Pittsfield - Joyce Barbara Salley went to be with the Lord on June 13, 2018, after a brief period of ill health.
Joyce was born August 14, 1930, in St. Albans, Maine, the daughter of Harold and Harriet (Lowell) Frost. She attended school in St. Albans and Hartland. She married Howard W. Salley on November 16, 1947.
Joyce was a hard worker, running Linda's Dairy Bar and sharing her love of making and eating ice cream. She was a strong woman of faith and was active in her church community at the Calvary Baptist Church in Pittsfield. She was a lifelong and active member of the Chatterbox Club. Joyce enjoyed playing cards and Scrabble. She liked taking road trips with her fun and spunky friends who blessed her life even until the day she passed.
Joyce always was thoughtful in cards and notes to her friends and family. She was a caring, generous and a wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother to her family. She looked forward to holidays together and the annual summer gatherings, often when her birthday was celebrated with family. She lived a full and beautiful life on her own terms for 87 years.
