Obituary for Mary Alice Joyner

Mary Alice Joyner was born in Hobgood, North Carolina to Eula Mae Carr and Wilson Higgs. After living in North Carolina for many years, she moved to Newark, New Jersey where she raised her family. She was a mother to many. Mary Alice also fostered many children which she treated as her own.

Mary Alice was a sister to Teora Harrell, MacArthur Carr, Lou Edney, Johnnie Mae Yancey and the late Lemon Carr and William Carr. She was mother to Sharon Wiley, James Cleveland Joyner, Jr., Alexis Joyner and the late Michael Joyner. Mary Alice had six grandchildren, Crystle Smith, Deja Smith, Mikayla Cherry, Vera Joyner, Charles Joyner and Inayah Pittman, as well as many other adopted grandchildren. She also had 5 great-children as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Mary Alice enjoyed and loved life to its fullest. She loved the Lord and she loved to smile and laugh. She was loved by everyone she met because of her kind, warm and loving nature. But, she was tough! She was known to be a pistol. Her nickname was “Pistol Packin’ Jackie”.

Mary enjoyed watching western movies but horror movies were her favorite. She loved to dance and sing. She enjoyed life daily. One of her favorite songs was “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding.

She was forever grateful and graceful until the Lord called her home.
