Joyce L. Lillard was born March 23, 1943. She lived to be 77 years old. Our wonderful mother went to be with her sister and parents on Sunday, July 26, 2020.
She leaves behind two sons, Chris and Troy; three grandchildren, Justin and his wife Rachel, Kimsey and Kaycee; two great grandsons, Case and Karson; two nieces, Dee Ann, who was like a daughter, and Cheryl; one nephew, Jeff; one ex daughter-in-law, Sally; and Kerri.
Joyce worked and retired from Whitaker Cable in Excelsior Springs, Shelbyville, Ky., and Manhatten, Kans. Joyce retired as a Supervisor. She loved to play Bingo. Her and her sister would travel to other states to play. Later in her life she developed a love for Royals and Chiefs. We were so happy she got to see them both win championships! She was also a selfless person, taking time off to care for her dying sister. Always worrying about others before herself. She’s at peace now with God and she won’t be forgotten.
Private services to be held by the family. Cards can be sent to Troy and Chris Lillard, 318 Virginia Rd., Excelsior Springs, MO 64024.
