Dear Charlie,Jay and Family,
Please accept our sincere sympathy on the death of your dear mother Joyce. Having lived across the street from your mother for 32 years we became very, very close friends. We always had each others back. I can't fathom what it is going to be like returning to the neighborhood this summer and not seeing your mother. I enjoyed our daily visits, listening to her play the organ, our time at Marshlands and especially her tall tales and jokes. Your loss is shared by many of her other true friends who were always there for her..namely, Jeanne Barlow who called and checked on Joyce on a daily basis. Don and Joan Tucci - Don was Joyce's handyman who could fix just about anything, Natalie Lambros who sent over a hot, delicious meal every Monday night and Diane Cotter who also cooked for her and ran errands.
Back in the day, Joyce using her nursing skills touched many lives in our small community of Pimlico Pines with her kind deeds to her neighbors and friends. She was always there to lend a helping hand to those who needed medical attention or those that just wanted to be reassured that they were O.K.
Joyce was a woman that carved and walked her own path. She was one of those strong woman who left a lasting impression on those she met. She was known for her quick wit and humor. She was one talented lady!
Joyce was a valuable gift and a unique treasure!! We are thankful for all the special moments we had with Joyce. Love and memories last forever. Betty and Herb
