I was very sorry to hear about aunt Joyce passing away. She was such a kind and loving person. I have many great memories of being at the Thibodeaux’s with Alison, Valrie, aunt Joyce, and the entire family. Our prayers are with the Thibodeaux family.

When we moved back to Vinton we became neighbors with Mr. and Mrs. Thibodeaux.
I knew them both of course because Allison and I went to school together.
What a blessing to live next door to such wonderful people.
Miss Joyce and I had many backyard conversations by the fence for 8 years that we lived there.
Our son Eli was born while living next to Miss Joyce and Mr. Paul.
He was always at the fence waiting to see if one of them was outside.
Our family sends our prayers to all of the family.
Kip, Natalie, Morgan, Chanel and Eli.

So sorry to hear of your loss.
Looking at her photo when younger shows how much Aunt Joyce resembles my mom Betty.
Many prayers.

I was so sad to hear of the passing of Joyce. She was such a wonderful woman. I really enjoyed visiting with her at my 40th reunion. Will be praying for all of you as you navigate through the next few weeks and months.

Aunt Joyce was a second mother to me. I spent half my childhood in her home and never felt like a visitor. Alison, Toby, and I spent many days racing to that kitchen bar to fight for the stools and eat our corn dogs. She cut my bangs, hemmed my clothes, and loved me like I was one of her own. Aunt Joyce made life better! It’s as simple as that. Love to all the Thibodeauxs.
