On December 27, 2011, she married her devoted husband, Gary Glen Stayton. Together they enjoyed supporting their local animal shelter and spoiling their three blue heeler rescues. Joyce was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She was an incredibly selfless person, living very simply and always putting others’ needs before her own. She was dedicated to reading God’s Word, often texting her children inspirational Bible verses. She had a love of animals, and she enjoyed watching the hummingbirds around her many birdfeeders. She loved the color blue and relished the arrival of Texas bluebonnets in the spring. She was also a member of the Guns and Glitz Women’s Shooting League. She was preceded in death by her father, Paul J. Coleman, and her brother, Dan Coleman. She is survived by her husband, Gary Glen Stayton; son Steven (Theresa) Gill; daughter Marlana (Robert) Magill; son, Jesse Gill; and her grandchildren, Quintin Gill, Morgan Magill, and Rory Magill.
