Joyce grew up in the Kansas City area where she attended Shawnee Mission North High School until 1962. She enjoyed her careers as a bank teller and then as a medical/psychiatric assistant. More than once when her children needed her at home she created her own child care business. She had a love of horses and a passion for creating art; but her greatest passion was people. Before she was five minutes in a room she had made a new friend. She loved being involved with her children and later spending time with her grandchildren. She enjoyed being active in her art group and encouraging other artists; and the prayer group she started with her friends in 1968 is still together after 50 years.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Curtis and Vergie Crouch, and her brothers, Robert (“Bob”) and Jerry Crouch.
Survivors include her husband of 46 years, David Veazey; her daughters, Kimberly Veazey-McCrory and Kassandra Wise; her sons, Christopher and Joshua Veazey, as well as eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Memorial contributions are suggested to Harvesters at www.harvesters.org or to the Heifer Project at www.heifer.org causes that Joyce felt very strongly about.
