I so loved your Momma, Mary Joyce was our secretary for a few years, She was a loving and definitely had a sense of humor. Her alias name was Wilma, that was her ornery name. We loved your mom and she definitely keep us in line. LOL Some times I had a habit of walking off with her pen or stapler, Well she started putting her name on them, I wasn't the only one that did that. Mary joyce (Wilma) would come and find her stuff. We all loved her! She sure loved her children and grandkids. Thank you all for sharing her with us! So sorry for your loss! She will be missed! Sending hugs and Love your way. Sheila Lloyd

To the entire family, I just wanted you to know how much I truly enjoyed taking care of her oral health for the last 8yrs!! She was always so sweet, kind, respectful, and positive in her words! She would always talk of her family especially the ones that lived in Nixa close by. My deepest condolences and prayers during this difficult time. I will miss seeing her smiling face and sweet spirit too! Crystal B.
