Aunt Joyce was always a loving force in the family — quick to share, to laugh, and to give! She made trips to Ft Myers that we remember fondly, to visit Dad and us. She was here for Dad’s 80th birthday celebration in 2007. We know that she is now together with all the saints that have gone before singing praises and rejoicing!
We are so sorry we will no longer have Aunt Joyce with us on this earth. She will stay in our hearts forever. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find peace in knowing how much she meant to so many.
My sincerest condolences to your family. I always enjoyed being with Joyce and hearing the stories of her family at the Van Patten, Marsh, & Crook family reunions at Pangburn. My thoughts & prayers are with you at this time.

I always enjoyed visiting with Joyce. Sending prayers and hugs to her family.
Joyce and I were friends many years ago when we were both in high school and were in attendance to The First Baptist Church at Pangburn,AR. We spent many Sunday afternoons together listening to music, talking, playing board games, and being teenage girls. She and I had just re-connected a year or so ago and had recently communicated through FB. I convey my sincere condolences to her family at this time in the loss of a very gracious and wonderful lady. May The Lord grant those left behind comfort and peace with the knowing of their re-uniting with Joyce in Heaven at some point in time.
I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
