Marylin Joyce Miller was born January 1, 1928, the daughter of Ralph E. and Cora A. Lower Miller.

Joyce is survived by her children: Connie (Wayne) Turner, Pennie Daly, Don L.

She was preceded in death by five siblings; four children: Meredith Fox, Miller “Buddy” Fox, James Fox, and David Fox; one grandson, Ronnie Coker, and one great-grandson, Jacob Lee.

Joyce had worked at Big Lots in Harrison, Ohio, and for many years in the hotel/motel industry where she wore many hats from management to line-level roles.

She was a woman of many talents that included dancing, singing, playing the piano and drums, roller skating, and especially cooking. Her family fondly remembers her as the “best cook” whose meals were banquets and enjoyed watching her bake bread and rolls. She was greatly loved and will be greatly missed.

The family especially thanks Heather, Jessica, and Kevin of Carle Hospice for their care and compassion.

Memorials may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Final arrangements are entrusted with Quiram-Peasley Funeral Home of Atlanta.
