Joyce Ann "Joy" Cassidy Obituary
Joyce A. (Joy) Cassidy, after a long fought battle with COPD, peacefully left us on August 28, 2018 for her eternal home at the age of 79. After suffering a severe breathing issue in April 2013, she returned home to hospice care where she remained until she was called home. The extraordinary time spent in hospice is a testament to the fighter that she was, strong and determined to the end. Joyce was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. She is survived by her husband Calvin Cassidy Sr., of almost 63 years; son Calvin Cassidy Jr. and wife Mary Cassidy (Ellicott City, MD); son Timothy Cassidy (Hampton, VA); daughter Teresa Cassidy Lafoon and husband Joseph Lafoon (Chapel Hill, NC); and five grandchildren, Joshua Lafoon and wife Rachel Lafoon (Wake Forest, NC), Jeremy Lafoon (Wake Forest, NC), Jacob Lafoon (Wake Forest, NC), Kelsey Lafoon (Chapel Hill, NC), and Matthew Cassidy (Hampton, VA). In accordance with her wishes, there will be no internment services. A Celebration of Life will be held at a date to be determined. Please contact the family if you wish to be kept apprised of the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions in Joyce's name be made to the (http://www.lung.org/) or Heartland Hospice (https://www.heartlandhospice.com/).
