Joyce also had 3 Great Grandchildren who she adored her, "Little Treasures" Nash and Jackson and Gwendolyn. She is also survived by many special nieces and nephews.
Joyce was a strong loving wife, mother, grandmother and GG. Throughout her life her family admired her strong will and feistiness. She never backed down from a challenge and god knows the world handed her many. She was always up for a coffee and visit and welcomed many people into her home over the years. Her family was her pride and joy, always in her heart and mind. She never missed a beat to say something inappropriate and hilarious. Her smile would light up a room when any of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren would walk in. Every time we left we would always says " I love you" she would reply "I love you more."
