    Joyce has given us so may wonderful memories. When she entered a room she lit it up with her quips. Her excapades in our Ceramics Class had us rolling with laughter they were so witty. Once, when we were photographing all the projects that were on display for the Ceramics Show, there was Joyce, bending down behind the table so that her face popped up next to the bust of herself. Since all the memories she left us with will always be recalled…………………..she has not left us. When we think of her she continues to inspire us to zero in on the lighter side of life.
