Joyce Elaine Basham, age 49, of Texarkana, Texas, went to be with her Lord, Jesus Christ, after a long illness.
Mrs. Basham was born August 16, 1972, in Texarkana, Texas. She was a loving mother, wife, daughter, sister, child of the King and a member of Souls Harbor Pentecostal Church.
Her nurturing spirit inspired her to become a Registered Nurse. Joyce’s passion for children was evident in her career in pediatric nursing prior to becoming a stay-at-home mom and homeschooling her children. She served her church family through ministry to children as choir director, Sunday School teacher and as an instructor at the church’s elementary school. Even as she struggled with her own health, she cared for others as a home health nurse. Joyce loved well and was dearly loved.
Joyce enjoyed gardening, needlework, and most of all spending time with her family.
She was preceded in death by her father, Lewis “Wade” Moore.
