Joyce is also survived by nieces, nephews and many cousins.

Joyce was also preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Wyverne and Leon; and two nephews, Brad and Jarett.

A celebration of her life will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019, at DeJong-Greaves Celebration of Life Center, 917 Blondeau St., Keokuk, with the Rev. Jeff Bixby officiating. Burial will follow in Keokuk National Cemetery.
