JOYCE HALL KELLISON, 80, of Chesterfield Virginia, known to many as simply “Mama”; passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 17, 2021, surrounded by the ones she loved the most.
Joyce was preceded in death by her grandson, William Lee Maynard III. She is survived by her dedicated husband of 53 years, Donald; her son, William (Billy Ray) Maynard Jr. (Mary); her three daughters, Cathy New (Mike), Susan Seay (Robbie), Lisa Edwards-Allen (Johnny); her dedicated grandchildren, Tara Garner (Dennis), and Michael; as well as 8 additional beloved grandchildren, 11 amazing great-grandchildren; two sisters, Lucille Jones and Carol Earley and one brother, William (Billy) Hall, along with a host of nieces and nephews.
Joyce was a strong, determined, and fiercely independent woman. Joyce loved her family with all of heart and soul. She was happiest when in their presence. She always lived her life by “The Golden Rule”, and she never left a room without saying, “I Love You!”.
Although Joyce will be greatly missed, her loving spirit will continue to live on through her family and friends, and the many priceless life lessons that she has surely left behind.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations to the American Cancer Society be made in her honor.
