Joyce was a true Christian. In John 13:35 Jesus himself said. "By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." Joyce did that each and every day. She was a cheerful and faithful bus driver. I worked with her at MCCSC, and I best remember her for her tireless efforts in heading up the promotion of a fundraiser for a fellow employee who needed to have a kidney transplant fund established. The young immigrant-bus monitor would have died if the transplant had been delayed due to the lack of needed funds. Joyce saw the immediate need and quickly volunteered to do all she could do to help. Within a month of the close of the school year, that young woman underwent an emergency, life-saving surgery. Joyce not only loved in word, but in deed,

I met Joyce from her time as an MCCSC bus driver. I am a teacher at Templeton and a mother of 3 now grown children. She would drive my children to Templeton from Jackson Creek when they were students there. They would ride the entire middle school/high school route with her till the bus was empty, ready to be loaded with elementary students. Over the years, each one of my 3 sat in the seat behind her. They got to know her quite well. They loved Ms. Joyce! She also drove them around the state for the Bloomington High School South Panther Regiment band competitions. She had a great laugh, a heart of gold and was a sweet lady. Warmest wishes to her family for strength and smiles as you gather together and share happy memories.
