    My deepest sympathy to all who knew and loved Joyce. She loved her family and her patients and gave her all to them!

    Joyce was a passionate and compassionate nurse who was devoted to Wood Central and they were definitely her extended family.

    Joyce would always light up when talking about her family and loved them with all her heart. She shared the pain of the Joplin tornado where her daughter and family lived. She shared the joy of seeing it’s resurrection, too! That was Joyce–present for the joys and the sorrows.

    I will always be grateful for Joyce’s caring of both of my parents at Lenoir, for her abiding faith which she shared and was a living testament to, and for her dedication to her profession from which our family benefited.

    She will be sorely missed!

    We were blessed by her presence and by her love. She is now with her Lord and Savior!
