I worked with Joyce in the ER at Lima Memorial. She was so fun to work with and great sense of humor. She adored her family, that is all she talked about. Heaven gained an angel. Blessings for her family. Gayle Chaney

I remember Joyce bringing me jars of pickles and onions when she found out I was pregnant with Amelia. She handed me three jars and said, "Here's your pickles for those cravings that will be starting soon".
