Joyce was my first cousin. I remember going to Aunt Eula's during summer vacation time and Joyce and I would play the old 45 records on her record player and write down the words to our favorite songs. Then we could get so goofy and sit outside and just laugh at nothing. Drove Aunt Eula crazy. We lost touch several years ago but some memories will never die. Condolences to her family whom she loved with all her heart.

I worked with Joyce and had a lot of good times with her. She was a sweet person ! One time at a party at her house we survived a Tornado but it was pretty scary with the walls going on and out. Had some good times with her at the Eagles when my husband played in a band. I liked dancing with.Her , she was a good dancer. So Sorry for your loss!

Sorry to hear of Joyce's passing. Prayers to the family members. I remember going over and staying all night with Joyce a few times when we were both younger. It was fun to visit and spend time with her and Uncle Roy and Eula. Our Felty side is getting smaller. Prayers again for all.

I met Joyce years ago when she and I worked at Bryan Manor together. She was such a nice kind person, loved being in her presence. She made me laugh, she always had a smile. Just a very down to earth person. I have not seen Joyce for years, but have thought of her often. Prayers to the family. God Bless all of you.
