Condolences to Bob, Beth, Jill, and the entire family in regards to Joyce’s passing. When my siblings and I were young, she was like a second mother to us. She was always friendly, happy, optimistic, and had a great laugh.
I fondly recall our many family visits and meals together. I particularly liked her fondues (my first ever) and cookies. Her kindness and warmth will surely be missed.

Joyce was my next door neighbor and a lovely lady. I'm so saddened by her sudden passing, but am so glad I got to meet and know her. My deepest sympathies to Bob and daughters Beth and Jill.

I was saddened to hear of the recent passing of my Aunt Joyce. I spent a lot of my childhood at her house spending time with my cousins, Beth and Jill. She always made me feel at home and treated me like I was part of her family. I extend my deepest condolences to my Uncle Bob, Beth, Jill and all of her family. May she rest in peace.
