Joy was a true blessing to her family and friends. She always made me SMILE. I love and miss all of you. LeAnne Teshon
I do love Joy as she took me in at the Colfax Historical Society and taught me the early days all about the building and its functions. All the people their made me feel welcome. But Joy took my calls, answered my questions and still took care of her busy family life. I will miss her kindness and it will be God's good fortune. Love to the family, take care.
Thoughts and prayers for the Conley family. Joy was much like her name and shared this joy with all.pat Jesse
