I have so many memories of Joyce. It was such a pleasure to teach her in Sunday School. She always had her own unique way of adding to any lesson. Her smile, her kindness and yes, even at times her bluntness was always welcomed and appreciated. Joyce touched so many people with her love for her Lord and Savior. Cherish your memories, rejoice in knowing that she will spend her eternal life with God and His son Jesus. She will be greatly missed by all of us who knew her and loved her. Know that Steve & I have all of you in our prayers and thoughts.
