DANVILLE - Joyce Faulkner-Lewis, 95, of Danville, peacefully passed away at her home at 7:10 p.m. Sunday, September 1, 2019, surrounded by family and loved ones.
Joyce was born July 9, 1924, to John and Florence Ulmer of Easton, Pennsylvania.
For 35 years Joyce and her late husband, Robert G. Faulkner, ran and operated the Danville Dairy Queens on East Main and West Fairchild Streets.
In 1979, Joyce married William B. Lewis of Danville, who preceded her in death after 36 years of marriage. She was recently preceded in death by the passing of her granddaughter, Nicole L. Faulkner, who died August 14, 2019.
Joyce is survived by two children, Cheryl Bolser-Lyons (Fred) of Tilton, and Mark S. Faulkner (Brenda) of Danville; five grandchildren, Mark C. Bolser (Bridgette VanEtta), Robert S. Faulkner, Brandon Faulkner, Ashley Faulkner and Alexander Faulkner; five great-grandchildren, Kaelin Sager, Owen Bolser, Kristopher Bolser, Madelyn Bolser and Scott Faulkner.
Joyce was a member of Central Christian Church. She was president of Vermilion Hills Country Club, president of a Delta Theta Tau Sorority, a member of the Danville Professional Womens Club, and drove for the Red Cross for 10 years.
Joyce also loved taking care of her home, yard and flower gardens. She was an animal lover who always enjoyed her pet cat Frosty and her parakeet Pudgy, who were at her side in the end.
Joyce enjoyed spending time with her family and always enjoyed hosting the family on Christmas day with a special formal dinner on Christmas evening.
Joyce had a wide circle of friends, most of whom preceded her in death. She was the closest of friends to Dick and Barbra Elliot, who she missed so dearly after their deaths.
Special thanks to Carle Home Hospice Care and to Bridgette VanEtta who took such good care of Joyce during her final days.
