Tabor High School. She was a faithful member of Advent Moravian Church for 40 plus years, and was on the church board of elders.  Joyce retired from BB&T with 30 plus years of service.  She loved being outdoors tending to her flowers, and watching the birds, but what she loved most of all were her grandchildren.

Wooten, Jr. (JoAnn); sister, Geraldine Cope; and brother-in-law, Daniel Anthony Morelli, Jr.

The family will receive friends from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM at the church prior to the service.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Advent Moravian Church, 1514 W Clemmonsville Rd, Winston-Salem, NC 27127.  Online condolences may be made at www.hayworth-miller.com.
