My limited but revealing experience with Joyce Ann was with her role as a daughter to a wonderful mother, Christine. Joyce Ann was patient, attentive, faithful, loving, and encouraging in everything I saw through Christine's eyes and I admired her so much. Meeting her, I was impressed by her dignity and kindness. May the Lord encourage and soothe her family at this time.

Joyce was a very sweet lady and was always so caring and kind to me. All my prayers go out to the family, and I pray God will wrap His loving arms around each of you, and be with you during your time of sorrow. I know Joyce is with Jesus and celebrating cause she is with her Mom and Dad again, and I know we will see her again soon. God bless each of you, all my love to you all!

My sympathy to all her family and friends.

I will miss you Joyce. You always called me friend and always cared about my well-being. Me and my daughters will miss your smile. The kids will miss your caring hands. Many generations of children have passed through your care in Early Childhood Department. You will be greatly missed. Save me a place close to you and Jesus! :)

Joyce was my best friend at Kansas Newman. We went our separate ways after graduation. Today I miss her chuckle and laughter. Our sincere sympathy to Michael & family, and to Joyce's brothers & sisters. She is a beautiful memory.
