Joyce was an artist at cooking and could create a family meal with only a few basic ingredients. If we had flour, water, salt and pepper with a little bacon grease a huge meal was in the works. If we had sugar, we had desert. She had an entrepreneurial spirit and challenged her children to chase their dreams. Joyce will be missed by all who remember her outgoing personality of her youth.\n\nThe family will receive visitors on Thursday, May 27 in the chapel of Carnes Funeral Home beginning at 5pm.
