  • Prayers to Suzanne and family. I will miss her so much and I know I will grab the phone for awhile thinking I can call her. My beautiful sister is a Burbank girl and they like to do things their way. This was her choice and she was at peace with her decision, therefore I will also be at peace. I love you Joyce but I will see you again.

  • Suzanne, Aunt Carol, John, Toni, Peter, Bryan and Aubry,

    I wish I could gather the right words to make your pain less and offer you guys some kind of comfort. I am very sadden to hear that Aunt Joyce has passed. She is now with her other loved ones in heaven. I will remember her for her wonderful and gentle soul, and she will forever remain in my heart. For the last 60 plus years my Burbank aunties have been there for me.

    I remember our summer vacation back in 72, when we all went to Ohio. We had a great time with Aunt Joyce, Uncle Bob, Steve and Suzanne camping in their back yard. That is a good memory for me. I will cherish the time Aunt Joyce & Suzanne came to Hawaii to visit us. I asked them if they would like some Malasadas. They both looked at me and was afraid to answer. Once they found out it was a Hawaiian pastry they loved it. Aunt Joyce sat in the back seat and ate 2 or 3 of them……lol. I am so happy for these memories of Aunt Joyce.

    Family…….nothing better than to be surrounded by our loved ones. I thinking of you all during this difficult time. May she rest in peace.

    With much love and aloha, Cousin/Nephew Rick……… A hui hou kakou

    Tony and I are so sorry for your loss. Aunt Joyce was such a special, beautiful lady. When I first met her, I remembering thinking Wow, she reminds me of a first lady. Funny I know, but she just held herself in that manner and what a classy woman she was. So loving, caring and fun to be around. Aunt Joyce is always talked about in Tony’s childhood memories. The many summers he and Caren spent at their home playing with Suzanne and Stevie. Memories he will always cherish.

    We are so very sorry we cannot be there; but please know Aunt Joyce will forever be in our hearts. She is at peace now and surrounded by her husband, son, sisters and dear loved ones. We love you all so very much.

    Tony and Debbie

  • It’s never easy to see a loved one pass over no matter the peace it brings their soul. I hope you and your family find comfort in the everyday signs our loved ones leave us in spirit! I bet your Momma will leave plenty 😉

    Love and Hugs, Elaine

  • Suzanne and family,

    I have no words to say how sad I am for your family. I have so many years of memories of your family with ours. I remember spending Easter at your house in Ohio and your dad having so much fun. He always picked on me to smile. He taught a couple of my sisters to drive whoops. Your mom always had a big smile and was a very kind person. I know she missed my mom when she died. Those 2 were so much fun together.

    I will always love you dear and be here should you need me.
