    So sorry for your loss. I graduated with Joyce. She and I were on the front page of the Quill when FHA wore our mother’s clothes. She had on one of my Mom’s hats and her red heels.
    Bless her heart. May she rest in peace.
    Prayers for comfort.
    Cherish her memory.

    A giant hole for her family and even for the citizens for west plains with Joyce passing. I can still hear her laugh all the way down here in Florida. Even though we were cousins a few years apart she was always a friend also and we always chat for a few minutes every time I came into town when we bumped
    Into each other. I remember
    The tornadoes of 1982 and me going to her house when we were neighbors to ride one out as we had endured a rough one in April and she sheltered me so I wouldn’t be alone in the storm. Not only did she have a heart of gold she had the strength to endure the absolute worse and never stopped being one of the best human beings I know. Enjoy your peace in heaven with family and friends til we met again. Peace for all that was lucky enough to have been blessed by your life.

    Joyce was a person who gave more, went the second and third mile to help others. May her memory be in our minds for the rest of our lives. We can take the lead she showed and do our best to help others in the manner she did to those she loved and cared about. Carol Hayes Bybee and husband Ken
