Born January 26, 1932, died November 23, 2009. Preceded in death by her husband, Robert C. Blackman, and also by her daughter, Rebekah L. Taylor; she is survived by grandsons, Joseph B. Taylor, Jr. (Carla) and James C. Taylor (Lisa); great- granddaughter, Rebekah C. Taylor; step-daughter, Dana Reed, and son-in-law, Joseph B. Taylor, Sr. Joyce will long be remembered by many friends, co-workers, and customers of the Avalon Eat-N-Park where she was employed for over 40 years. She and her husband Bob were members of the Evangel Temple, and Allison Park Assembly of God Churches, they had fellowship and friendships at both Churches. Joyce was taken from us by various injuries and complications over the past two years, but nothing could diminish her love and joy for her grandsons and great granddaughter, as well as her love for step-daughter Dana. Her love and caring for others will be missed by all, and will always be cherished by those who knew her. Private arrangements by GALLEY FUNERAL HOME, Dawson, PA.

She was a great lady, and loved her puppies too. Would always bring them a frosty or some lunch meat or something she cooked for them. she will be missed.

Joyce you were my Mother-In-Law, but after my Mothers death you became MOM to me, you were a fantastic GrandMother to both my Sons, and a truly beautiful Great GrandMother to Becca. None of us will ever forget how much you gave to all of us. Love Joe Sr.
