    Joyce was a wonderful Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Niece, Cousin, and Friend. She had a big heart, with love for all of the family. Joyce will always have a very special place in my heart. I will truly miss, “My Favorite Cuz”. Rest in Peace sweet Lady!

    Dear Family…This came as a shock to me, as i did not know Joyce was ill. Please know that I will say prayers for all of you for strength in the coming days. Joyce was always so very kind to me. I loved talking to her whenever I’d run into her out and about. Now she can look after Tanner (my nephew) until we get there one day! God Bless You All! May you find peace in your hearts one day soon…JMChilders

    My family and I are blessed to have known her. Joyce was a wonderfully sweet and thoughtful person. She welcomed us wholeheartedly when life’s circumstances landed us as one of her neighbors! We are forever greatful for her kindness.

    My deepest condolences to the Konfrst family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Revelation 21:3,4 where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all death and suffering.
