Joyce was born on October 19, 1934 in Weymouth, MA to Harold Emmons and Jeannette (Welcome) Emmons.

Joyce enjoyed traveling across the country over the years. Joyce had a great sense of humor and she loved animals (especially cats), great movies, music, good books, long car rides and the Boston Red Sox.

Also, her beloved Siamese cat, Peanut.
The family would like to thank all the staff at Maine Veteran’s Home in Augusta for providing tender loving care to Joyce and her family for the past six years. MaineGeneral Hospice for being there during her last days. A special thank you to Cathy Lincoln and Susan Thornton who treated Joyce like she was their own mother.
