I met Joyce when she was driving a JCats van that I was riding to Doctors appts in Chapel Hill, NC. She and I began talking and we became friends. She introduced me to her Sister Deborah whom my children and I cherish. I met her son not long after that because she sent him to help me when I was having car trouble. All very nice and beautiful ppl. I will miss Joyce.

It is with heartfelt sorrow that I send my condolences to Joyce's son Garrett and to her entire family. She was my dear friend for over 40 years and five states. Losing her on the anniversary of my mother's passing breaks my heart. But I know they are both still with me in spirit. So I won't come to say goodbye, instead I'll say, PLEASE keep in touch.

Grace and Peace to Your Son, Peggy, Maurice and Family

We are truly sad at this hour. We loved Joyce, our cousin dearly.
Joyce was a dear sweetheart and always greeted us with a smile and ❤ love.
For the past year we talked at least once a month, shared family pictures and just texted all the time. I recall sending Joyce crossword puzzle books and a few favors. She said I was spoiling her. We had so many wonderful conversations about the good old days. She always talked about how her son took very good care of her. We talked about how our families would always visit one another on Sundays as a given.❤I am going to miss the late night talks. I just wanted her to know she had family that lived her dearly. I am going to miss you Joyce. Gabriel and mother got by when they could.God loves you and God knows best. Take your rest now; rest well Couz. We all love ❤ you.

In Christ,
Cousins Mel O'D, Gabriel, Trent, Buddy and Rev. Dr. Lilipiana Davis Darensburg and Mother Emma Jean S. Davis
