    Joy was my father's favorite niece he love her. And she love him! She's my cousin and I'm going to miss talking with her and her Christmas cards with a little letter in it! To keep me up to date with things in town. RIP Joy till we meet again. (Duff) Carl Lincoln

    On Monday, I found out that my lovely great grandmother, Joyce Tucker, sadly passed away peacefully in her sleep. Although I knew it was coming, it still saddens me and was unexpected. Holidays are gonna be so different without you and your infamous coleslaw. I'm so lucky for the 20 years I got to spend with you. I love you so much Nana T <3

    Joyce was a Hanover presence. She helped out at St. Andrews with the nursery. Her daughter Kathy was a friend from school. A great loss for her family, but 93 years is a wonderfully long time to have her with you. Diane Campbell

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Joy (Joyce) Tucker (our Auntie Joy). We will never forget her kindness, love, and compassion for others. She was a person I (as a niece) admired when I was young and especially as I was an adult. She was an inspiration to me in my life when experiencing difficult times. We will miss her dearly. Her love for others and happiness of living a life blessed by God. Love to you forever, Auntie Joy. I love you and your family so much. Susan (Unangst) and Stephen Einhorn
