Bev & Diane I loved your mother dearly, I helped care for her at the mennonite home. I always have her in my thoughts she truly made a mark in my life, i was looking for a way to contact her, I even went back to the nursing home and they told me she had left home. I’m so sorry for your lost and I’m so sad to find out she passed away 🙁 I really would have loved to see her one last time!

Bev & Diane, I have just heard of Joyce’s death on this earth. Your mother has been a cohesive force in our families’ lives, practicing forgiveness and acceptance. Her involvement in NAMI made a difference in other’s lives as well as her own family. I am so glad you drove her through Albany so I had the opportunity to know her better, in these last years. I will be praying for both of you. I pray God will bring you peace and joy . My true sincerest sympathy.
Love your cousin,
Christal

Condolence from Sheryl Field on February 6th, 2016 7:21 pm

Bev and Diane So sorry to hear of Aunt Joyce’s passing. It was a pleasure to reconnect with you. What a sweet lady, I’ll miss her visits to Altoona. I smile thinking of her when she’d come thru the door and not be tall enough of set off the open door sensor and the time we stayed out so late and she called to see when you girls were going to get back “home”. Hope she didn’t think I was a bad influence. HA! My prayer and thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Let’s keep in touch Much love Sheryl

I am sorry for the loss of your dear Joyce. May the “God of all comfort” embrace you and bring to your minds joyful memories. ( 2 Corinthians 1:3) You can find hope and comfort in the promises recorded for us at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4, as well as Psalm 37:11,29. As you read these verses you will be encouraged by the wonderful future our Heavenly Father Jehovah has in store for us. All the best wishes for your family at this time.

I was so saddened to hear of Aunt Joyce’s passing but know she is in her Heavenly home and no longer struggling here on earth. She was a blessing to me and I always enjoyed getting her Christmas cards every year. I will miss them. Bev and Diane, I know you and Sheryl have some fun times together and I know Sheryl always enjoyed seeing Aunt Joyce. Sheryl would text or email me when y’all got together. My love to both of you. Know your mother is so much happier and back with Uncle Dean and her family who have also “gone on ahead”. My love and blessings to you.
