Joyce L. Taylor, a beloved mother, daughter, sister, and gams passed away on September 4, 2023. She was born on June 9, 1962, to Sally (Kershaw) Mathews in Bristol, Pennsylvania, and was a remarkable individual who made a lasting impact on her family and friends.

Whether it was reading stories, crocheting masterpieces, or solving puzzles, Joyce immersed herself in every activity with dedication. Sports also held a special place in Joyce's heart. A fan of football and astro baseball, she would light up the room with her contagious energy whenever a game was on. Her passionate cheers and unwavering support for her favorite teams were truly infectious. Joyce’s warm smile and gentle heart will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege to have known her.

Joyce is preceded in death by her brother Elwood Matthews.
