Thank you for being my first dance teacher, for everything you did for the kids of Chelsea, Ma. But most of all thank you for loving my parents, being a part of the O'Callaghan Family memories. You are missed by many and loved by many. Your angel wings await you.

I am so saddened to hear this. First Paul, then Joyce. They were truly remarkable together. I met them through the post office. We shared a common love of Disney. She always thought of me when they visited Disney. My favorite princess is Belle, and they brought me back a Belle pin, that I will cherish forever. I am so sorry for the families loss. As a postal clerk, there are people whos lives touch us deeply and Paul and Joyce were those people. Tears come to me whenever I think of them. Thoughts and prayers, Karyn Williams USPS clerk

Dear Deangelis Sartorelli Families

I wash to extend my personal and class (1958 CHS) condolences.
Joyce was a friend, neighbor (Mill Hill) and class mate (secretary of our class).She was always a positive presance in any group. Her talent as a performer has always remained in my memory as she entertained us in her back yard.

I am joyce's cousin. Her Father Al and my Father Harry were brothers. My Mother (Lucy) and Joyce's Mother Vicki were great friends and we always got together as a family.
When Joyce was young she used to pantomime to songs and would always put on a show for the family. Sometimes I would help her got to places to do a show. We had lots of fun together.
I am so glad she had a good life and a wonderful family and was so well thought of by many people. I will miss you Joyce, Love your cousin Janice DeAngelis Cafarella

I have the fondest memories of Joyce as a dance teacher and mentor. She was kind, humble, beautiful and inspiring. She used her God-given talents for the good of others. She will be missed dearly. My heartfelt condolences to her family.

Joyce was such a wonderful gift to St Rose School. The students, faculty and staff absorbed so much from her. Gods gift of dance, along with her kindness and thoughtfulness touched so many lives. I feel that I have to witness, not only for myself and other Priests of St Rose, but especially for the many Sisters of Providence who were so touched by her great generosity of Spirit. Most of them are gone now and I smile thinking of Joyce & Paul sharing an eternal show with them.

Heartfelt sympathies to all. My love and admiration for Joyce is endless. I know in my heart that she and Paul are safe and sound in the arms of God. May the memories you have tucked safely away in your hearts see you through difficult time and hope you know that many are keeping you in their thoughts and prayers.

Dear Joyce, You and my brother, Paul, had a wonderful 60-year marriage and were both loved so much by our family. Together, we all shared years and years of happy times along with joyful memories of the holidays and other family celebrations.
You and Paul were spiritually connected and are Blessed to be united again in Heaven with God and His Angels. Love, Mary

Sartorelli Family; Please accept my sincere sympathy on the loss of Joyce and Paul; Joyce was an icon in the City of Chelsea from the days of her Dance Studio, to directing Fashion Shows for Fundrisers for Zonta, OLA, and other organizations,Teas for St. Mary's Church in Georgetown and volunteering her time for other groups who needed it. I remember when she used to pantomine to Barbara Streisand, dressed in costumes, so many other memories. Paul and Joyce will certainly be missed, they were a wonderful couple and I am sure they are together in Heaven.

My heart is broken. Joyce did more for my family than anyone else could have. My daughter was one of her students when she was diagnosed with cancer of the leg. We were told shed never dance again but Joyce would have none of that! When my daughter was well enough a year and a half later Joyce called us to the studio. She wanted to see how much my daughter, who was now in a brace ,could move her leg. It wasnt much. Joyce decided to take on dancing with a disability to try to figure out how to get my daughter faux dancing again. She went out and had a special brace made for her left leg just like my daughters. She practiced until she mastered a way to show my daughter how to bluff a dance routine. It was perfect and no one could tell. She made sure my daughter always had a special place in all the recitals and if there was a turn or twist she couldnt do, Joyce would work the routine around what she could do. I am forever grateful for knowing this special woman. She gave my daughter confidence and gave us both hope that everything would be just fine and 35 years later, it still is. Thank you Joyce. Well never forget you.

Sartorelli Family,

Joyce and Broadway Studio were an enormous part of my childhood. Because of Joyce I fell in love with dance. She was an amazing teacher and taught me more than just how to point my toes, smile, and stand up straight. I looked forward to everyday I got to spend in that studio and dance...they were some of the happiest times of my life.
I'm saddened your family has endured two huge losses so close together. Joyce and Paul were the kindest people and such assets to the community. My deepest sympathy to you all.

With Love and Light,
Alyssa Profenna

Thank you, Joyce, for all the years you gave to the children of Saint Rose School. Your shows were phenomenal and the children loved performing! Thank you, also, to your husband who so lovingly would come and help you set up the stage on the night of the performance. May God reward you both for your kindness and generosity.Mary Anne Babineau, teacher and friend of St. Rose School

Sartorelli Family,

Please accept my deepest sympathies. Joyce and her studio were my second home growing up. I owe so much of who I am to her. She taught me so many wonderful life lessons about being kind, generous and humble. The Chelsea community was lucky to have had Joyce and Paul in them. I am so lucky to have been mentored by such a beautiful lady.

With sincerest condolences,
