Practically from day one, Joyce was there in the dining hall to help me. I got to Kutztown in 2015, which meant that she got to see me grow from the new student who had no clue what was going on or where anything was, to the proud graduate that I am today. I will miss her very much.

I worked with Joyce at KU, we had a blast talking and laughing about all kinds of stuff . Although I left KU for another job I wish I had kept in better contact with her . May she Rest In Peace and raise some heck in heaven . She was the most kindest, generous and full of advice when I needed it . Thanks Joyce 🙏😘

I worked with Joyce at Aramark for a year. She was such a hard worker and a blast to be around. Her sharp wit and humor was always appreciated.

This is honestly so sad to hear😢. I was a student at kutztown and Ms. Joyce or Grandma Joyce as I would call her was the sweetest lady ever. Every time I went into the dining hall I made sure to look for her if she didn’t see me first, she’d always share lovely stories of husband, children and grand. She knew how to put a smile on my face may she Rest In Peace ❤️.

I met Joyce when I was 19 working at the college. She was one of the most caring people and she wasn't afraid to yell at me when I needed it. We remained friends over the years and I was lucky enough to have her at my wedding 20 years later. She will always be remembered and missed.
