Joyce was a wonderful nurse and friend who was a joy to work with and to know. So many happy memories of her with the old 2-East gang. Everyone loved Joyce.

Joyce is part of my very earliest memories. I saw tv for the first time at her house. And oh, her biscuits! It’s been over 50 years since I had one but I will never forget how good they were. Last time I saw her I asked if she could teach me but she just laughed and said she just threw them together.
