  1. To Miss Joyce’s family ~ I was a student of Miss Joyce’s for all three years of high school in East Providence. It was my favorite class, made special by Miss Joyce’s brilliant style of encouraging the creative talents of her students. Class projects were often whimsical, sometimes practical, and always interesting and fun. To this day, I use skills that Miss Joyce introduced (“Always cut in the hinged end of scissors, not at the blade tips, turning paper in the direction of the cut versus driving the scissors.”). We all knew we were being taught by an exceptional artist ~ sharing her talent with students was a generous and immeasurable gift. I will forever be grateful for that and will continue to admire and appreciate such a wonderful teacher.
    With sincere sympathy,
    Susan Hirst Read, EPHS ’69

  2. I know that this condolence comes late, but I just had to tell you how heartbroken I was when I heard of Miss Joyces death. she was a dear friend to me more than someone that I just cared for and helped. I always enjoyed hearing her stories about her life and her beloved family and in turn she enjoyed my Curly stories, calling my dog that little imp. She always seemed so young to me if not physically, most certainely in spirit. I will truly miss her.
