It is with deep sorrow and much love that our family announces the passing of Charlotte Sue Joyce, age 85, of Blacksburg, VA died Sunday, January 10, 2021 at her home surrounded by the love of her family. She was born in Murray, Kentucky on October 11,1935.

She will be remembered by everyone and all of those that grew to know her over the years. She will always remain in our hearts as the “queen of sass.” She was a mother to some, a safe place to others, but was always someone you know you could come to and chat with about anything on your mind. She was and always will be a Virginia Tech fan who loved nothing more than celebrating and entertaining with those around her.

She is preceded in death by her parents: Beuton Vance and Buell Donelson, her husband: Michael B. Joyce and her daughter: Carol Anne Mehmood.

She is survived by her daughters: Donna Hall (Dan), of Virginia Beach, Brenda Holdaway of Blacksburg and Susan Tafesse of Christiansburg. Her sisters: Carlotta Clark (Gerry) of Pearisburg, VA and Patty Campbell (Larry) of Somerset, KY. Her brother: Sam Underwood (Susan) of Murray, KY. As well as her eight grandchildren: Isha, Heem, Nicole, Kelly, Victoria, Elias, Michael and Maleah.

The family would like to thank Good Samaritan for the compassionate and loving care they provided Charlotte, as well as the love and support, shown to the family.

A grave side ceremony will be held at the Westview Cemetery on Friday, January 15, 2021 at 2pm. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. The family asks that in lieu of flowers you donate to Good Samaritan Hospice or the Parkinson’s Foundation.
