Joyce Edwards Lay, our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend, passed away peacefully and surrounded by her loving family on April 8, 2019.

Joyce was born on January 27, 1944, to Homer Edwards and Naomi Funk in Ferron, Utah. She had four brothers; Clark, Clyde, LeRoy, and Ralph Edwards and one sister, Afton Pettey. She married Ronald Lay in the Manti Temple on September 6, 1964, but later divorced. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had devoted and caring ministering individuals throughout her life that she loved dearly.

Joyce attended Ferron Elementary, Emery Jr. High, and graduated from Emery High School. She attended Snow College for two years. She worked at Harmon’s Grocery Store for many years and at UTA as a bus driver for over 20 years. She had her LPI license and taught many future bus drivers. She was a favorite! Her students loved her and enjoyed her jokes and wonderful personality.
She was an amazing mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She had a contagious laugh and she loved spending time with family. She was very generous and offered all she had to others. She was a very loving, thoughtful and fun spirited person. She had the best sense of humor and you could always count on having a good time when you were with her. Joyce was an avid reader and she enjoyed putting puzzles together and working on crosswords puzzles. Her family and friends will miss her greatly!

Joyce is survived by her three sons; Shawn Lay, Darin (Lori) Lay, and Mitchell (Kami) Lay; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; one sister-in-law, Marsha Edwards; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, mother, brothers and sister.
