                Joyce was a wonderful wife, mother, grandma, great grandma, and friend to anyone who walked into her life. If you ever sat at the kitchen table and had conversations with her, know that she loved you. She will be greatly missed.

If she ever made you a cake on your birthday
If she ever let you have a can of the hidden case of pop under her bed
If she ever made you pork chops, onions and potatoes in her skillet
If you ever got to sit and watch wheel of fortune with her in the morning, judge Judy, jeopardy, or investigate discovery channel
If she ever let you make her coffee and eggs
If she ever complimented your baking and cooking
If she ever let you eat her favorite crackers that sat on the table
If she ever gave you peanut butter m&ms from her candy stash that she never seemed to have until a little one came over.
If she ever sewed anything for you
If you ever walked through their door and always felt welcomed 
If you ever sat and had conversations with her about everything big and small....just know she loved me, you, and anyone that she treated like her own. She truly was one of a kind. RIP We love you so much. Tell Michael we said Hi! ❤️
