    I had the pleasure of working with Joyce during the last 10 years or so of her career. She was always so pleasant and helpful to all of us. She was a dear, kind and sweet person, and she was also a wealth of knowledge. We were all so sorry to hear of her recent illness and now her passing. Though I am sure it was not as much as her “blood” family, those of us in her work family loved and cherished her, too. Rest in Peace sweet Joyce !

    We are praying for all of you during this difficult time. I have so many memories of the fun times I had with Joyce in Shady Grove and also in Nashville. I am just so sorry and wish I could be there. I loved Joyce, her siblings, her dear parents and dear Ma and Pa Totty. Joyce was such a sweet, and dear person, like a sister. Blessings to all of you!

    I had the pleasure of working with Joyce for many years; and it was indeed a pleasure. She knew so much and was always willing to share that knowledge and to help anyone. She was a lovely lady and will be greatly missed.

    Joyce was a very special person. I worked with her for many years and she always exhibited a sweet, kind, and helpful spirit. I am saddened at her passing as I know her family is. My prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
