Avis Steele Joy, 65, of 216 Spring St., DuBoistown, Pa., died Monday, Feb. 13, 2012, at home.
She was born on March 31, 1946, the daughter of George E. and Anne Louise Steele Joy.
She is survived by her son, Jamie H. Joy and his wife, Rachael Lepley Joy; grandchildren, Caleb, Noah and Hannah Joy; nephews, Chris Barnett and Steve Dellinger, and their families; and nieces, Penny Fillman and Pam Werner and their families.
Avis loved all things. She was a mother, grandmother and a friend to all who knew her. She loved cross-stitching, photography, researching her lineage and creating memories. But most of all, she loved her family. While Avis will be greatly missed, she would prefer, instead of sadness, that we rejoice in the joy she shared and pass that love on to others.
She was preceded in death by her parents and sisters, Margie Bower and Tisha Dellinger.
Funeral services will be held at the Crouse Funeral Home, 133 E. Third St., Williamsport, on Friday morning at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Lycoming County Unit of the American Cancer Society, 1948 E. Third St., Williamsport, PA 17701.
