92, passed away peacefully on Wednesday March 18, 2020 at the James G. Johnston Nursing Home. She was predeceased by her husband of 73 Douglas Hill, Sr.; grandson Jeffrey; sisters Helen and Anna; brother Bud. She is survived by her sons Thomas and Gwen Hill, Doug and Nancy Hill; daughter Sharon and Dwayne Christensen; 17 grandchildren; 37 great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews. Joyce faced many challenges and adversities within her life, but her devotion and faithfulness to the Bible and prayer always persevered. She even learned how to swim at the age of 60! Joyce was a true Godly woman and a prayer warrior, and that devotion has been passed down to many generations. She taught Sunday School at First Baptist Church of Johnson City to the High School girls who loved and admired her for her faithfulness, and was a member of the choir. Her favorite Bible verse was John 3:16 which she recited and sang daily. Joyce is now in heaven with the Lord and rejoicing there. A graveside service will be held at a later date. In Joyce’s memory, donations can be made to the Calvary Community Church, 780 Harry L. Dr, Johnson City, NY 13790 which will go towards the Hunger Drive or Operation Christmas Child.
