Joy’s compassionate heart was focused on the needs of other people. She sought to do anything

possible to lend a helping hand. Joy was a member of Cambridge City Christian Church where she put

her faith to work by growing in her knowledge of God’s Word and by joyfully serving people in any way

she could. Children were Joy’s passion and she adored (and spoiled) her precious grandchildren,

neighbor kids, church kids, and any other child who might be nearby.
