Joyce passed peacefully surrounded by her family on July 26, 2021 at her home. She was born November 2, 1936 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, John; daughters Kathryn Henson and Lori Plinke; and sons, John II (Clay) and Brett; and six grandchildren.

Joyce was an enthusiastic volunteer for the Mercy hospitals in Urbana and Springfield. She is especially sad to leave her fellow volunteers at Mercy Regional Medical Center for whom she wished a special recognition.
