Joyce became a member of Promise Land Baptist Church where she served on various ministries throughout her time of being a member. She truly loved attending her church. She attended Russell Grove High School.
Joyce loved spending time being with family and friends, especially nieces and nephews whom she cherished as her own. As one niece said, “even though she couldn’t drive, she always found a way to show up”.
