Joyce the beautiful, born Joyce Alene Byers Johnston May 17, 1934, passed away Wednesday, May 10, 2017, joining her beloved Don; mother, Ocie; sons, Bobby and Andy; and close friend Eric.  She is survived by eldest son, Kevin; daughter-in-law, Tracy; grandchildren, Eric, Corinne and Amber; nieces, Melinda and Cheryl.  Those who knew Joy, loved her wit, conversation, generosity, and kindness.  Joyce’s songwriting career included songs in several Elvis movies, notably “Come on Everybody” in Viva Las Vegas, a Broadway play, and albums.  Joy was a rock for Don AKA “Bob”, supporting him through thick and thin.  They are rejoined. She will be missed greatly by all of us who knew her.  A private memorial will be held at a later date.  Online condolences may be submitted at
