I was sad to see that Joyce had passed although I know she had health issues. I enjoyed visiting with her in the Lit'l Peddler or outside of the store when she was out for a break. She is missed.

Joyce shopped at the store where I work. It was always a pleasure to see her come in. She wore the best smelling perfume and I always knew where she was in the store since I could smell her perfume. She was such a joy to be around. All of us who worked up front at the store loved her. She will be truly missed.
