Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
She was born March 24, 1943 in Wilmington, NC to the late Duard Council Sloop and Hazel Lorene Freeze Sloop. She graduated from Landis High School, class of ’61, where she was a Letter girl. Joyce primarily worked as a homemaker but through her life she did many different things but her favorite was working in a nursing home as a craft instructor. She truly loved the interaction with the patients and they loved her. She was a very talented artist and in her spare time she enjoyed spending time making her own art & crafts which she sold or gave to others to enjoy. By far her favorite thing to do was to spend time with her family. She was an enthusiastic lover of word games and puzzles and you could often find her reading fantasy and science fiction novels with her beloved dogs curled up by her side.
In addition to her parents, Joyce was preceded in death by her younger sister, Cathy Sloop and her Grandson Issak Wray Solomon who both passed away as infants.
The family will receive friends on Sunday May 1, 2022 from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM at Linn-Honeycutt Funeral Home in China Grove, NC. A Celebration of Life will be held following the visitation at 6:00 PM at the funeral home.
