven with all her brothers, sister and parents! Auntie Joyce was ALWAYS a joy to talk to and so full of life, always ON THE GO....I think I inherited that from her and my Daddy! My heart is broken that you are gone, but joyful that you are with our Lord Jesus Christ. My love and prayers to all my family. XO Tina

What a lovely lady was Miss Joyce! I truly enjoyed visiting her. I loved her thoughtfulness, "thankfulness" and adventurous spirit. She was always curious and wanting to learn. She loved those new babies of hers too! Loved the babies! I will miss her and all the stories of her life! She loved her family and truly appreciated Judie's never-ending help.
