Joyce loved to socialize with family and friends every chance she got. She loved animals, collecting angels, playing Bejeweled, playing cards and was a woman who never missed a New York Yankee’s game, win or lose. Joyce was a huge supporter of the disabled veterans and would donate any chance she could. She loved her family most of all, being able to spend time with them was her greatest love.
