Obituary for Joyce Carolyn Thomas

Joyce Carolyn Thomas, born on February 27, 1942, has gone to be with her lord and savior on June 26, 2017. Joyce is survived by her three children, William R. Thomas, Jr and wife Carol; Karla K. Thomas; David A. Thomas and wife Shea; five grandchildren, Joseph Dauksys and wife April; Sylvie Doherty and husband Brett; Troy Dauksys; Lauren Till and husband Tyler and Sophie Lovell and husband Shawn; six great-grandchildren, Kyleigh, Hayden, Lydia, Everett, Izzie and William (Liam) and her brother, William Daniel and wife Norma. Joyce was married to William R. Thomas on June 03, 1961, after which they began a wonderful life’s journey raising their family, creating a circle of life-long friendships, travelling abroad and becoming a witness by example of their faith in Jesus Christ. Joyce lost her husband on January 1, 2015, shortly after which she began her third battle with Stage 4 cancer in the past 45 years. When Joyce was given 6 months to live in 1972, she immediately claimed her healing and went on, not only to be a cancer survivor, but to be a wonderful mother, a competitive athlete, a successful business owner and a powerful warrior for God. Her first hole in one at the age of 63, followed by her second hole in one at age 64 was merely a result of her determination to do the best she can on the golf course. When her determination to fight her cancer ended at age 75, it was indeed a powerful testimony that touched the lives of everyone that came to know her. Joyce passed peacefully and without pain. You are deeply loved and will be missed by all. We are certain that you are now rejoicing under The Tree by The River with your husband and family that have gone before you. A Memorial Service will be held 11AM Saturday July 1, 2017 at The Marietta First Church of the Nazarene, 4341 Dallas Hwy. Marietta, GA 30064. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The American Cancer Society, 3380 Chastain Meadows Pkwy NW, Suite 200, Kennesaw, GA 31044 or to The Marietta First Church of the Nazarene. The family will receive friends Friday, June 30 from 7 PM to 9 PM at Carmichael Funeral Home, 1130 Whitlock Ave NW, Marietta, GA 30064. 770-424-4924. www.carmichaelcares
