October 9, 1933 - June 11, 2022
Joyce Elaine Boyer was the eldest of 5 children, born Oct.9, 1933 to Fred and Beth Cook in Wilber, Wa. She found her peace and went home to her Lord and Savior on Saturday morning, 6/11/2022. She was surrounded by her family. Joyce and husband Harold celebrated 61 years of marriage. Together they raised 4 children. After the loss of their son, Jeff, Joyce went on to provide respite care for special needs children in Grant County. She also opened an in-home daycare creating bonds that have lasted a lifetime, as many of those children remained in her life as extended family. She continued her calling in caring for special needs children in working for the Moses Lake School District as a para-professional until her retirement in 1998. Joyce was an involved member of the Moses Lake community. She served with elections, blood drives, Kiwanas & People for People. She was always there to help anyone in need. Joyce looked forward to spending time with her sisters. Good times calm digging, exploring Alaska or long weekends at the Cole ranch. Whenever together as family there was always laughter, good food and someone looking to prove their “guts” at the family card games. She would also say one of her most noted achievements was the fact that she never ran out of toilet paper. Joyce is survived by her husband Harold. Daughter Alane (Ken) Woolsey of Lewiston, ID. Daughter Alece Boyer who resided with her as her primary care giver. Daughter Jennifer (Paul) Laferriere of Lewiston, ID. Grandchildren Derek, Tyler and Kendal Woolsey & Nicole (Scott) O’Brien, as well as Taylor, Cameran, Kayden & Gabrielle Laferriere. She had the joy of having great grandchildren, Brooklyn & Sean O’Brien and Porter Vanlandingham. Her siblings Rae Gessford, Jean Northrop, Ike Cook and numerous nieces and nephews. She was reunited and welcomed home by her son Jeff, her sister Karen (Everette) Cole, her parents Fred & Beth Cook, along with many family and friends. There will be a service in her memory at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1020 South A St, Moses Lake, Wa 98837 on Tuesday, June 28th at 11:00 am with fellowship to follow. Please join us in honoring her with your memories. She loved her flowers, but if you wish to donate in her memory, please donate to People for People of Moses Lake in her honor. She would love to know she was still helping people.
