Joyce's love of family and children always shined through. Her teacher's heart was evident to the very end. In addition to teaching more than 30 years, she earned her Masters Degree in Administration of Education from Rollins College to enhance her ability to pursue being the best teacher she could be. Her greatest desire was that all her family would come to know, love, trust and follow Jesus. We will miss walking in to find her singing along and enjoying her "Gaither Music". She was very loved and will be greatly missed. If you would like to pay your respects, you are welcome to attend the visitation at 12:00 pm and Celebration of Life service at 1:00 pm. The service will be held at First Baptist Church Orlando 3000 South John Young Parkway Orlando, FL 32805 in the Henry Chapel on June 2, 2022.
