Joyce was a Master Gardener whose yard was filled in all seasons with beautiful color. She was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW Post 5480 for many years and enjoyed cooking great meals for the veterans and their families. Joyce was very active in community theater and performed in many plays and musicals including Anything Goes, Our Town, The Music Man, and The Grapes of Wrath. She loved painting landscapes, writing haikus, and playing her guitar. She had a gift for memorizing song lyrics and long passages of poetry and prose. She loved seeing her grandchildren and great grandchildren who always made her smile. She also loved the holidays, particularly Christmas, and she would present her family and friends with a table full of holiday goodies. Joyce is now reunited with her beloved, Artie, who is “Home the sailor, from the sea.”
