We will miss our Mother, Sister, Aunt and Grandmother. Nothing brought more joy to her life than her family. We will miss the smile on her face when her family, especially her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren came to visit. She hosted many chicken BBQ’s at her home in Tuscarora. Nobody could make mashed potatoes, macaroni salads and lasagna better than Joyce. We will miss our visits and her words of wisdom.
