Joyce Evelyn Miller Jones, age 76 of Monticello (Enon Community), went to be with her Lord and Savior Friday, May 19, 2023, at her home. She was born October 3, 1946, in the Enon Community in Drew County to the late James Frank Miller and Mary Louise Green Miller.
She was the Designated Representative for the State of Arkansas Health Department (PERK testing) for over 30 years and a longtime member of the Enon Baptist Church where she served as church treasurer for 35+ years. She also served on the Enon Cemetery Board for many years. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her brother, Johnny Miller.
Joyce enjoyed her girls' trips to Branson with lifelong friends Sharon Hancock, Carolyn Hales, and Betty Watson. One of her favorite places to be was working in her yard, feeding her wildlife, and preparing Sunday meals for her family. You always knew she loved you by the delicious meals she served. She was an avid sports fan and spent many Saturday nights at the racetrack with her family. She was also an expert seamstress often making many family members' clothing throughout her years.

    Joyce was an amazing woman who lived an amazing life. Anytime I think of a memory we’ve made together I can’t help but to smile. From helping me slide down the steps on the mattress as a child to helping me unhook my first fish from the pond. Aunt Joyce will always be loved and missed. To Bill, Dale, Steve, and the rest of the family, my heart is with you in this time of loss.
