Joyce spent most of her life as a seamstress, making numerous prom dresses, and wedding gowns for family and friends. She retired from the Masonic Home in Elizabethtown as a CNA where she thoroughly enjoyed working the Alzheimer’s patients. She enjoyed doing word search puzzles, watching all kinds of sports, going to casinos and taking bus trips. Joyce was of the protestant faith and was a member of the Bedford Valley Assembly of God Church. One of her greatest accomplishments was reading the entire bible, once as a young girl, and again as an adult. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and sister, and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
