Joyce Ann Menard, of Bradenton Florida, formerly of Fall River, MA passed away on March 6, 2016 at the age of 66, following a four plus year battle with Amyloidosis. She was the daughter of John and the late Marie Medeiros and sister of Sherry Medeiros of Provincetown, MA. Joyce was born in Dighton, MA where she spent her childhood years. She was a lifelong health care provider working at nursing homes and hospitals in Fall River before relocating to Bradenton and continuing her career there a decade ago. She was mom, daughter & friend in equal parts. Joyce was known to be able to communicate volumes by saying very little; rather she employed a collection of looks that let you know her opinion in no uncertain terms. A book or in more recent years her Kindle was never far from her reach. In addition to reading she enjoyed donating to the Native Americans and going to early dinners with her 90 year old Dad or lunch with the girls but what she truly loved most was her children. Her family includes son, John Menard, of Quincy, MA and son, Charles Menard Jr. and wife Santana of Mayodan, NC and daughter Jennifer Strong and husband Scott of Fall River, and son Jason Menard and wife Amy of Coventry, RI as well as her cherished grandchildren Jade, Justin, Scotty, AJ, Zach, Brett and Brayden. She also treasured her many loving friends -
