I will always love Auntie Joyce and will miss her terribly. I have so many family memories starting when I was a little girl doing unplanned sleepovers, being asked to be Allyson’ s Godmother at 16 years old, my wedding to Pierre and the many jokes we shared, family trips & reunions, culminating to our girls weekend last year. Because I could not be in VA to say goodbye, I will have a memorial service in her honor when it is safe in New Hampshire & Massachusetts. Rest In Peace and give Marshall a kiss and hug from me.
Love your niece, Denise

Sisters are fun. Sisters can be silly. Sisters can annoy. Sisters can sometimes feel like a maddening itch that can’t be relieved with scratching. My sister was all those things but most of all she was loving, and thoughtful, and caring about her loved ones, and was able to make friends everywhere she went. Best of all she was my big sister. I loved her with all my heart and I know the feelings were mutual. She will always be with me, in my mind and in my heart. I will miss you Joyce. My heart is aching but will heal in time. I’ll watch for the cardinal.
Love, Sharon

I loved Joyce and Marshall from the moment I met them. They got me hooked on my favorite show "Blue Bloods". I'm so happy my daughter, Kim, married Phil, and became part of their family. Marshall always had a joke to tell. Both Joyce and Marshall were real down-to-earth people and raised an awesome family. They loved each other immensely. After Marshall passed, Heidi added onto her home to be able to take Joyce in so she wouldn't be alone. Just one example of how much all of Joyce's family loved her. I have no doubt she is happy in Marshall's arms right now. Joyce, you will be missed by so many people. RIP
