(April 30, 1934 - Jan. 15, 2018)

Joyce Coffey, 83, went to be with her husband Scott and her Lord on Jan. 15, 2018.

Services will be held at First United Methodist Church in Powell on Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2018, at 11 a.m. Joyce had requested that contributions to a local charity be made in lieu of flowers.

Joyce was born on April 30, 1934, in Hickory Ridge, Arkansas, to E.J. Holleman and Vivian Burton Holleman. She married C.H. (Scott) Coffey on June 30, 1960. The couple relocated to Cowley shortly thereafter.

After one year in Cowley, the couple moved to Powell, where they raised their four children.

Joyce was an active member of the community. She was a member of The League of Women Voters, Eastern Star, and Daughters of the Nile. Joyce also enjoyed being a member of The Red Hat Ladies group.

She drove beet truck for Northrup farms, worked for a time at the Powell Bakery and retired from the school district after years as a bus driver. She loved that job.

Joyce was a longtime member and later a minister for the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (RLDS). When, due to lack of members, the church closed its doors, she became a member of the Powell Methodist Church.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Scott, her sister Lee McCarthy and her granddaughter Karie Neveau.

Joyce is survived by her four children, Brenda (Jay) Kaufman of Denver, Colorado, Keith (Renee) Coffey of Wynne, Arkansas, Craig (Terry) Coffey of Bradenton, Florida and Scott Coffey of Powell; eight grandchildren: Corey (Karla) Hill, Terra (Chris) Tominelli, Brandy Coffey, Dayton Coffey, Levi Coffey, Chelsea (A.J.) Fry, Casey Coffey and Travis Coffey; eight great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren and one nephew, Chase McCarthy.

    Joyce will surely be missed by all that knew her. Joyce has left a void in our hearts that no one can fill but I rejoice in knowing our Lord has received her with open arms.
    To the family, I know that there is little I can say to console you but please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and yours at this tragic time.
    With much love,
