WARSHOW--Joyce, 70, educator, psychologist, filmmaker and activist, died at home on October 2, 2007 with her loving partner of 25 years, Dorothy Sander, at her side. Joyce started her career as a NYC junior high school teacher, then earned a Ph.D. in Psychology from Yeshiva University. She maintained a feminist psychotherapy practice for 30 years and authored and edited books, including the groundbreaking anthology "Lesbians At Midlife: The Creative Transition". At age 58, she became a filmmaker, winning international awards for her documentaries on lesbian feminist activities. She will be greatly missed by her brothers, Martin and Edward, her sister-in-law Edie and her best friend, Jocelyne, as well as her nephews, nieces, grandnephews and grandnieces and her very extended and chosen family. Services will be held Friday, October 5, at 11:30am at "The Riverside" 76th St. and Amsterdam Ave. Contributions can be made in her honor to Women Make Movies, 462 Broadway (Suite 500WS), NYC, NY 10013.
