As a grandmother, "Grammy" spoiled me with ice cream and toys. She taught me how to play cards - and not just play, but play well.

As a woman, Joyce was strong beyond belief, with enduring convictions and a fierce (if sometimes stubborn) grasp upon her desires. She was a perfectionist that never failed to speak her mind for as long as she lived. And she lived her life of 96 years by the word of God. I will miss her greatly but will never forget all that she taught me.
