Joyce Whisenant, born in 1946, died peacefully, surrounded by those she loved on September 4, 2019. Joyce is survived by her husband of 42 years, John Whisenant; her children, Justin, Jordyn, Stan, Daniel, and Johnette; her grand-children, Chris, Ashleigh, Mikala, Stosh, Jonathan, Jake, Gabby, Marxen, Ashtin, Johnston, Asha, Dax, and Olli; great-grandchildren, Millie, Cooper, Bailey, Emma, and Caius; brothers, Mike and Mark; as well as many beloved family and friends.

A renaissance woman, Joyce’s passions led her into education, counseling, real estate, and small business ownership. She loved the Sandia Mountains, autumn in Albuquerque, and the ceaseless magic of hot air balloons sailing above the city. Her truest calling and greatest passions were motherhood and being Gigi to her grandkids and great grandkids.
