When she retired from there she started her own tax preparation business and really enjoyed getting to know her clients, many of which became friends.

Joyce was a cancer survivor who viewed every day as a gift and was never one to back down from anything she believed in.

We have had the pleasure of knowing Joyce some 20 plus years. Not only as a neighbor but as our "Tax Lady". We looked forward to seeing her every year. Some more than others.......depending on the outcome. Either way, she was such a joy to be around. She always wanted to know about our family. She was a sincerely caring person. To her dear family and friends, please accept our since condolence. She was so proud of her family. We will miss her.
