I worked with Joy at Electri-Tec in orland for a short time. She was a very pleasant person, always smiling and laughing. Sorry to hear of her passing. I have thought of her through the years since with fond memories.

Joy was more than a friend, she was my hero, my HB (handicapped buddy). I am blessed to have called her one of my dearest friends and am a better person to have known her. I will always remember her, Carolyn, Gary and I sharing many laughs around the kitchen table and in their garage. I am comforted knowing she's in heaven with Gary looking down on us. They are both our guardian angles now. Rest in peace, my sweet sweet friend, til we meet again. Love you forever.
