Joyce was born October 27, 1932 at Stratford to the late Mr. Charley Cleveland "C.C." Shirley and Mrs. Loretta Verlene (Sartors) Shirley. She departed this life Tuesday morning, Sept. 11, 2018 at her home in Fox.
Joyce was a resident of Fox most all of her years. She graduated from Fox High School in 1951 and soon after married Mr. Larry B. Fore. They were united in marriage on June 15, 1951 at Wichita Falls, TX. Together they shared 67 amazing years together always residing at Fox.

Joyce always enjoyed a house full of family and friends whom she overly took pleasure in cooking some of her famous chocolate and pecan pies for. She enjoyed all of her children's baseball team ganging up at the house before each ballgame where she often gave them flat top and burr haircuts.
Joyce was a great seamstress often sewing her children’s clothes and making many wonderful quilts. She also loved to sew for her grandchildren and always enjoyed fixing them something to eat. She and Larry most recently had been attending the Milo Baptist Church but still held their membership for 62 years at the Fox Baptist Church.

She is preceded by her parents, C.C. and Loretta Shirley; brother, Eugene Shirley; sisters, Barbara Carroll and most recently Catherine Gordon; brother in law, Dillon Carroll; nephew, Dustin Tra Moore; niece, Stephanie (Shirley) Zellers, and daughter in law, Carla Renee (Battles) Fore.
