PATRICK and BEVERLY (HRINDA) JOYCE Obituary
PATRICK & BEVERLY "BEV" (HRINDA) JOYCE
Age 69, passed away surrounded by loved ones on August 12, 2017, in Jacksonville, FL after a year-long fight with cancer. She took on the disease with a "strong like bull" mentality and stayed positive and hopeful until the very end. Beverly was born June 10, 1948, in Pittsburgh to Helen (Michak) Hrinda and Michael Hrinda. Beverly loved cooking for family, her book club divas, trivia nights, and hosting Labor day parties. Bev, and her husband, Patrick, loved their eight grandchildren more than anything else. Fittingly, the last word that Beverly spoke was "love." Beverly is survived by her daughter, Cherie (Brian) Atwood; her son, Shayne (Erin) Joyce; brother, Richard Hrinda; her sister, Joannie (Gary) Meissner; eight grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her brother, Michael Hrinda. Patrick "Pat" Joyce passed soon after his wife, on August 31, 2017, in Jacksonville, FL. Pat's death was caused by pulmonary complications that were brought on by a broken heart and a need to be near his wife of nearly 50 years. Patrick was born in Pittsburgh on February 11, 1946, to Martha (Palmer) Joyce and Patrick Joyce, Sr. Pat loved shooting pool, beautiful golf courses, and storytelling about the old days. Patrick is survived by his brother, Bob (Ellie) Gardner; and sister, Maureen Price. He was preceded in death by sisters, Patricia Howatneck and Margaret Joyce. Memorial services will take place Saturday, September 16, 2017, 12:00 p.m. at Brush Creek Cemetery Chapel in Irwin, PA. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital, 1249 Cocoa Avenue, Suite 115, P.O. Box 852, Hershey, PA 17033.
