    I worked with her for many many years. She was a very sweet and kind lady. PLEASE call people you know and tell them how much they changed your life for the better. We never know when it will be our time to leave this earth!

    Ashley and Family, You are in our thoughts and prayers. Ashley and Haley went to school together. They started out in pre-school. Joyce was always a lovely and gracious person. We last spoke at the girl’s graduation. May she rest in peace.

    I was shocked to hear of Joyce’s passing. She was such a great friend growing up together in “THE VILLAGE”. My deepest sympathies to all of the family.
