Joyce Farmer

Joyce Farmer, a beloved homemaker, passed away peacefully on October 2, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on September 24, 1931, in Halifax County, VA to the late Filmore Moorefield and the late Elsie Snead Moorefield. She was married to the late Raymond T. Farmer.

A woman of faith, Joyce found solace within the pages of her Bible and she loved spending time outdoors and enjoying nature's beauty.  Joyce's memory will forever live on in the hearts of all those who were fortunate enough to know her. Her kindness, warmth, and unwavering love for her family have left an indelible mark on everyone she touched. She brought joy and comfort into the lives of so many, and her absence will be deeply felt.

Joyce is survived by her daughter Joy Saunders (Jimmy) of Java. Four Grandchildren; Jaime Saunders, Justin Saunders (Rebecca), Jane Martin (Scott), and Jessica Strickland (Travis), ten great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren - a testament to the abundant life she led.

Joyce also leaves behind two sisters: Ida Wilmouth of Scottsburg and Betty Cooper of Rocky Mount, VA. Additionally, she is survived by one brother, Charles Moorefield (Barbara) of Ringgold.
