Joyce married her husband of 38 years, Paul, in 1982. Joyce and Paul lived in Weymouth, Florida, Boston, Hull, and most recently Pembroke for the last thirteen years. She worked at both Bank of New England and State Street for many years before retiring in 1998. Joyce always was there to lend a helping hand and will be remembered for her beautiful singing voice. She was in a performing band for many years when she was younger. Many of her nieces and nephews are forever grateful for her tutoring skills and patience. Her kindness and quick wit will be sorely missed.
