  • "To Joyce's Family, My sincere sympathy on this sad occasion. I have known Joyce for nearly 30 years and consider her a dear friend. I visited her at DCMH last week and gave her the Annointing of the Sick. I will miss her smile and her sense of humor. May God welcome her into His loving arms. It is natural to grieve when we lose someone we love. But don't let your grief be stronger than your gratitude to God for having known and loved Joyce, and being loved by her in return. God bless you."
    -Father Michael Woemper

  • "We loved seeing Joyce when we visited Eugene over the last several years. She had a heart of gold and such a sweet personality. She was always interested in what was happening in our lives and loved to visit. She will be so missed. May she find true peace in the arms of our loving Savior. "
    -Mark & Judy Berger
