Born in: Pomona, California
Resided in: Palos Verdes Estates, California

Joyce Allene Corsaro peacefully passed away at home in Palos Verdes Estates on November 17, 2021 at the age of 88. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, friend, community volunteer, and athlete.

Joyce was born in Pomona, California, and graduated from Pomona High School. She later settled in Redondo Beach where she worked as a legal secretary and met her husband Dal Corsaro. They celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary on November 16, 2021.

Joyce was active with her family in several community organizations including Sandpipers, National Charity League, and the Portuguese Bend National Horse Show Committee to benefit Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

When her children were young, sports were also a big part of her life. She played Marine League at Palos Verdes Tennis Club. She was also a big speed walker, sailed regularly to Catalina on the family sailboat called Loki, and later took up golf.

In her late 50’s Joyce attended El Camino College and made the honor roll. She earned her paralegal degree and practiced as a paralegal.

Joyce is survived by her husband Dal Corsaro; her four daughters: Victoria Lyon, Cynthia Corsaro, Theresa Corsaro, and Joanna Georgiou; her sister Margie Bohlman; her cousin Jan Maguire; and her dearly loved grandchildren Taylor, Hunter and Grace.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Portuguese Bend National Horse Show Committee to benefit Children’s Hospital Los Angeles online at  or by post to P.O. Box 801, Palos Verdes Estates, CA 90274.
