February 17, 1936 — September 9, 2015

Joyce Workman, age 79 passed away Wednesday, September 9, 2015 at her home surrounded by her family. She was born February 17, 1936 in Freeburn, Kentucky, the daughter of Merdith Layne and Bessie Griffery Layne. The youngest of eleven children, Joyce was the last of her siblings to pass away.

Workman, Sr. who passed away in 1997.

Among survivors are her children, James, Jolana and husband Joseph and Shawn.
Her grandchildren, James Thomas Williamson, Joseph Varney and Shawn Workman. Three great grandchildren, Rory Williamson, Asia Randolph and Joe B. Varney also survive.
