Joyce Thompson Herron, 77, passed away in her residence, surrounded by her family, on Sunday, March 14, 2021 after an extended illness.
Born in New Brighton on May 17, 1943, Joyce was the daughter of the late William and Jean Tinsmen Thompson. Her husband of 53 years, Clifford L. Herron, preceded her in death just two short weeks ago on March 1, 2021. Joyce was a member of Concord United Methodist Church. She and Cliff enjoyed traveling together and camping all over the country. Joyce really enjoyed gardening, especially making sure all the weeds were picked. When Joyce retired as the office manager from Beaver Internal Medicine, her sole intention was to help raise her five granddaughters. It turned out to be her most fulfilling job ever.
Joyce is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Stefanie Herron Pyle and Timothy Lee Pyle of Chippewa, her son, Brent Herron and his girlfriend, Jody Papageorge of West Mayfield, her five granddaughters, Sydney Margaret, Chloe Marie, Makayla Elizabeth, Emma Jean and Haylee Ann, her brother, Donald (Joann) Thompson of Spokane, WA, her sister-in-law, Rosemary Jagoditch of New Brighton, several nieces who loved her dearly and her dog, Bella.
In addition to her parents and her husband, Joyce was preceded in death by her brother and sister-in-law, William and Jean Thompson.
Friends will be received on Wednesday, March 17th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Joseph A. Tomon, Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, 97 Grim Avenue, Ellport.
