Joyce N. White, age 66 of White Pine, originally of Indiana, went home to be with her savior on August 24, 2021, surrounded by her loved ones. She was a compassionate, strong Christian lady with a servant?s heart. Joyce loved everyone unconditionally and was always ready to help others in their time of need. She was a member of Leadvale Baptist Church. Joyce retired from Jefferson Memorial Hospital after 33 years of devoted service as a Registered Nurse and advocate for her patients. Camping, traveling and spending time with family and friends were some of the things she enjoyed most. However, being a grandma was by far her favorite thing, while she had her own grandchildren, she adopted many as her own over the years. Joyce had a special way of welcoming everyone in for a meal and to become part of her family. She is preceded in death by her husband of 41 years, Robert W. White, father, Russell Case, stepfather, Felix Belcher and daughter, JoEllen White.
