Joyce made the world a better place. She will be missed by all who knew her. Her love for life knew no bounds and she found joy in song, travel and a lifelong thirst for knowledge.

The family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude to their friends, as well as the compassionate medical professionals for their unwavering care and support during Joyce's illness.
