She is in GOD's hands now and with Jerry and Tristian. I am so so very sorry for the family. I know you have all been through a lot. I pray that GOD holds you all in his hands and helps you through these trying times and keeps everyone safe. I sure will miss her post on facebook. May GOD bless you with some peace to know she is free to roam without pain and look down on her kids to keep them all safe .You all are loved.

My sympathies to Joyces family and relatives, including children and grandchildren. I remember Joyce, her participation at church, her care for her daughter and granddaughter, and her hospitality toward our parishioners, especially in my first years as the parish priest at Saint Augustine of Canterbury Parish in Hecker. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the funeral services, as I am recovering from surgery. I will keep Joyce and all of you in my prayers. - Fr. Von Deeke
