  1. I am saddened by the loss of Joyce. She was a good friend and coworker. She will be missed by myself and the TTI family. May she rest in the hands of Our Lord.

  2. Joyce was one of the strongest warriors I’ve ever seen. Diabetes treated her horribly, but I never heard her complain. She took each pain, each broken bone, every setback with courage and strength, and she participated in everything she possibly could at church, always with a smile.
    I’m so happy that now she isn’t facing any more crises, and she can rest comfortably in the arms of God.
    Rest in peace, Joyce – you have fought the good fight, and now your battle is over.

  3. She will be missed by all. Very sad news, have to remember she’s in no more pain. She can rest peacefully in the hands of the Lord.
