East Lyme - Michele L. "Mickey" (LaCasse) Joy, 50, of Niantic, passed away Jan. 10, 2013, with her family by her side,after a long battle with breast cancer. |
She was born Sept. 10, 1962, in Lancaster, N.H., the daughter of Reg and Maureen (Flynn) LaCasse.
Her accomplishments and acts of kindness are too numerous to list, and simply saying, she was a great mother, wife, and woman, doesn't quite do her justice. She is a loved and respected woman and will be greatly missed.
Besides her parents, Mickey is survived by her husband, Jeffrey of Niantic; her two sons, Timothy of Boston, and Christopher of Niantic; three sisters, Maurie, Melissa, Megan; two brothers, Mark and Matthew. In addition she also leaves and watches over an army of nieces and nephews who love and adore her.
A celebration of Mickey's life will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, at the Thomas L. Neilan & Sons East Lyme Funeral Home, 48 Grand St., Niantic. There are no calling hours.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Connecticut Hospice, 100 Double Beach Road, Branford, CT 06405, www.hospice.com/donatebymail.htm and/or Spreadjoygivehope.weebly.com for Cancer Research.
