I have so many memories of Aunt Joyce! She was one special lady!! She loved all of her nieces and nephews! She also loved playing Rook with my Mom and Dad and grandparents! They are probably playing a game in Heaven! She had a love for photography and helped me to perfect my sunset pictures!
Love to you, LIsa Gilliland

We are so sorry to hear about Betty Joyce. We taught with her for many years at Riverside and visited them at home. She was a talented individual and will be missed. We are in our 70s and have not had Covid vaccine yet so unfortunately we don't feel comfortable attending gatherings.
I had tried unsuccessfully to get info from Forest Manor since Covid time began. Since I was not a family member, I was out of the loop.
We pray that her transition was peaceful.
