Joyce Williams Patterson, 86, went to be with the Lord on Friday, January 28, 2022. Joyce was born in Prentiss County, MS on March 7, 1935. She married Junior Willams in December of 1952 and after following Junior during his time in the Army, they moved to Kenosha, WI and later to Zion, IL where they made their life for many years. Joyce was a cosmetologist for 25 years, then worked for North Shore Sanitary District where she retired. She was a dedicated care giver; Joyce cared for Junior following a stroke for several years before his passing. Being a widow at 46, she never dreamed she would have a second chance at happiness. In 1990 she married Paul ‘Pat’ Patterson. Sadly in 2000 Pat passed away. Joyce loved her flowers, camping and cooking. She was always happy to cook for friends and family. She was a member of the Garden Club and Red Hat Society.
