Joyce Lanell Durham

Obituary Condolences

DURHAM (Pruett), Joyce Lanell Joyce Lanell Durham (Pruett) of Austin, age 78, passed peacefully on December 24, 2018 after a short but courageous battle with Cancer. Joyce was a native Austinite and graduated from McCallum High School in 1958. After winning a beauty contest she was awarded a scholarship at Isabell's University of Beauty Culture, graduating in 1961. This led to a long and abundant career as a hairstylist working alongside her closest friends at D. Reagan's, The Upper Cut, and most recently Cleopatra's. Joyce was a Texan through and through. With her distinct Texas vernacular she could weave a tale like no other. She loved all things Texan including Lake Travis, Lockhart Barbecue, Port Aransas, and Willie Nelson. She will forever be in the hearts of all who knew and loved her including many of her clients, some whom she has had the pleasure of styling their hair for over 40 years. Joyce loved her grandchildren and spent many hours throwing baseball's with Grandson Seth, and baking cookies with Granddaughter Havana. She also loved swimming and cooking with her daughter at heart, Nicole Pace Bohmann (Griggs.) Joyce is preceded in death by her husband, Charles Durham, and her parents Earnest and Geraldine Pruett. She leaves behind her loving brother, Ralph Pruett of Denver Colorado, her Son Guy Durham, Daughter Julie Hiegert and husband Eric, grandchildren Havana Hiegert and Seth Allen all of Austin; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Services will be held at Cook-Walden Capital Parks Mausoleum in Pflugerville on Saturday January 12th at 2:00pm, with Pastor Charlie Johanson officiating.
