Joyce was known to many for her stylish clothes, hats, shoes, and accessories. She enjoyed cooking, baking, visiting any sick and shut-in member in the community. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend who assisted anyone she encountered. She was known for her sassiness and didn’t mind putting anyone to work.
