Joyce Elaine Washington


Joyce Elaine Washington was born on December 5, 1941 daughter of the late Eugene and Ruby Washington of Grant Town, WV. She departed this life on July 25, 2019 in New York City.

Joyce attended elementary school at Grays Flat and graduated from Fairview High School in 1959. Shortly after graduation, she left West Virginia to start her adult life in New York City where she remained until her passing.

She was an avid reader, loved to sew, enjoyed researching family history and historical events, traveling, game shows and spending time with family and friends.

She is survived by her four sisters Vera (Arthur) Johnson in Clarksburg, WV; Rosemary Washington in New York City; JoAnn (Melvin) Daniels in Silver Spring, MD; Carolyn (Houston) Richardson in Fairmont, WV; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.

Joyce will be forever loved, remembered, cherished and missed.

The Family appreciates all expressions of sympathy, condolences and prayers. A Celebration of her Life will be held at a later date.
