Winnie Mae (Scott) Joice

Winnie Mae (Scott) Joice, age 93, went home to be with her Lord on Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at Hickory Pointe Care Center, Oskaloosa, KS.

She was a "stay-at-home" mom and loved her family and friends. Her love overflowed on her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews. Her legacy was her faith in Jesus Christ, her Savior and Lord. Winnie was an active member of First Southern Baptist Church.

She is also survived by six grandchildren, Robb Joice (Meridian, Idaho), Charles Spurlock, (Lisa), Topeka, KS., Amy Spurlock, Lawrence, Kelly Valbuena (Richard), Lawrence, Katie Schwada (Steve), Lawrence, and Kara Strahm (Matthew), Lawrence. Winnie is also survived by 12 great-grandchildren.

Funeral service will be 10 am. Saturday, October 3, at First Southern Baptist Church. Burial will follow at Oak Hill Cemetery. The family will receive friends Friday from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, the family request donations to Grace Hospice, or First Southern Baptist Church, in care of Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home, 601 Indiana St. Lawrence, KS 66044.

I am sorry for your loss. There are never the right words to tell someone the thoughts about the loss of loved one but I hope this helps a little

Odell and Mary Wiley were my parents (both have passed) and lived at 530 Kasold Drive in Lawrence. They and the Joices spent many good times together. Maybe they can continue to do so now. My sympathies to your family.

How thankful I am that we were lucky enough to be neighbors of Hal & Winnie. After Hal passed away Winnie would come down to our house and we had a wonderful time visiting. She loved Hal & took such good care of him. Her family and her faith was always the most important thing in her life. we are so glad she was our neighbor.

Winnie and Hal were a wonderful couple and will be remembered by all of us who loved them so very much. My deepest sympathy goes out especially to Sandra and Charles and all their family members. Winnie is at peace now. I'm so sorry I can't be at the celebration of her life on Saturday, but my thoughts will be there with you.
With my love, Sandra (Sandy) Nease
