Joyce is survived by her siblings: Lula Belle Slagle, Kathy Hoss, Judy Miller, Gail Robinson (Gerald), Tessie Harrell (Gary), and Wayne Ledford; and numerous Nieces and Nephews and great nieces and nephews.
The family would like to express a very special thank you to Penny Howell, Joyce's caregiver, and to Terra McKinney and all the staff of Compassionate Care WNC for their loving care they gave to Joyce during her illness.
