Joyce has been a wonderful part of my life since my early childhood days! She was my wonderful "sister" because her parents kind of adopted me. They lived across the street from us and since I never had grandparents close by, they took me into their home as one of their own. Joyce and Bill took me to their house in Midwest City as a child to stay for a week one summer. They took me camping, to the zoo, and a host of other activities. She and Bill, as well as the rest of her family, have a special place in my heart. God Bless you Joyce. Love you!

Joyce will be greatly missed by all who knew her, and I am no exception. I will forever be grateful for everyday I spent with her. She always brought a smile to my face, a laughter in my voice and owned a big piece of my heart! Rest in peace Auntie Joyce I Love You!
