Together they had five children. January 30th of this year would have been their 55th wedding anniversary.\n \nAnyone who knew Joyce, knew that aside from her family (everyone was family!) the things she loved best were music and flowers/plants! She could never get enough of music and there was never enough room inside or out for all the flowers and plants she wanted!\n \nShe made quilts for weddings and babies, her children have many fond memories of playing under a quilt she was working on. Until they were old enough to help, that is!\n \nWe know that Joyce is having many happy reunions on the other side. We will miss her dearly, but we are so glad that she is not in pain anymore. She has been loved by so many and has loved so deeply. She has "adopted" so many people into our family and lives. She has been wife, mother, sister, Aunt Jo, Grandma Gardner, dear friend and many other roles in her life. Joyce was preceded in death by her parents Leland and Esta Bell Taylor, sister Esta Taylor, brother Ray Taylor, grandson William Thomas, and granddaughter Gaej Dea. She is survived by Husband Dave Gardner, sons David Lee, Jason, and Jeremy, daughters Jana Gardner (Kevan Clark), Dina (Robert) Thomas, brother Terry Taylor, niece Dawn Gardner (Morgan Aiken, Cherokee Dea, Justin Dea) grandchildren Tanisa Crosby, April Richardson, Alex, David, Miriam and Katherine Thomas, Shelby Gardner, Keyan Clark, Elyssabeth Davis, Danica Aiken, and Buddy Wippler.\nJoyce has shaped our lives in such a way that we will carry her with us every day. Not goodbye, just see you later!
