  • Our dear cousin Joyce. You will be missed. Rest in peace.

  • David and I are heartbroken with the loss of Joyce. We met her and Barry over 10 years ago at Kelly’s in Port Penn and our Tuesdays have been spent with them ever since. Until the loss of Barry and Covid. Our lives have been blessed with their friendship and kindness. They are definitely missed, and our lives have been changed by them not being in it. I’m sure Joyce is smiling again, being with Barry. Rest in peace my dear friend.

  • I WILL MISS SEEING JOYCE AT KELLYS BAR IN PORT PENN. MAY SHE FOREVER REST IN PEACE.
