So sorry for the loss of Joyce. We loved to talk about our days of working together at Grants Store many years ago and then in later years at Calais Regional Hospital. Joyce was such a nice person with a big smile always. She will be missed so much by her family and friends. Rest in peace dear Joyce.

Val, Holly and families, I am so very sorry for your loss. Joyce was a beautiful lady, always a smile. I will miss seeing her at family functions. I am sure Barry and Matt met her there with big hugs. I hope all the special memories you have shared helps heal your pain. Thinking of you all, Karen

Joyce was a classmate at WHS, class of 1959. Her beautiful smile could light up the room. Always looked lovely whenever she was out and about. Rest in peace.

Sending our love to Valerie, Holly and family. We were so heartbroken to learn of Joyces’ passing. After working together for many years we became dear friends. I always enjoyed running into her and being able to pick up right where we left off. Her family was her greatest joy and she was so very proud of you all! Praying you’ll find comfort knowing she is back with her “Bar” and Matt. Love and prayers, Lisa & Derek Howard and family

Our hearts break for your loss. She meant a lot to us and she will be so missed. It is such a nice thought of thinking that she is standing next to Barry right now and at peace and knowing how much she was loved. This does not help the pain you are feeling but I hope it helps to comfort you in some way. We love you guys!! Todd, Kim and Morgan
