Joyce Copice Obituary

Joyce A. Copice, 47, of Remington Farm Road, Coventry, RI, passed away on Wednesday, January 3, 2024, at Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, RI.  Born on Christmas day, 1976, she was a true gift to those she met, a heart too big for this world.  Joyce was the best friend and wife of Todd Copice for 15 years, and the beloved mother of Grace Copice.  

Daughter of Alice (Kerr) Reeley and the late Angus Reeley of Walpole, MA. Sister to Kenneth Lind and his wife, Bonnie of Tilton, NH, William Lind and wife Shannon of Boise, ID, Walter Lind and his wife Susan of Plymouth, MA and Douglas Reeley and wife Lauren of Holliston, MA.  Aunt to her niece Kate and nephews Eric, Anthony and Tyler. Joyce’s most treasured parts of life were her family, friends and Scottish heritage.  An avid Pat's fan and a die-hard Bruins fan, she enjoyed planning celebrations, playing games and traveling with her family, Highland Dancing, laughing with friends, and watching her daughter grow into a beautiful young lady. 

Joyce was a payroll specialist for twenty years and graduated from Salem State University, Salem, MA, in 1998.  A symbol of strength and dedication, Joyce was always taking care of those she loved with attention to detail, organization, and a smile that you could see in her eyes.  When needed most, you could count on Joyce to say exactly what you needed to hear, with a sense of humor so subtle you may miss it.  A wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, and a friend who never wanted to be the center of attention, rather found the most joy in watching those she loved thrive. She was a bright spot for those who were lucky enough to have her in their lives and will be missed every second of every day.

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, January 9, 2023, at 11:00 am in the South Walpole United Methodist Church, 1886 Washington Street, Walpole, MA. Burial will take place in the Woodland cemetery, Coventry, RI.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the East End Theater and Performing Arts, 1336 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence, RI 02914.
