Vered Klinghofer

I am so sorry about Joyce's passing at such a young age. She went through a lot. I met Joyce at the book club which she had help running for many years even from the hospital beds. I will miss her.

Ros Lotzof

Joycie was a wonderful lady and my Beading buddy. We played Maj Jong together and I was part of her book club for many years. We had many fun times together. She never complained about being sick even though she suffered so much! She is at peace. I will miss my beautiful friend. Deepest sympathy to Al, Dianna, and Alex.

Nancy Graver

Joyce and I went to Clark, many years ago. When I found myself in Chicago, we reconnected over a shared love of beading. May her memory be a blessing.
