Joyce enjoyed going to church and spending time with her church family. Joyce was a committed follower of Jesus Christ. She left a legacy to her family of Gods amazing love and grace and was an example to all who knew her. We look forward to the day we are reunited in heaven. Joyce also enjoyed doing floral arrangements and spending time with her family.
