She is survived by her children, Sam (Birdie) George, Jon (Cheryl) Barrett, Debbie (Dale) Baldwin, Joel (Becky) Barrett, Gary (Beverly) Barrett, and Staci (Todd) Bates; 21 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren. Joyce’s family would like to thank the Visiting Angels, Hospice of Summa and her church family for all their love and care.
