She leaves behind a brother Tom Robbins, her three daughters, Kellee Rodarte, Lori Reusch, Julie Holt with son-in-law Bill, two nieces, Jill Hatten, and Cristin Stevens along with 5 beautiful granddaughters: Whitney Hutto (Hardy), Rylee Frost (Jeremy) McKenzie Carey (Mark), Kelsey Crawford (Legofi), Cydnee Rodarte (Austin), and 9 great grandchildren.

Joyce loved her entire family wholeheartedly. Always there with patience, understanding, worldly advice, and quick wit.
There will be no formal services, per Joyce's request.
When her immediate family chooses to gather, her request would be to keep it casual, filled with memories, and little mourning. In her words, "I prefer to be remembered in life as happy, full of love for all, and bossy!"
