Joyce was a very active person; she was also a very lucky person. While Joyce would be out walking it was not uncommon for her to stumble upon money. Joyce moved with the VA to Florida where she was a secretary for over 25 years; she didn’t mind the move at all because Joyce loved the beach. She loved being outside and enjoying the sun, especially when she would go swimming in the ocean. Joyce was a very friendly person as well, she never knew a stranger. She loved spending time with people playing games, mainly Bingo and mahjong; she was also an avid Cubs fan. Joyce was a longtime member of Second Church of Christ. Above all else, Joyce loved her family and she will be dearly missed by anyone who was fortunate enough to have known her.
