Born in Muskogee, Oklahoma on June 1, 1938, and went home to Jesus after her fight with ALS disease on November 11, 2021.
Joy is predeceased by the love of her life, her husband, Bob. She is survived by her twin daughters, Robin and Roberta Acquistpace; three brothers, Gary (Paula) Myskey, Bob (Tary) Mysey, Darell (Paige) Dikeman; nephew, Robert (Chrysti) Myskey and many other nieces and nephews.
Joy had a long career working for the State Assembly in Sacramento. In 1996 Joy and Bob retired to their home on the lake in Nice, CA. As active members of the Lakeport Elks Club, they spent many years cooking and serving and made many friends sharing cruise vacations.
Joy was especially proud of her church and church family at Grace Evangelical Free Church in Kelseyville. Her Smiling face was seen on many Sunday mornings as she greeted before the service. Her nephew Robert said it best, Joy was her name and Joy was what she brought with her.
“Rest in Peace Beautiful One” you made a difference!
No services are planned at this time, donations to the Lakeport Animal Shelter will be smiled on by Joy and the nine kittens she would feed.
