    Our hearts go out to Scott and Shelly. Your mother was well loved. Some of our fondest memories of your mom and dad were on New Years eve at Pat and Chery’ls house playing games till midnight and toasting the new year and Joyce and I started singing “Old Stuball was a racehorse” and “On the wings of a snow white Dove”. We couldn’t hold a note worth a darn, but we didn’t care. You will be missed Joyce, but not forgotten. With all our Love!

    Scott and Shelly, What a loss. I’m truly saddened with the news of Joyce. It was always great spending time with both Joyce and Mike. Their cheery attitude and love of family defined them. We all were lucky to have had them in our life. Don Widaman

    Scott, Shelly & Lexi,We were so sorry to hear of the loss of you mother. Your mother and Father lived for the love of their children, family, faith & friends. We know it is difficult to smile at a time like this, but we believe we must summon the strength we have in our faith to realize that Joyce is in a far better place, alongside her husband Mike. No more suffering or hardships for Joyce, only Love and Peace. We should always keep the pictures in our minds of the good and special times, the love and laughter shared by family and friends. Please stay strong as your mother and father would certainly want all the best for you Scott, Shelly & Lexi. May God Bless and Hold you all.Pat and Cheryl
