She was born on August 19, 1947 in West Virginia, a daughter of Hershel Edwards of Laurel and the late Helen Edwards.

Joyce was never afraid of hard work and worked many jobs to support her family and spoil her grandson and great- grandchildren.  She was employed by the Manor House in Seaford and Pizza King in Laurel for many years.  She will always be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend.

She is survived by her son, Curtis Rodenizer (Kristine) of Great Mills, MD; grandson, Aaron Rodenizer (Chelsea) of Leonardtown, MD; great-grandchildren, Layne and Grey; sisters, Judy Cropper (George) of Delmar, and Brenda Johnson (Jimmy) of Delmar; an aunt, Delma Diehl of Seaford; a nephew who was like a son to her, Daniel Smith; and several nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank special friends, June Alexander, Pam Crockett, and Karen Shirey for the love and support they gave to Joyce during her times of treatments and illness.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
