Joyce Faye (Brooks) Royce, 90, Anderson, MO, passed away November 18, 2020 at the McDonald County Living Center in Anderson, Mo following a short illness.

Joyce was born October 1,1930 in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma. Joyce was the 6th child of Alex Patrick Brooks and Ida Belle (Parker) Brooks.

Joyce graduated from Anderson High School in 1948 and took her nurses training at St Johns in Joplin, MO. On August 12, 1951 Joyce married Dean Royce. Together Dean and Joyce pastored churches in Missouri and Texas for 42 years. Joyce worked in children and youth ministries. She also taught Sunday School teachers training workshops. She served as camp nurse at Wildwood Youth Camp in Bentonville, AR and Tri-State Youth Camp in Wyandotte, OK for many years. Joyce was a remarkable storyteller, who would leave you wanting more. Joyce was well-known in the area for her pie making and flower arrangements. Joyce was quite a prankster and her quick witt will be remembered by all who knew her.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Dean Royce; one grandson, Seth Alex Royce and six siblings.

Joyce is survived by her son, Dan Royce and wife Gay of Anderson, MO; her daughter, Cynthia Royce of Colorado Springs, CO; one sister, Beradine Bachelor of Torrance, California; Seven Grandchildren; Justin Hicks and wife Brandi of Columbia, MO; Joel Hicks of Colorado Springs, CO; Jennifer Nunley and husband Jake of Pea Ridge, AR; Trevor Royce and wife Krystal of Granada, Spain; 13 great grandchildren and many other family members and friends.

The celebration of Joyce’s life will be December 5, 2020 at 2:00 at the Full Gospel Church in Southwest City, MO, with Trevor Royce, Derald Compton and Richard Hart officiating.

Arrangements under the personal direction of Campbell-Biddlecome Funeral Home, Seneca, MO.
