Her Story, Joyce Ann Perkins Dolphus
Our mother lost her battle to breast cancer July 16, 2018. She was not only our mother but a grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and a friend to many; a person that touched many lives. She was full of life and the life of the party, it was never a dull moment around her and you could count on some laughter in her presence. Her smile could light up a room and her laughter was contagious, and she is missed dearly by many. Momma was the matriarch of our family that held us together through good and bad times. She demonstrated what hard work was throughout our lives and the importance of family, among many other things. She was so strong and I’m sure we all thought she would beat this disease and we would celebrate her victory by ringing the cancer bell and closing this difficult chapter in our lives. We did not get to celebrate that victory with her but through this organization we hope to celebrate her by giving back and helping others. We celebrate you momma and hope we are making you proud.
