Joyce Henderson Hogsed
Asheville - On the morning of February 14, 2013, Joyce Henderson Hogsed awoke in Heaven with her Lord Jesus Christ. A lifelong resident of Buncombe County and a member of East Asheville United Methodist Church, Joyce Hogsed who was known by many in later years simply as Aunt Joy, joined her Mother & Father, Edward and Carrie Henderson, her husband of 50 years, Charles Harvey Hogsed, and her brother Edward H. Henderson Jr.
A graduate of Lee Edwards High in 1948, Joyce worked for the VA Hospital system from 1948 retiring in 1986. While an avid reader, animal lover who also enjoyed traveling when she could, Joy always considered the mountains of Asheville, her home.
