   She was born on November 14, 1966, in Fayette County, a daughter of the late Ray Hubert and Joyce Cecile Lovejoy Cummings.

   In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her step-son, Virgil Sheppard.

   Joyce Ann was a fun loving mother, grandmother, and friend to many.  She lived everyday as if it was her last and was always making memories.  Joyce Ann had a big heart and never met a stranger.  Those who knew and loved her will never forget her kind soul, joyous spirit and infectious laugh.
