James Joyce was born on May 24th, 1944 and adopted and raised in Kansas City, Missouri by Lucy Maise. Jim, as most people called him, was survived by his loving wife of 21 years, Margaret Joyce, and her family; (5) children, (19) grandchildren, (14) great-grandchildren, as well as his own daughter (Brenda Kaye Joyce). Jim and Margy enjoyed traveling together and spending time with family. They lived together in Salt Lake City, Utah; Tucson, Arizona; and most recently, Mesquite, Nevada. Jim passed away on November 2nd, 2019, peacefully in the care of his wife and a good friend; playing cards, laughing, and sharing his humor until the final moments of his life. There will be no services to attend. Loved ones are welcome to contact Margy by telephone if you have her information. We invite all to leave messages via Facebook or in their Guest Book at www.moapavalleymortuary.com, and any condolences will be forwarded to Margy and her family.
