We met Joyce when we started attending Felpham Methodist Church and were delighted to find that we had mutual friends elsewhere in the country. We thoroughly enjoyed working alongside Joyce at church int he Worship Group and various outreach events, holiday clubs and activity days. Joyce was always keen to get involved and share her expertise and talents with others. The church pantomimes were a particular joy and we have many happy memories of times spent together. Rest in Peace Joyce we know you will be dearly missed by family and friends alike.

Thank you Joyce for all your support on LABBS Board (or "Exec," as it was called then) when we served on it together. You were always so calm and efficient and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, too, for our lunches overlooking Chichester Cathedral - lovely memories of a lovely lady who left us too soon.



Thank you for all the lovely chats over the years ,you will be sadly missed xxx

Joyce played a very prominent part of my early days in Leeds as a student finding my way in a new world. We were both in the Leeds Polytechnic Library School (as it was then in the late '70,s - early '80's). She was a born organiser, outgoing, active and confident.
I could say bossy - but as I got to know her it was because she was organised and, even more importantly, cared enough to get things done properly. In my time in Leeds she played a very big part in my study life, committee life and social life. A very reliable and caring friend.

She was also part of a small group of friends who shared social and church activities. Towards the end of my time she once asked me if Jonathan had a girlfriend (Jonathan and I shared a house with others - 65 Hartley Avenue) to which I replied "not as far as I know. But if you are interested, you will probably have to chase him". Look what happened later. I don't quite know when they actually got together....

I will miss her a lot but I can cherish many good memories of a very good friend

I first met Joyce 40 years ago when we both applied for the same job - needless to say she got the job and I joined the team a few months later. We shared an office in two different buildings and I shall always remember with a smile the way she would talk encouragingly to her Apple II computer. She was a tremendous colleague and was such a joy to work with. Thank you Joyce for making the world a better place. You were the best of us.
With love,
David Haynes

Lovely Joyce,
Thank you for being such a wonderful friend and for the privilege of singing, competing and travelling with you.
An amazing Baritone I loved singing with you, especially competing in Spain. A special memory of our biggest competition and a fantastic holiday with the quartet, we achieved a pretty decent score too.

I’ll never forget your kindness when I struggled with anything, always supportive, uplifting and inspiring.

Thank you
Much love, Sarah xx
