Joyce Miller

October 8, 1952 — May 14, 2023

Joyce Miller, 70 of Girard, passed away Sunday morning at her residence. Joyce, born October 8, 1952 in Youngstown, was welcomed into heaven to reunite with her beloved parents, Lynn and Pearl (Sayers) Miller, Sr. and many other members of her family tree of whom she loved telling stories about.


Joyce, a lifelong area resident, graduated from Girard High School and attended Youngstown State University. Joyce loved her Girard First United Methodist Church family almost as much as her actual family. She leaves behind many happy memories there including singing in the choir, volunteering, helping organize Habitat for Humanity mission trips to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, and, most importantly, smiling and laughing.



Joyce was a friend to all, always ready to listen, laugh, tell a joke, and share a story. Her joy radiated through her many hobbies and talents including baking, sewing, quilting, crocheting, knitting, and singing, which she did as a member of the Sweet Adelines. Many friends and family have beautiful handmade gifts to cherish and remember her by.



She leaves her brother, Lynn Miller, Jr. of McDonald and a nephew, Jake (April) Miller and niece, Kate Miller. She also leaves a great niece, Parker, and great nephews, Cohen and Beckett. Joyce was so proud of all of her family members.



In one of many cherished writings, Joyce said “Church is the best part of my week. Just stepping in the door seems to settle my spirit. A smile comes on my face and the outside doesn’t matter anymore. A feeling of coming home. I’ll be there. Look for the one with the smile on her face.”



Friends may call on Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at Lane Funeral Home, 1350 N. Canfield-Niles Rd., Mineral Ridge and 10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. Friday at Girard First United Methodist Church, 22 N. Market Street, Girard, followed by a funeral service at 11:00 a.m. and a luncheon thereafter.
