Joyce, known to many as "Penny," was an avid reader who enjoyed family gatherings and traveling. She explored 48 states and many countries by car, ship, rail, and air.

She was cherished by her grandchildren, Kelsey Spain and Joshua Spain of Greensboro, NC, as well as several nieces and nephews in PA, VA, and CO. Joyce is also survived by her step-brother Jon (Valerie) Pensinger of Greencastle, PA.
