Shaffer, Darice Joycelyn (Maurer) Known by everyone as Joyce passed away peacefully at home on Monday, March 26, 2012. She was born September 9, 1928 in Chicago, Ill., and was 83 years of age at the time of her death. She was a warm, caring person who will be sincerely missed by family and friends.
She was preceded in death by Lewis, her husband of 64 years. Survivors include her brother Harry (Lola) Maurer of Redding, daughter Donna (Larry) Gish of Roseville, grandsons Larry (Toni) Gish of Roseville and Brian Gish of Newport Beach. She has five great grandchildren, Jeff (Kristi), Brittany (Jon), Amanda, Larry Jr. (Megan) and Mackenzie, two great-great-grandsons, Keagan and Julian and numerous nieces and nephews. We want to express a special thank you to the caring staff at Sierra Pointe in Roseville, where she has lived the last three years. Many there became her friends as they shared life experiences with each other. In her final days it was Vitas Hospice that kept Joyce and her family comfortable. Thank you everyone.
