Prayers for your family. I was one of the Senior Transportation drivers that picked Joyce up. She was a very sweet lady who used to pray with me. I'm sorry I missed the calling hours.

We're very sorry for your loss. My kids and I very much enjoyed Joyce as our neighbor for 5 years. We enjoyed helping her out when she needed it. My son would help her with groceries and my daughter loved to go visit and play dirty marbles with her and pet the kitties. She texted me as we loaded up our donkey and goats. She was in tears watching them leave. She would ride her scooter over to pet and feed them when the weather was good enough. She enjoyed watching them play. My German Shepherd would follow my daughter over and lay on the back porch until it was time to leave. Joyce was a very sweet and kind lady who loved the Lord. She will be missed. May she walk again pain free amongst the angels.
