    Joyce was a great friend. She always had a smile on her face and trusted God completely through this painful time of her life. She was always willing to help out wherever she could. I enjoyed her sly sense of humor. I will miss her.

    Dear Carolyn:

    I do so well remember Joyce, and am sorry for your loss. She was seemingly “always around” with the rest of us “girls”. I know you’ll miss her.
    You will be in my prayers,

    Fondly, Barbara (Beem) Schlottach
