    Joyce was an avid music lover and teacher. I was privileged to know Joyce for many years. We were both members of Cappella Festiva Chamber Choir and the Matinee Musicale. Joyce was a wonderful, caring person. She loved her family dearly and often talked of them fondly. She will be greatly missed. I was so sorry to see her obituary. Please know that many people remember Joyce fondly. I send my deepest sympathy to the whole family.
