Joyce was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother and was at the heart of our family.

She was the perfect loving and supportive wife who stood by her husband through thick and thin and never wavered in her devotion.
Joyce was active in, and past president of, the Catskill Mountain Doll Club and enjoyed collecting and making dolls under the tutelage of her friend and also past Doll Club president and founder, Lynn Nalven. Joyce also loved movies, cooking, and her three pets, Toby, Max, and Buddy. And foremost, she was an avid reader who would read one book a day.
