Joyce was married to Luke Harvilchuck, her loving husband of 59 years. They me while he was attending flight school in Pensacola. After many duty stations, they settled in Gulf Breeze, Florida where she resided until her death.
Joyce was a warm, caring wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was deeply loved by her family and friends and enjoyed going out to eat and socializing. She and her best friend, Cile Sorrell spent many years shopping and eating out together. They enjoyed reminiscing about their great adventures.
Mom loved her family and always said all of her daughters were different and helped her in different ways. She loved going out to fancy restaurants with her oldest daughter, Sue and her husband, Bob. She believed that no meal was complete without dessert. Her middle daughter, Janie was not only one Mom’s night caregivers but there was nothing ever broken in her house that she couldn’t fix for Mom after daddy passed away. Gail was her third daughter and she made sure Mom had new outfits to wear and always took Mom to Biloxi on special occasions. Biloxi was also one of Mom’s special places.
Joyce is survived by her oldest sister Mary Conner of Mobile and daughters Sue Kincaid (Bob), Janie Hart, and Gail Massey (Jim) as well as her granddaughters Adrienne Hart, Jennifer Hart, and Kimmy Hart Bennett (Paul). She is also survived by her grandsons, Lucas Massey and Tyler Massey (Ciara). Lorelai Hart and Pierson Massey are her Great Grandchildren.
