She lovingly raised seven children, Richard Berry, Michele Pyrtle, Michael Berry Jr., Kim Hills, Cindy Smith, Jeff Berry, and Debbi Hajny.

Joyce loved bingo, finding a great bargain at the thrift stores, and she collected many things. She retired from John Deere, where she was a forklift operator and welder.

Joyce is survived by her son, Richard Berry of Colona; her daughter and son-in-law, Michele and Tim Pyrtle of Charlotte, North Carolina; son-in-law, Dave Hajny of East Moline; 12 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and a special aunt, Viv Wilker. She was preceded in death by her husband, Mike; her children, Kim, Mikey, Cindy, Debbi and Jeff; her parents; and her Meemaw, Pearl Prescott.

The family would like to give special thanks to all the visiting nurses, Genesis Hospice, and special caregiver, Lisa Rossi, for the wonderful care given to Joyce.
