  1. Angella and Val we were blessed to be Joyce’s neighbors and friends. She had a smile like no other, a quick laugh and unbelievable wit, we loved her jokes! Her knowledge of antiques was fascinating and with that she helped my mom learn some knowledge about some things she had acquired ouf of country. She was a good soul and we will miss her so much but we know she is dealing antiques up in heaven and telling those jokes to make people laugh! We love you!! Juls and Bobby and the boys!
