In Memory Of
CLARKE - Joyce Terese, passed away peacefully on March 13, 2022. Beloved wife to the late James F. Clarke. She was the devoted mother of Anne (Andrew) Catherine, James (Michiko) and Patricia (Brian). Fondly remembered by her grandchildren, Tim, Steve, Teddy, Masato, Kazuma and Mina.
Joyce was born, raised, and married in Brooklyn, NY. She lived there until moving to Garden City, NY where she was a longtime resident.
She was a selfless, generous person who dedicated her life to serving and helping others in her family and community. She was a devoted member of St. Anne’s Parish and actively engaged in volunteer activities in support of the parish and the elementary school. In addition, she was also a committed volunteer at the INN, Interfaith Nutrition Network, in Hempstead NY.
Joyce was an avowed dachshund lover and often seen out for a walk with one of her beloved dogs. She was an avid golfer and loved spending time on the golf course where she made many wonderful, enduring friendships. She shared her subtle, sense of humor with everyone she met throughout her life. Even during her final days, she was able to bring a little levity to her hospital room and joke with her caregivers. But above everything else she truly loved spending time with her family and grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the INN, The Interfaith Nutrition Network.
