Winslow, ME- Joyce Hope Starbuck, 84, passed away October 22, 2015 with her girls by her side. She will be deeply missed by her grateful and admiring family. She was the strength and backbone to her loved ones. She lived on Roy Street for 50 years raising her five daughters. \r\n\r\nShe attended Waterville, ME schools and retired from the Hathaway shirt factory of 20 years. Joyce was also a long standing member of the Winslow VFW Auxiliary Post.\r\n\r\nJoyce was a great cook and always enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate a good meal with family and friends. It was known around the neighborhood “ let’s go to Ma Star’s” for dinner. She loved to knit and crochet, making hats, mittens, scarves, and afghans to prepare for the winter months. \r\n\r\nJoyce was known for her charming wit and old fashion sayings. She enjoyed music and dancing as her favorite song was “You Are My Sunshine.” She loved to have a good time. As she suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for most of her life, she was forced to give up some of the activities she so enjoyed. But she always told us to keep on dancing as long as you can.\r\n\r\nJoyce is predeceased by her parents Alverna Nason and Eugene Jewell; and her sister Dorothy Jewell. \r\n\r\nShe is survived by her brother Alfred Jewell; her five daughters Linda Starbuck, Cynthia Stewart Horner, Cheryl Robert Ashe, Dorene Martin Haskell, and Tammy Nathan Holmes; eleven grandchildren Michelle, Bethany, Heather, Travis, Tara, Cody, Hannah, Miriah, Orlando, Jordon, and Sophia.
