November 25, 1965 - May 3, 2021
Joyce Elaine Giboney, 55, of Searcy passed away on May 3, 2021 at home while surrounded by her family. She was born on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1965 in Fullerton, California. She is survived by her parents, Kent and Carol Giboney; two brothers, Michael Giboney (Donna) of Peoria, Arizona and Keith Giboney (Michal) of Searcy; a sister, Brenda Teague (Bode) of Searcy, Arkansas. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. In recent years, several grand-nieces and nephews were added to her family, who lovingly referred to Joyce as Aunt JoJo.Joyce spent her first 17 years of life in Southern California and then moved to Phoenix for another 22 years before coming to Searcy, Arkansas in 2005. Joyce was a faithful member of the College Church of Christ where she had many friends who were especially kind. Joyce also worked faithfully for 14 years at Unity Health Hospital in the dietary department until her failing health compelled her to leave her job.Joyce was an unfailingly kind individual and was well liked by all who knew her. She fell victim to cancer nearly one year ago and fought valiantly to the end. In that regard, the family wishes to express their deepest appreciation to oncologist, Dr. Ryan Koch for his extraordinary caring for Joyce and her family. Also, the efforts of Arkansas Hospice were most appreciated. Joyce was personally a supporter of Health Talents International-a medical mission effort to the country of Guatemala. Memorial donations in Joyce's name to that mission work would be most welcome. There will be a ''Celebration of Life'' Memorial Service for Joyce at College Church of Christ on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 10:30AM. Inurnment will be in Oaklawn Memorial Gardens with services provided by Roller-Daniel Funeral Home.Online Guestbook: http://www.rollerfuneralhomes.com/searcy

Kent & Carolo, We are sorry for your loss, but the victory is now hers. We are praying for you ad at you to know you are lovedl
I am sorry for your loss. Joyce was a special lady that I had the privilege of working with at Unity-Health. She was a dedicated associate that was kind and caring to everyone she met. We were blessed to have her with us. She handled her diagnosis with grace. A good Christian example. I’ve been blessed to know her.
Joyce was uniquely sweet across her large set of cousins; she faced challenges most of us never have, and she loved better than many of us ever may. She is the first of our 20+ cousins to enter glory! With confidence, I can say we are all better having known Joyce in our lives. Thank you, Lord, for the time you gave Joyce time to cross our paths.
Love you so sweet Joycee and know you are so happy and free, you persevered and won the prize! All glory be the God in the highest!!Praying for the Giboney family and all who loved our sweet Joyce.
