Joyce Griffis Obituary

Joyce Lee Griffis, age 85, of Kingston, passed away Monday morning, February 5, 2024 at Horizon Medical in Dickson, Tennessee.  She was born August 22, 1938 in Pike County, Kentucky but spent most of her life in Roane County.  Joyce was a faithful member of Liberty Baptist Church in Kingston and attended as long as her health permitted.  Throughout her life, she worked at Roane Hosiery Mill, Inc. in different departments, Walmart in Rockwood as a cook in the Radio Grill and later as a people greeter, and she spent several years as a homemaker.  She loved singing, reading signs as she rode along with others, sightseeing, and spending time with family. She enjoyed trying to learn how to use technology and accidentally sending texts, phone calls, and Facebook Messenger messages to everyone she knew! Preceded in death by her loving husband of 65 years, George Levi Griffis; parents, Charles Young & Flossie Ball Young Owens; sister Logean Lynch; and brothers, William “Dub” and Charles “Junior” Young.
