Joyce Warner was reunited with her beloved Howard on February 12, 2024, in Zephyrhills, Florida.

Joyce was incredibly passionate about education and returned to school to earn her nursing degree in which she earned straight A’s. Joyce was a nurse for much of her adult life, working for IU Health Methodist Hospital in the Labor and Delivery Unit for over 15 years. 

Howard was a 33-year Air Force Veteran who became an OTR driver for over 35 years, retiring from Gainey Transportation of Indiana. He had over 2.5 million accident-free miles and earned 20 safe driving awards for his diligent driving.

Both were animal lovers and had many beloved pets, including a raccoon named Bandit. 

More than anything, Joyce was the glue that kept the family together. She was always supportive of her children and Howard, working meticulously to offer opportunities for her loved ones to live joyous lives. She and Howard had found the kind of love you hope everyone finds in their lives.

Joyce is survived by her only sibling, Clayton Hannan of Penn Yan, New York. Wife Judy and their three children as well as grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Warner Jr., Terry William Warner (Rachel), Rick Lee Warner, Duane Alan Warner (Darlene), Michael John Warner; 14 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren; Howard's sister Ruby Duncan and many nieces, nephews; great-nieces and great-nephews.
