Joyce worked as a cosmetologist in Illinois, Arizona, and Florida.  She was a great supporter, friend, and personal confidante.  She always told the best stories – the best were the ones in which she was being ornery.  She was very competitive, winning basically everything she put her mind to.  Most importantly, she was a dedicated daughter, loyal sister, great friend, devoted wife, an astonishing mom, and an even more amazing Mawmaw.  She was deeply loved and known by many as “Mama Joyce”.  She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
