Joyce Elaine Stein Obituary
February 10, 1931 - January 29, 2017 Joyce Elaine Stein passed away on January 29, 2017. It was the best possible, most peaceful death one could imagine. Joyce was the first in her family to go to college; she started at UCLA at age 16. She was a classically trained pianist who demanded that her three sons take piano lessons from an early age. She was a sophisticated consumer of the arts. She was also an accomplished poet. She travelled many times to Europe, Africa, Asia, South America, Australia and islands in between. She always preferred the floor of a hut to a hotel bed, because she wanted to know the people. She volunteered for many years at the ACLU and worked on numerous Democratic political campaigns. If she didn't like what she saw, she spoke up. Loudly. Joyce is survived by her sons Abbott and wife Mary Joy, Adam and wife Berta, Barney, and 4 grandsons, William, Zak, Nick, and Gabe. In lieu of a memorial, the family asks that you make donations to one of her favorite causes, the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, or the Southern Poverty Law Center.
