Joyce Ann Lauby passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving husband, John, and her devoted sisters, Susan and Elizabeth. Her strength, determination and will to live surpassed all medical and family understanding and is a testament to her strength of character and love of life.
Born September 16, 1945.
Proceeded in death by her beloved mother, Ruby Clark Dove, and her grandmother, Faye Lewis Murphy, and other family members of the WWII generation.
Married June 11, 1967.
Graduated from Women’s College of Greensboro in 1968.
A fiercely strong and independent woman, she was committed to the success of her family. She shared her love of books and learning with friends and family of all ages. She was a trainer and breeder as well as a lover of all animals, including horses, dogs, chickens.
Tough on the outside, but with a soft heart, she was fiercely devoted to her family and their heritage, and a committed partner to Doctor Lauby in his successful life choices and business.
Survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Doctor John Allen Lauby, son John Allen Lauby, Jr. and his wife, Jennifer, and loving sisters Susan Clark Nickell and Elizabeth Artemis Clark and their extended families.
As her son, John Allen, recently related stated, his Mom told him that she had done exactly what she wanted to do over the past 54 years. It doesn’t get much more satisfying or better than that.
We thank her for her passions and her abundant lasting legacy.
