I am a friend of Sara's (Townsend) and I always enjoyed seeing Sara's Gram on Facebook, hanging with the rest of us. She often made us laugh with her comments-what a great sense of humor she had! She will be missed by Sara, Kayla and all her family and friends.

I was saddened to hear of Joyce’s passing. I kept in touch with her after my husband , Jeff, passed away. She was a very special lady.

I have known Joyce my whole life she and my Mom were great friends and I continued helping Joyce sell Avon at my job.  She was one of the sweetest, and hardest working woman that I ever knew.  Even with her treatments she was up beat.  I know her family meant everything to her, and I'm praying for all of you as I know how much she will be missed.  I'm so sorry I missed the service yesterday my heart is so heavy but I know she is in a better place.

I would like to extend my condolences to Cindy, Jan, and the extended Sheetz family.  Joyce was a great friend and neighbor to our family through the years--and, of course, she aways made our day as the local Avon lady!  May the kindness and compassion of those around you bring comfort during this time of loss.
