Joyce (Massey), Smith, Huston, Murphy, age 72 of Georgewest/Seguin area, passed away peacefully on Wednesday the 14th of June 2017 at Warms Springs Rehabilitation Center.

Joyce was born May 12, 1945 in Corpus Christi to her parents Elmer and Sue Elizabeth (Reither) Massey.

Joyce is preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Sue Elizabeth Massey, and siblings; sister, Barbara Springs, brothers, Jimmy Massey, David Massey and Elmer Lyle “Red” Massey; grandchildren, Justin Foley and Terri Clark.

Joyce is survived by her children; daughters, Vonnie Smith, Joann Smith, and Joyce Smith; sons, Wayne Hutson and spouse Judy Hutson, and Wade Hutson and spouse Simone Huston; grandchildren, Willie Clark, Billie Clark, James Foley, Anthony Hodges, Ashley Ferris, Heather Landers, and Sophia Hutson; great grandchildren, Mikalah, Vyla, and Vaelyn Clark, Logan Thomas, Lorelai Ferris, and Sebastian Pope; and siblings, Janet Leonard, Carolynn Phillips, Loyce Allen, Ann Jordan, Larry Massey, and Linda Lazo.

Visiting and spending time with her family brought her happiness and joy. Joyce, and her twin sister, Loyce Allen were inseparable, the love these sisters had for each other was incomprehensible. Several times during the day they would spend hours talking to each other and occasionally visiting each other at the Nueces River. The river was her favorite place to visit, it was a place where she could relax and have some time to herself. She also enjoyed watching and feeding the birds and the feral cats while she was there. Joyce has many loves in her life, love for family, fishing, watching church sermons, and westerns, especially if John Wayne was in them, chihuahuas, and the color of yellow. She enjoyed dancing the night away, playing card games and dominos with her family, shooting a game of pool, and being outdoors. Joyce was women of faith, of love, and a contributor, she will be missed by all that loved her.

Visitation will be held at Palmer Mortuary Chapel, Saturday, June 24, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. A “Home Going Service” will begin promptly at 11:00 a.m. She will be laid to rest at the Barton Cemetery, Buda TX. Officiating all services will be, Reverend Wayne Hutson.
