Joyce Ann Trobaugh God said, "On the day you were born, I am giving you little wings because you are one of my special children on earth." Joyce knew love and happiness and shared that love to all who knew her. God said, "Today your wings are very big and it's time to fly to Me in Heaven, as you are an angel now." Joyce Ann was born in Memphis, TN, on Dec. 20, 1949. Joyce Ann was preceded in death by her father, James Oran Trobaugh and mother, Alma Forhess Trobaugh; her brother, Jerry Thomas Trobaugh; and her brother-in-law, James Stuart Busch, USN of Chicago, IL. Joyce is survived by her sister, Vivianne Busch; her niece, Pamela Ann Hacker (Bob); and great-nephew Jared Robert Hacker, all of Troutman, NC; and her many special friends in Mundelein, IL and Statesville, NC. Joyce and her sister moved to Statesville in 2007 to be near their family in Troutman. A special thank you to the doctors, nurses and CNA's at Iredell Memorial Hospital and to the wonderful people at Hospice of Iredell County who all gave Joyce such loving care. Also Gail Pratt, CNA and Dudley Home Health, who showed such loving care to Joyce and her sister. And last but not least, Father Kurt and Deacon Matt Riley of St. Philip The Apostle Catholic Church.
