Twin Falls, Idaho - Joyce Bay, 81, loving mother, wife, grandma and great-grandma, passed away Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013.
Joyce was born Jan. 24, 1931 in Oklahoma City, Okla., to Daniel Wilson and Bertha Baker Wilson Young. She lived in various parts of the world, including Brazil for two years with her husband, Thomas, and her three young children. Then later in their lives, a move took them to Alaska for more than 20 years, where their daughter (Brenda) and her family were able to live, too. Their last move brought them all to Twin Falls, where she and Tom lived their final years. Joyce was married to her best friend, Tom, for 54 years. Joyce was always with loved ones; she was lucky to have the help of her grandsons (Louis and Joe), daughter (Brenda) and son-in-law (Paul) to take care of her in her time of need.
Joyce always had a love and unbelievable talent for the art of painting; her paintings are just breathtaking. She entered some of her paintings in the fair with the push of her husband, Tom. She was very humble about her paintings, but she wasn’t one to just sit and watch TV so she painted. Joyce also had a skill with crocheting and was a great seamstress. She couldn’t help but keep herself busy.
Joyce is survived by her sons, Rick and Larry Manning; and her daughter, Brenda Upchurch (Paul). She will be missed by 10 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She is also survived her younger brother, Kenneth Wilson. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Thomas Bay; brother, Eugene; and her daughter, Donna.
The funeral for Joyce will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, at Parke’s Magic Valley Funeral Home, 2551 Kimberly Road in Twin Falls. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home. Interment will be held following the service at the Twin Falls Cemetery in Twin Falls.
