    Joyce was an amazing person and like a second mom to me growing up! What a wonderful example she has been to me! She was kind, smart, talented, funny, caring, and loving! I will never forget the “old” sayings she would use such as: “I’m so fagged!” I’ll also never forget the first time I went to her house and asked if I could please have a drink of water. She said, “That will be 10 cents!” I was surprised and not quite sure what to think, since I didn’t have any money on me. She was joking of course, which was a relief to me as an 8 year old! She has such an amazing family and the world will be an emptier place without her in it!

    We were so sorry to hear that Joyce passed away. Her son, Jim, and our son, Mark, were best friends starting in middle school and throughout high school, then roomed together while attending college in Portland. After the boys moved to Portland, Joyce and I would drive over to visit them. We were always so anxious to get there that we wouldn’t stop to eat. Instead, we would go through a drive-in and eat our food on the way. One year, Ed accompanied us on our trip and he preferred to stop at a restaurant and sit down and eat. Joyce kept telling him to hurry up and finish his food so we could be on our way.. She was such a sweet lady and will be missed greatly. We send our love and deepest sympathy to all of her family.
