Aunt Joyce, your laughter and silliness will greatly missed. You were the life of the party and always ready to dance.
Love your niece Sherry Lewis

i loved to trick aunt Joyce about what weights the most. A pound of feathers or a pound of rocks, she always picked the rocks and uncle Jerry kept telling me to give it up she would never get it. uncle Jerry and Aunt Joyce always helped my Mom and Dad and everyone around them. Whenever they need something they were always there because they both had a great heart. Heaven is getting the most nicest, friendly, loving , caring people couple. Dance Aunt Joyce like no one is watching.

Joyce was one of the kindest, most loving people I have ever known. This world will not be the same without her. She for sure was the life of the party and could always bring life and joy to anything. She definitely loved her music and dancing!

Sincere condolences and prayers to the Loveall and Smith families on Joyce’s passing. Joyce was a favorite cousin growing up in Missouri. Regretfully, life directions often distance us from family. Fond memories and treasured photos still remain. May God comfort one and all.
