It is with great sadness that we announce that on the night of January 22, 2022 Joy Ward passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home surrounded by her family; she was 40 years old. She will be missed as a loving wife, committed mother, caring daughter and sister, and loyal friend.
Joy is survived by her devoted husband, Rich, her adoring daughters, Kamryn and Kelsey, her bonus daughter, Micayla, her mom and dad, Betty and Bill and sister, April.
Joy was passionate about life and everything in it. She loved sunflowers, shopping, and dancing with the girls when making dinner, but above all she cherished her family and friends. Her bubbly personality came through in everything she did. She truly lived each day to fullest, with fun, laughter, and goofy antics. She valued her relationships and would light up the room with her presence. Her strength was an inspiration to us all, and she was a true fighter and warrior. She gave her all against the battle with her cancer, and she never once gave up fighting. The world will be a duller place without her addicting smile, her witty comments and her giving nature. She made a great impact on everyone she met. She will live forever in our hearts.
In lieu of flowers the family is asking that you please considering making a donation to Lesliesweek.org, an organization close to Joy’s heart.
