Aunt Joyce was a wonderful woman who worked really hard. She was always providing for someone else and didn’t have a selfish bone in her body. I sincerely respected her and always enjoyed sitting at her dinner table hearing stories. The last time we ate there we had only food grown on the farm, except the Jean’s Beans fish. She could make the best donuts! As I sit here today playing the mental ” memory clips” in my head, I know I am richer for having known her.
Rest In Peace Aunt Joyce

So sorry to hear of your Mom passing. I always thought a lot of Joyce. She always had a smile and kind word. She worked so hard her whole life. May she Rest In Peace.
So very sorry to read of your loss. Both of your parents were hard working, kind people and we always enjoyed picking up their milk. Doug thought a lot of them both and always had a story or two to tell. I always looked forward to the holidays and the delicious treats we received. They will always be in your heart and guiding you every day. Judy and Doug Gracey

Was sadden to hear of Joyce’s passing. Praying for peace and comfort for you all. Joyce was always such a caring and hard working woman. It amazed me to hear about all the food she prepared and amount of people she fed on farm. Always looked forward to her baked beans at family gatherings. May she find rest now in the hands of our great Lord.
