Joyce Kay JEFFREY was born on June 27, 1941, to James and Hilda SIX WADE. She graduated from Fairfield High School and went on to further her education at Parson's College (sic) in Fairfield. On July 3, 1960, she was united in marriage to the love of her life, Edwin JEFFREY at the First Christian Church in Fairfield. The two celebrated 59 years of marriage before he passed away on March 25, 2020. Joyce worked at Louden's and Fairfield Glove in the bookkeeping department for many years. She was a gifted musician and played the organ and piano for 20 years at the First Christian Church in Fairfield and then at the First Presbyterian Church with Shirley Nixon. Joyce accompanied many youths for solos and musical contests. She preformed (sic) at Christmas Cantatas with Shirley and played for the Fairfield Lion meetings, as well as many weddings and funerals. She delighted in her family and time spent together on their acreage with the wildlife and birds.

Ed and family became her caregivers until Ed's passing. She moved to Parkview Care Center in April and the family wishes to thank the staff for their loving care.
