  1. It has been a blessing to have Joyce as a friend for over 28 years and my hair dresser. It was a gift i gave to myself each Saturday for the past 28 years. Joyce was a caring loving friend. She was always there for our family in hard times. Joyce enjoyed life to the fullest and truly loved her son, and family. She loved her grand kids dearly and we spent many hours telling stories about our grand babies. I really admired Joyce for her ability to pack up and take a trip to Australia by herself and seem to find friends there and had a fantastic time. Needles to say she will be greatly missed.

    Joyce was a great person who has cut my hair and we shared stories and snippets of our lives with each other since 1983. I used to drive her a little crazy being late for my appointments, but since the invention of cell phones she would call just to remind me. I knew Randy as well and as a pastor I was able to add a little comfort to Joyce when he too suddenly was gone. I encouraged her when she was on her carrot kick and quit smoking, and she encouraged me as I went through struggles in our family. Joyce was more than just a barber to me, she was a good friend whom I will sorely miss.

  3. I just found out of the passing of Joyce. I loved going to get my hair cut from her. We always had a laugh and she was so caring! She will be missed dearly!
