She was born on November 11, 1944, to George and Norma Carlson.
She was the third of five children.  Her siblings are: Ronnie (Julie) Carlson, Phyllis (Larry) Cobble, both deceased, and little sister, Marlene Carlson.
At the sweet age of 16, she met and later married the love of her life, Dallas Godbey.  They had many happy years together.  They shared a love of horses, motorcycles, and classic cars.  Joyce was a good cook, making from scratch noodles and pies.  Homemade jelly was her specialty.  She was a loving and caring wife and mother.  After 2 years of marriage, along came Julie Ann.
In her working career, she followed the footsteps of her mother.  She was a cook at Valley Preschool, Clinton Nursing Home, and Rockville Nursing Home.

She loved the Lord and went to Trinity Church for many years.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Julie and Mike (Pete) Davis; granddaughter, Rachel Davis; and grandson, Dallas Davis.
She will be terribly missed.

I’m 39 years old and I still remember Miss Joyce from Valley Daycare when I was little. My brother and I still remember her genuine kindness and her edible peanut butter play doh. She was a kind lady who left a lasting impression on us. You can’t say that about too many people. So very sorry for your loss. May she Rest In Peace.
