    Joyce was my friend, and so is Lolita. She spent many hours at St. Luke’s receiving her treatments, and we became very close. I will miss her, i even had her phone number memorized from all the times she called. she was a fighter, never a quitter,she loved her family dearly, and I admired her so. Always talking lovingly of her family and friends. Joyce taught me a lot about horses and how to grow okra, which I am sorry she did not plant this year. And of course she also taught be about KU BASKETBALL!!! will always love her dearly, and she goes to rest in a much more peaceful pasture.

    Joyce was my cousin by marriage to my Uncle, Keith Sorenson. She was the sweetest girl I ever knew in Kansas and visited my mother in the hospital when Mom developed Leukemia. My family will never forget her kind and generous spirit.
