Our deepest condolences to Joyce’s family and close friends and to the STS community. Stan and I both worked with Joyce at STS, Stan working with her for many more years then I. I later reconnected with Joyce as we shared Breast Cancer stories. I would see her sometimes at the JGH as we shared the same Dr’s. Joyce was always a happy positive person. Always smiling and laughing! And I would make her repeatedly tell me the story of how she delivered a baby in her bathtub at home, as there was no time to get to hospital… She always made us laugh and smile. She will be missed XOXO

Condolences to Joyce’s family. Very sad news. We worked together at STS and haven’t seen each other for many years but if someone were to ask me to describe Joyce, it would be exactly as the picture that is posted. A beautiful girl with a fabulous smile…that she seemed to carry with her everywhere! Rest in peace, Joyce.

Such a nice girl! I worked with her in NSB/Epicor/Aptos days. She worked hard and cared about what she did and us. We had precious conversations at the coffee station. I had the pleasure of exercising with her. What a strong worman! Lately we exchanged emails.
To her family, I wish that the time will help you. She will be very missed.

Jeannette SylvestreNovember 25, 2021 at 10:06 pm
I met Joyce through a Kirkland exercise class over 10 years ago, she always had that wonderful smile and an almost awe as she listened to your story. Always positive even as we endured many a sore muscle from our bootcamp classes. Joyce was a true and fearless warrior. My deepest condolences to Justine and Cynthia’s family and friends. Joyce may be gone but she will never be forgotten . Rest in peace my dear friend
CynthiaDecember 21, 2021 at 1:14 am

I met Joyce at Kirkland arena while taking Pickleball lessons. Then we continued to meet up and play together. Joyce was always smiling, pleasant, and a good Pickleball player. She enjoyed playing. I was quite saddened to hear of her passing. ( only found out today, July 11, 2022). She was a remarquable lady with a big heart . My most deepest sympathies to her husband, children, extended family and close friends. You have lost a precious gem.
