It is with deep sorrow and much love that our family announces the passing of Charlotte Sue Joyce, 85, of Blacksburg. She died Sunday, Jan. 10, 2021, at her home surrounded by the love of her family.
She was born in Murray, Kent., on Oct. 11, 1935. She will be remembered by everyone and all of those who grew to know her over the years. She will always remain in our hearts as the “queen of sass.”
She was a mother to some and a safe place to others, but she was always someone you knew you could come to and chat with about anything on your mind. She was and always will be a Virginia Tech fan who loved nothing more than celebrating and entertaining with those around her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Beuton Vance and Buell Donelson; her husband, Michael B. Joyce; and her daughter, Carol Anne Mehmood.
She is survived by her daughters Donna Hall (Dan) of Virginia Beach; Brenda Holdaway of Blacksburg and Susan Tafesse of Christiansburg; her sisters Carlotta Clark (Gerry) of Pearisburg and Patty Campbell (Larry) of Somerset, Kent.; her brother Sam Underwood (Susan) of Murray, Kent.; as well as her eight grandchildren, Isha, Heem, Nicole, Kelly, Victoria, Elias, Michael and Maleah.
The family would like to thank Good Samaritan for the compassionate and loving care they provided Charlotte and for the love and support shown to the family.
A graveside ceremony was held at the Westview Cemetery on Friday, Jan. 15, 2021. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
The family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made to Good Samaritan Hospice or the Parkinson’s Foundation. Arrangements by McCoy Funeral Home, Blacksburg.
