Joyce (Miller) Williams of Clive, Iowa, died on January 11, 2022. Joyce was born on October 2, 1952 to Kenneth and Arlene Miller of Carlisle, Iowa.

Joyce encapsulated beauty inside and out. She was a talented musician and artist, who always showed kindness and grace to all.

Upon graduation from the University of Iowa, Joyce began a career in Dairy Science. Joyce and her husband, Roger Williams, ultimately moved to Virginia where Jennifer was born in 1981. Joyce found great joy in motherhood and described Jenny, who passed away in 1992, as the light of her life.

During her time in Virginia, her love of the outdoors expanded to hiking, biking, gardening, and kayaking. She was always wanting to be outside enjoying God’s beauty. As a former study abroad student, Joyce’s love of travel lasted throughout her lifetime. After 20 years in Virginia, Joyce returned to Iowa to be closer to her family.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Jennifer Williams; and parents, Kenneth and Arlene Miller.

Joyce is survived by her siblings, Jim (Julia) Miller, Judith (Chuck) Brown, and Jerilynn (Craig) Mickelson, as well as Carl Shawver.

The family would like to thank the Carlisle High School Class of ’71 for their friendship and unending loyalty and to Woodlands Silvercrest Staff for their dedication and care.

Services and details for the Joyce M. Williams Memorial are pending.
