Joylyn enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She was a talented seamstress, sewing formal dresses, cheerleading uniforms and bridesmaid dresses for her daughters and their friends. She quilted baby and graduation memory blankets for her grandkids as well as missionary work with her church quilting group. She also volunteered at the Lavaca Assistance Ministry Body (the LAMB) and the Hallettsville Rehabilitation Center. She will always be remembered for her dedicated faith in our Lord, devotion to family, and welcoming heart to all.
