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.
Family will celebrate 69 great years at a private service.
Remember many good times spent with Joyce and her Mother. Have a beautiful Angel that Joyce crocheted that I enjoy as a centerpiece on my table every Christmas.May you all remember her with fond memories.
Alfred, I am so so sorry.🙏😢❤️

You are my best bud and I love you. I miss you. As you talked to me on phone right before you passed, you sang Over the rainbow, saying you were over the rainbow and you found me.What an honor that was for me. You always said I love you. You was an awesome woman.I will hold you in my heart. You are as beautiful as that rainbow.Gob bless your family, May they find comfort and peace knowing your are with God.
