Joy was my dance teacher for so many years....I just loved her....I was just a very little girl when I began with her. Her studio was then across the street from St. Raphael Church. She then moved across the street from Assumption High School. I stopped taking dance around the age of 15, maybe. At that time I was taking ballet, point and Jazz dance. As an adult I came back for several years and just took ballet at Ballet East for exercise. I remember her Mom and Dad working at her studios and at recitals. My Mother would arrive early to pick me up and would always enjoy sitting next to Mrs. Williams desk talking with her. I remember when she married her husband. As a little or young girl I thought he was so handsome... Then he started helping at the recitals and all the girls liked that because he was so nice and so handsome!! I remember too when she was pregnant and teaching dance classes. She was just so beautiful. She was so talented. She was so graceful. All the little girls wanted to grow up and be just like her. She wore her little dance skirt, sometimes she wore the long one with her tights and leotard. I remember too her beautiful little daughter's death. RIP beautiful Joy Williams Bell. Now you are with Wendy. Fond memories,

Oh, how I remember her wonderful classes in the 60's. She developed my love for dance. I was sorry to learn of her passing. She truly was a "joy". May you RIP

As a former board member of the Louisville Ballet, I interacted with Joy frequently. She was always graceful and a pure joy to watch on stage, and so friendly and outgoing in social settings. One of a kind! RIP

Joy was a faithful volunteer for Highlands Community Ministries meals on wheels program for many years. Her name fits her because she is a Joy. She will be missed.
