This Obituary Has One Condolence

  1. Bill and I send our sincere sympathy to each one of you, your families, Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren. Joyce was a big part of who we are from the time we were in the college and career class she taught at Bethany. She was a good listener and provided an atmosphere to learn as well as setting an example of the Christian life.
    It is with deep regret that we are not able to be at her Memorial service. We didn’t transport students today or yesterday so I cannot have time off on Wednesday as we are short drivers. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Family. Carl you have been there for our family through 3 deaths and I know God will lead you as you celebrate your Mother’s life. May God richly bless you all.
