She raised her family in Simpson County, MS before moving to Farmerville, LA where she spent the last 20 years of her life, as long as her health allowed. She then moved to Eads, TN to live with her daughter. She loved flowers and was so proud of her garden. Strangers would stop and knock on her door and ask if they could walk through her yard. When she wasn’t in her garden, she was fishing. She was an excellent fisherman and enjoyed it thoroughly. Joyce was a member of Crestview Baptist Church in Farmerville, LA where she would often sing solos. She loved her church family. Along with her parents, Joyce is also preceded in death by her husband, Alvin Woods; her son, Darrell Kelly; and her siblings, Kelly Jordan, William Earl Jordan, and Lois Speights. She is survived by her children, Debbie (Lee) Jones of Eads, TN, Kathy (Clay) Edrington of Collierville, TN, James (Roxanne) Kelly of Simpson County, MS, Sharron McNay of Braxton, MS, and Cynthia York of Braxton, MS; brother, Herbert Jordan of Simpson County, MS; 16 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren.
