Joyce Ann Tatum

Joyce Ann Tatum, 67, made her transition to be with The
Lord, in her home surrounded by loved ones on Saturday, October
3, 2020.

She was a loving and attentive daughter, mother, ama, gram, and
sweetie. She humbly spoiled her family with the gift of unconditional
love. Joyce enjoyed reading her Bible, cooking for her family, and
shopping. Her family describes her as…

     An Angel Among Us
Nothing less than a manifestation of all that God made
beautiful. The personification of love and the stories we could share
– anyone else might call fictional because, well who would believe
we saw an angel with our own eyes, or touched her by our own
hands, or believe we had an angel among us.

We’ve always been told they lived in the sky, but God gave us one
of our own. Her heart sculpted out of the purest of love and
understanding; a graceful appearance, and presence demanding.
However, from God we come, and to him we must return so, it’s only
right he called his angel back – a reality that burned. We can only
smile because it is not (only) us who took the loss.
We feel for those who never got to be graced with her smile, or
embraced by her charm, or never held in her arms, but we did! So
(for that) we rejoice and give praise, and say thank you Lord for
sending your Angel our way.

Joyce is preceded in death by her sisters, Mary “Mae Mae”
Yates and Dawn Jackson.

She leaves to cherish her memories, life partner of 16 years,
Darryl Williams; son, Cameron Tatum; daughter, Michelle Tatum and
Derrick Ross, of Rochester, PA; granddaughters, Syra, Daysha,
Dymond, Sarasia and Katherine; grandsons, Amir and Amar'ee;
great grandson, Rico; mother, Mary Jackson; brothers, Julian and
Peter Jackson; sisters, Deborah Brown, Vivian Ricks, Iris, Christine,
and Nadine Jackson, and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews,
cousins, and friends.
Due to COVID 19 restrictions MASKS are required. The viewing will
be on Saturday, October 10, 2020 from 10am – 12noon followed by
