|In memory and in celebration of someone who made this world a better and brighter place... Let the memory of Joyce be with us forever.|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our mom, Joyce Neil, 76, born on March 2, 1937 and passed away on March 25, 2013. We will love and remember her forever.
"Joyce would have been 79 today. I miss being able to call her on her birthday and tease her because she was now a year older than me!! I miss hearing her - "Thank you, Jesus!" I miss having her put her finger in the air to figure out which way we should go when we weren't sure. I miss being able to talk to her on the phone. I look forward to seeing her again!!!"
"Joyce is greatly missed by all of us! All the cousins always had such a good time together! She was so active in the KB and Brody reunions.
Think about her often!"
"Suzanne, Cherie, Casey, & John: Remembering all of you today, and of course, Joyce. I can hear and feel her laughter, her hiccups, her prayers, her joy and love for all of you… it warms my heart to have those priceless memories. You are all in my thoughts, prayers, and heart -- today, and always."
"It was hard this year not to get a birthday card off to Joyce!
Thought about her today! And wished her a Happy Birthday in my thoughts!"
"Suzanne and Cherie - - What a special friend your mother was to me. I miss her so much!! We've known each other since the second grade. (That is a day or two!!) I remember when I hadn't seen her for about 10 years. I was in LA for 6 weeks. I headed over to see Joyce. I wasn't sure what to expect. When I got there, we started talking and it was like we had just seen each other the day before. We never skipped a beat!! There are so many good memories. We could share just about anything!! I remember one time Joyce, Sandi and I were together. Joyce was showing us around LA - - just driving. We were laughing and talking about our current lives. We got to laughing so hard Joyce had to pull over and stop. She couldn't see where she was going!! She is one of the first people I will look up in heaven!! She loved you girls so much. In those last couple years she often told me how good you were to her and how much she appreciated you. I think of you two often - - and pray for you. I know you miss your Mom even more than any of the rest of us could. She will be looking for you on those streets of gold when Jesus comes."
"Happy 77th Joyce! What a wonderful woman. Several quotes and thoughts have flooded my heart this weekend in anticipation of Joyce's birthday. For me, this quote shouts 'Joyce': "One person can make a difference, and everyone should try," C.S. Lewis. And: "You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body," C.S. Lewis. So happy to know Joyce, the one woman dynamo, lives on, and in fact, will be/has been given a new body to boot! Another saying that always reminds me of Joyce: "Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning, the devil says 'Oh crap, she's up.'" Seriously… totally Joyce. Miss you."
"Happy Birthday mom, I miss you everyday! I bet you are cooking up a fabulous feast in heaven and will be celebrating in style. You are in my heart forever... I love you."
"Remembering Joyce on her 77th with a lot of love and laugher she. was.a great cousin and friend"
"Its been just a few short months since you've passed, and oh my, the hurt and sadness are still there. You were such an awesome woman, an amazing example of faith and hope...you will forever be remembered, and the memories will be forever cherished."
"Joyce was such a beautiful and caring soul and touched many lives..I'm thankful to have known such an amazing woman! The trips to her house in LA during the summer will always be remembered!! Love you Joyce!!!!!!!!!!"
"I only had one opportunity to meet Joyce and it was only for a few hours, but have been e-mailing her a lot in the last 10 years. She was a wonderful person and a family person. My prayers go to the family."
"I have many memories, but what I remember the best is every time we went to California the trip wasn't complete until we went to the Neil's house and hung out with Joyce and the kids. I was always so excited when we got there. Laughter and fun was to be had at the Neil house, thank you so much for those memories! Lucky me to have you as family. :)"
"Joyce, was full of laughter, deep love forJESUS, happy go lucky, deep abiding trusting in the blessed hope. This is what everyone of us need in the battle of life: a heart that has come to rest in GOD; a will fully surrendered. That is the great secret.that, alone will bring us through with honor. The Music of the Gospel leads us home. John 14:1-3."
"Joyce was a dear cousin and lovely lady! She reminds me so of Fay. I shall miss her! May her memory be eternal!"
"I. Will miss Joyce for all our phone chats, traveling with Dennis and I
The trip to Iowa with 7 cousins great times. So many memories.
Love is forever. My love is with you girls and the guys she really enjoyed."
"Such a beautiful eulogy. It honored your mom so perfectly -- capturing the wonderful impact her life had on this world and the one to come, and of the depth of how much she will be, and is, missed. Thank you for sharing her with me, it was a splendid blessing to know her and love her, and to be loved in return. The memory of her great humor and joy of life will forever warm my heart."
"Jesus is coming soon and we've got to be ready! Joyce believed in the return of the Lord and had no problem sharing this fact. Since relocating to Virginia I have continued the practice of sending out cards to the sick and those not seen in service for a while. This was Joyce s' selfless contribution of sharing love. I will always remember Joyce and I will smile."
"We had a great time on one of our trips to the Brody Reunion in Iowa. Joyce just made it more fun with all her laughter and gab! I will miss her and loved her like a sister! We will meet again in a better place!"
"I can say nothing was better then hearing Joyce laugh! I can't remember her not smiling. Dustin went on a road trip with Donna, Marly, Joyce, Tammy and Sydnee....his comment was..."Joyce and Marly keep nipping at each other.....very lovingly put. We will miss our dear Joyce.....memories stay forever in our hearts!"
"For a small lady, Joyce sure left a big footprint; I miss her; but, praise God! We will see her again in His glorious kingdom!"
"Whenever I hear the word "wonderful" I will think of Joyce. If she found some new piece of knowledge, it was always "wonderful" Thank you for your possitive responses. Til we are together again, when Jesus comes to get us. There is Love!!!"
"my aunt was a wonderful person you had to know her, she was there for me many times and those i will treasure, we will see you again just like you always said love you lots misty"
"Mom, we love you and miss you. We will see you again!"
"The Neil family would like to thank you for sharing and celebrating the life of Joyce Joann Neil, someone who made this world a better and brighter place.
I love you mom...."
