Obituary: Scarborough, Joyce Elaine

Age 81

Scarborough, Joyce Elaine

December 15, 1934 - February 26, 2016

Multitalented, witty, loving - 81-year-old Joyce was a beloved wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, and great-grandmother extraordinaire.

Joyce devoted herself deeply to her family, and still found time to pursue her many creative hobbies.

She was likely found outside diligently keeping her impeccable garden, enjoying time in her studio producing amazing artwork, cooking a delicious meal, or crafting something special for a loved one.

She was a voracious reader all throughout her life.

Joyce was married to Charles Sr. for 62 years.

They raised four children together - Charlie, Jeanne (Peter Sciuto Jr.), Bruce, and Jonathan (Rita Roti).

She cherished her time with her grandchildren - Katie, Amy (Adam Hancock), Peter III, and Holly Sciuto, and Noelle (Johnny Ennis) and Charlie Scarborough.

Her five great-grandchildren also filled her with immense joy.

Her three sisters and two of her sons, Charlie and Bruce, preceded her in death.

All who knew her will miss her caring nature and vibrant spirit.

We all love and miss you already Joycie, Mom, Aunt Joyce, Granny, Great-Granny!

You are forever in our hearts!
