Shirley “Joyce” Davidson Pooser, 87, finished her race on January 12, 2022 at 11:46 a.m.
Joyce was a woman of many talents and used her gifts & graces serving the Lord by serving others. One way she served was as a volunteer at A Women’s Pregnancy Center. She was a firm believer that no matter the circumstances life is precious.
She loved children and spent many years ministering to kids in her home, taught Good News Bible Clubs, Bible School & Elementary School. She also co-owned a Day Care-Christian School. She loved to teach children to read, knowing that once they could read, they could do anything.
From an early age she loved the elderly. Throughout her life she seemed drawn to them and even in her 70’s she was a caregiver to those in their 80’s and 90’s.
Joyce was an artist. While in Alaska she loved to paint the majestic mountains and scenic landscapes.
For over 65 years, Joyce was a military and pastor’s wife. She was a mom to three, grandmother to six and great grandmother to eight. She was a sister, an aunt, mentor, and friend to many.
