Joyce loved to dance and never missed an opportunity at any of her children’s weddings. She also enjoyed time with family and friends, her annual winter-escape trips to Florida with her sister and brother-in-law, playing bridge, and had a secret passion for playing the piano, which she was actually very good at, when she could find the time!
The family is grateful for the loving care provided by the 1st floor staff at St. Ann’s SCU, Portland Ave. facility and would like to extend a special thank you to them for their compassionate care over the years. She loved the staff, and they loved her.
