Mike and family - we are so sorry to hear of Joyce's passing. Dan & I always talk about the good ole days when our kids were playing sports. I just came across an old picture of Joyce at Manahan holding Colin. She was a wonderful person. Please know you are in our thoughts.
Michael please accept our heartfelt sympathies and prayers for your loss. Please know we share your grief, the Jolin’s of NH
Mike and family, so sorry for your loss.. I played sports with Joyce in high school and she is the one to recruit me for broomball. She will be missed. Barb Dion
Mike and family my condolences for your loss of Joyce. Have not seen you since back in those early broomball days. Sounds like you made many special memories since then that you get to hold on to. May Joyce RIP.
My sister-in-law...gone too soon. I bet she is already playing cards with the angels!
Joyce, Who I always wanted and never knew I needed. A moral compass and the best mentor on what a loyal loving mother and wife should be.
Our deepest condolences to the Marquis family and friends from Kay Waite and staff at Sound Choice Cremation & Burials.
