Helen Joan Massey, age 77, went to be with the Lord on Friday, July 4, 2014. Joan was born the only child to Talton Noah Lemmons and Ruth Amanda (Rogers) Lemmons in Pocahontas, AR on September 23, 1936. She is preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her loving husband of 58 years, Col. (Ret.) Lee T. Massey, USA; their son, Mark Massey and his wife Nancy of Lavernia, TX; grandchildren, Jay T. Massey and his wife Kelly Falgout of Austin, TX, Sarah Massey Edmiston and her husband Jonathan of Bangs, TX, and Leann Massey of LaVernia, TX; great-grandchildren, Jordan, Olive, Jackson, Jonathan, Oakland and Jacob. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt to many others in her extended family. She spent the first 30 years of her marriage following Lee from post to post as the consummate Army wife and mother. Upon Lee's military retirement, she joined him in establishing the family claims business until they retired in 2005. Joan was active with her church, loved to travel and spend time with family and friends. Her family would like to acknowledge the wonderful care she received over the past year by the staff at SAMMC, Avionn Home Health Care and Gentiva Hospice.
