Biography

Joyce STERRETT-Peace, daughter of the late William Clarence STERRETT Sr and Juanita Elizabeth Neighbors was born on October 19, 1948 in Hereford, Maryland. Joyce was preceded in death by her late husband Leroy F. Smith Sr., her sister the late Virginia Madden, her brother William Clarence Sterrett Jr. and her son Charles Curtis Sterrett. She received her early education in the Baltimore County School System and she later enrolled in an apprenticeship program at Catonsville Community College earning her journeyman’s certification in machining.

She worked for AM Machine Co. for 34 years. When she started at AM Machine Co. she was an apprentice machinist, she later became the quality control inspector and ultimately becoming Vice President.

Joyce a phenomenal woman, had an energy that was transferrable. There was never a moment that was too big or too small for her. She demanded that you rise to the occasion and never accept defeat. She made everyone feel welcome and she could put her hand on your back and help you stand up against any storm. She had an awareness about her and she could feel what you were feeling. Her conversations were timeless and she was the partner and confidant that you never got enough of seeing. She would talk to you for hours, share a meal, advice, a song and even a dance and yes a dance. Joyce could captivate the moment and help put your mind at ease or stimulate you to think carefully and calculate your next decisions with wisdom and experience as your guide. She walked with intention and her stride was unforgettable. She was a sacrificial mother, resilient grandmother, thoughtful aunt, loyal sister and a good good friend. She protected all of us without question or hesitation and she allowed us to Live and learn tough lessons when we needed them. She had the wit to make you laugh deeply and unyieldingly and her spirit was so infectious. Detailed oriented, meticulous and deliberate, in Joyce’s arms you were always secure.

Joyce leaves to mourn her husband, Larry A. Peace, her children Joyce Chester, Calvin Sterrett his wife Cresta, Larry Blackston, and Shayna Booth-Sterrett and her spouse Helena.

She also leaves to mourn seven grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren; three sisters, Harriett Capital, Clarice Gross and Anna Peace and two brothers Marion Sterrett and Robert (Ernest) Sterrett; three brothers-in-law Ron Capital, Alvin Gross and Arthur Peace and two sisters-in-law Caroline Sterrett and Cathy Sterrett, nieces, nephews and a host of relatives and friends.
