To Janice and the rest of the Joyce's family - Denise and I express our deepest sympathies to you in the passing of your wife, mom and grandmother. Joyce was always friendly, ready to help and showed the love of Christ in everything she did. We will miss her here on earth but know that we will be reunited with her in heaven.

Prayers of comfort for Joyce's family and friends. The memories of my childhood are filled with good times at the Boersma house. Joyce was the 'other mom' across the street. Thank you for being a positive roll model and a wonderful family friend. I know you're truly home now. Maybe catching up on old Garden Home memories with Sam & Elaine and many others. Blessings and love to those who wait to see you again.

To the Family of Joyce M Boersma from Carol A Armistead (mother of James Boersma Armistead) - Joyce's life represented the love of Jesus Christ in her relationships with me, my son, and our family. I loved her. We loved her. She will be missed, but my thoughts of her will always give me peace and joy. A financial gift was made to Evangelical Child and Family Agency (E.C.F.A.), Wheaton, IL in honor of Joyce's loving memory.
