Joyce Marie Menefee, went to be with our Lord on April 6, 2021. She was a woman before her time.

She grew up in Madison County where she met the love of her life, Henry Menefee. She followed him through thick and thin. And, together they managed a Two Way Radio Station for 10 years.

Joyce was a loving mother who devoted her entire life to raising 4 children. She was a true pioneer and artistically creative, as demonstrated through her beautiful poems. Joyce's interests were many she loved books, songs, people, animals and tending to her garden. She was a unique and caring individual who treated everyone like they were her next of kin. And, she will be remembered for her quick wit, caring heart and unconditional love.

Joyce was a long standing, loyal and true friend to my mother, Margaret Ann White (who passed away 3/23/18), and we used to live in the same subdivision, Rainbow Acres, off Highway 30. Mom loved to visit Joyce and they shared a mutual love of plants and A&M Garden Club. My mother used to say there was some form of plant growth hormone in Joyce´s fingers because she could root anything and plants always grew for her. She dearly loved her family, and we would visit her and Henry to have coffee. She always had the welcome mat out. She would come to my house to visit with mom too. They reminisced about garden club and friends. She will be remembered fondly and God´s heavenly garden has another Angel.
