Joyce was known for doing things “her way” and had a tremendous love for all of her family, she was the glue that held all of them together. Joyce was saved in 1964 and in 2010 became a very active member at First Baptist Church of Meadowview. She loved to cross-stitch, read books by Danielle Steele, shop on QVC and would never turn away any stray that wandered by her home, cat or dog, she would always care for them and feed them. Affectionately known as “Nana” by her grandchildren, her family was her greatest pleasure in her life.
