Christine Elizabeth Joye Obituary
Joyce, Christine Elizabeth

Christine Elizabeth (Nemeth) Joyce, 60 of Lewisburg, PA, Albuquerque, NM and South Amboy, NJ lost her long battle with cancer on Monday, Dec. 14th at Buffalo Valley Nursing Home in Lewisburg.

Chris graduated in 1973 from St. Mary's H.S. in So. Amboy, NJ, and went to work for AT&T. She traveled extensively as a young woman throughout the southern and western states to California, the northeast coast to Maine, and to Hawaii. In 1988 she married and moved to New Mexico; after two years she was single again and enjoying life in the desert. Chris was employed for 15 years at Lovelace ParkCenter as Clerical Supervisor in the Behavioral Center. Leaving many good friends, she moved back to NJ in 2006 to assist her brother in the care of their mother until her death in 2010.

Chris was most recently employed as a Psych tech at White Deer Run Rehabilitation Facility. She was happy to get back into the behavioral health field.

Chris was predeceased by her parents, Anthony and Eleanor (Fisler) Nemeth, older sister Patty Jacobelli, and younger brother Scott. She is survived by an older brother, William and family in Mexico; a younger sister, Tammy Munck; one niece, Catie; two nephews, Ryan and Michael (with fiancee Amanda); and one great-nephew, Abel Scott, all of Hatfield, PA. Chris will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
