Joyce L. Woodson
1944 - 2020
Joyce L. Woodson

Joyce L. Woodson, age 75, of Charlottesville, gained her angel wings on Saturday, November 7, 2020, at her home, from complications of Parkinson's Disease. Joyce was born December 5, 1944 in Charlottesville to the late James E. Lamb Sr. and the late Louise Johnson Lamb. She was a member of First Baptist Church of Park Street.

After high school, Joyce attended Tom Watson's Beauty School. She worked for several local salons over the years. Joyce also was a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. She enjoyed making people feel pretty. Her most important role in her life was caring for others. She spent years taking care of family and friends, no matter what the need. She had the biggest, kindest heart.

Surviving are her daughter-in-law, Angela Woodson of Crozet; loving companion, William Daniels of Charlottesville and their loving dog, "Manny"; special cousins, Keena Payne Katzenbach, of Raleigh, N.C. and Mackenzie Payne Brown of Kinston, N.C.; all her special Woodson family, and all the great friends she made while living on Holmes Avenue.

Along with her parents, Joyce was preceded in death by her brother, James "Jimmy" Lamb; her husband, Thomas "Fred" Woodson Jr.; her son, Thomas "Tom" Woodson III; and dear cousins, Kenneth F. Payne and his wife, Linda W. Payne of Roanoke.

To honor Joyce's final wishes there will be a memorial service on Saturday, December 5, 2020, at 2 p.m. at First Baptist Church, Park Street, Charlottesville.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given in Joyce's name to the Charlottesville/Albemarle SPCA at

I am deeply saddened by the news of Joyce passing, while watching FBC senior adult Bible study Tuesday. I've had the blessings of being in her presence at the FBCSABS on numerous occasions. She didn't just receive the knowledge of the Word, but loved and shared it by letting her light so shine that others would be blessed by her good deeds ( Matt. 5:16 ). She will be missed physically but not spiritually. Let us reflect on her good works and, may the Almighty God continue to empower us as we experience difficult times as these.

Dear family of Joyce, We are sorry for your loss. Joyce was such a kind neighbor to us living across the street on Holmes Ave. She loved watching our young children in the front doorway of 1006 and gave them Christmas gifts. We watched her care for her parents. We had a wonderful relationship with all the family as neighbors for our eleven years there. Peace be with you.

Remembering Joyce since our childhood growing up in the same neighborhood. Last time I saw her was about 20 years ago in the Food Lion on Pantops. We vowed to get together but never did unfortunately. I am saddened to learn of her passing. She was a lovely lady.
