Her primary passion was her family. She spent Sundays cooking for her family and many friends throughout the years. No matter the day, visitors were fed upon arrival and often left with a to-go box of whatever she had cooked that day. Joyce will also be missed by her loving friend and remarkable caregiver Dorothy Rae Carson. A memorial service will be held at Christ the King Catholic Church at a later date.
