Joy’s love of “words”, both spoken and written, found her membership in the Canfield Writer’s Club a great outlet for their use. At the urging of her Grandsons, Joy has written her first book called, “Literary Soup” and was working toward its publication at the time of her death.
Joy and “the love of her life”, William Perry Thomas—just plain Bill, celebrated 66 years of marriage on May 8, 2020. Known as the “Pie Lady”, her devotion to Bill was expressed in presenting him with his favorite homemade pie (any kind) at dinner time.
Joy leaves behind a wonderful husband Bill, two daughters Melanie and Heidi, and three grandsons Sal, Mike and Sammy who all love her and will miss her very much. Joy always made an impact and brought “joy” to those around her with her kindness will be greatly missed by friends and family alike.
