  • Our sympathy and prayers for the whole family. I have such good memories growing up when Joyce led VBS outside having us say the pledge to the American flag and the pledge to the Christian flag! She taught love and respect for those flags. Joyce and my mom, Ruth Ann were such good friends and spent hours on the phn together building a Christian friendship that grew into a sisterhood of love for Christ and each other.
    They are celebrating together in heaven!

  • Steve, Brian and Tim,
    I am sorry to hear about your Mom. But I am sure that your loss is Heaven’s gain.
    I can’t help but think that Doug, Glenn, Ruth, Dutch, Mom and others are having a celebration service with Joyce. When I think of Joyce, the word “faithful” appears.
    Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
