It is with heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of my wife. She peacefully passed on 1/26/2012 @ 12:40 A.M. My son and two daughters were with me to say goodbye on her journey to a better place. We were preparing to celebrate our 50th anniversary on April the 7th of this year. We were also looking forward to celebrating, on 9/18/20012, the 8th year of her transplanted lung.  She made the most of what she considered a great gift of life and attempted to live life to the fullest.  She was an inspiration and joy to everyone she touched.  She was a true mentor to countless. We will surely miss her.  Arrangements are pending at this time.  On behalf of my family I want to thank everyone for their prayers and support.   

Best Regards,

Jim Joyce
