HUMPHREY - Mrs. Joyce Ginnery, 83, of Humphrey, died Thursday evening (Nov. 8, 2018) at Olean General Hospital, following a short illness.

Born April 27, 1935, in Youngsville, Pa., she was the daughter of the late Clarence and Hazel Webster Herlet. She was married on June 7, 1986, to George "Tony" Ginnery, who predeceased her on Nov. 24, 1989.

She was employed in the kitchen at the St. Elizabeth Motherhouse, in Allegany, for over 10 years, retiring in 1989.

Mrs. Ginnery loved to spend time with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, family and friends. Joyce loved to cook for her family and was well known for her baking skills. She also loved going to Bingo. She will be remembered for growing beautiful flowers.

She was a lifetime member of the Humphrey Fire Company.

Surviving are a son, Harry (Mary) Ginnery of Humphrey; four daughters, Violet (Robert) Michels of Salamanca, Helen (Truman) Morris of Ischua, Mary (Donald Jimerson) Ginnery of Humphrey and Sally (Skip Boutwell) Ginnery of Humphrey; two sisters, Shirley Ginnery of Humphrey and Susie Chase of Great Valley; two brothers, Robert Chapman of Humphrey and Gary Chapman Sr. of Springville; numerous grandchildren; great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by a sister, Betty Gilman; and two brothers, Roger Chapman and Leon Chapman.

There are several extra special adopted grandchildren; and a special friend, Nicole Good, for being her "go-getter".

Friends may call from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday (Nov. 14, 2018) at O'Rourke & O'Rourke Inc. Funeral Home, 25 River St., Salamanca, at which time funeral services will be held, with the Rev. Josh Sreundschuh, of the Humphrey Baptist Church, officiating.
