"I will miss my sweet neighbor, Joyce, so much! She was so nice, a good cook and a wonderful gardener. She had the loveliest yard in the neighborhood. I often saw her trimming her plants with scissors! And she made a tomato pie that was beyond delicious! She loved her Lord and we had many chats about love, loss and just life. God bless you, Joyce, as you join God?s host of angels. You are loved and you will be greatly missed by your family and all the rest of us who were privileged to know you."

"Joyce was a beautiful lady - inside and out. Every time I saw her she was smiling and laughing, even when she wasn\'t feeling well. She had the \"Vaughan\" spirit, strength and humor that I so loved. She was a fashionable lady. It had been a few years seen I saw Joyce but I enjoyed our visits on Facebook, sharing our times and family memories together. She was one of my favorite cousins and I will miss her sweet spirit. She was always an inspiration to me. RIP, sweet Joyce. Sheila Major Mastrangelo"
