    Joyce and I school chums at Huron School. I had many overnight stays at her home over the years. I have a framed poem on my wall still today that she wrote in honor of my mother, Edith King in 1985. She signed it "To Netha, a forever friend." She will be missed. Netha King Wyman

    Joyce was an amazing person!! As one of her nurses, it was a joy to care for her!! She had a great (dry) since of humor. When I took her medication in the mornings she would say “great, I’ve been looking forward to this” 😂😂 She will be greatly missed!! 😢😢
