You never had to guess what Joyce was thinking, she was a passionate woman, her passions usually in support of her family. As a teen, Joyce met a handsome guy named Alfred at Pops soda shop in Gibbstown. It took a little work for him to win her over, proving his efforts were worth it. Settling in Repaupo, their marriage of 51 years, was blessed with two sons, Alfred (Candace) and the late Andrew; and later by her granddaughter, Sierra. Joyce was a 4.0 accounting student in her youth, and it carried over into her many careers, bringing calm and order to the many companies in which she worked. Life wasn’t always easy, but through all her trials and tribulations, Joyce would prove herself stronger. She would find her real calling later in life, that of a grandmother. From the time Sierra was a little girl, they did their hair and nails together and Joyce never missed a soccer game, always Sierra’s biggest fan. She exceled in the kitchen, taking a shot at just about any dish. Joyce could sew everything and anything, from clothes to auto upholstery. If her T.V. was on, she’d be catching up on her soaps. Her tastes in music spanned from Neil Diamond to Trace Adkins. Joyce enjoyed traveling abroad, trips through Europe; cruises all over the Caribbean and always looking forward to their next destination. Without a doubt, her favorite place was Disney.
