Joyce Clevenger, 69, went home to her
Heavenly Father on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at home in Newport, TN. Joyce grew up in Newport, TN. She
dedicated her life to taking care of others as a nurse, for over 32 years. She
was an award winning cook and loved to share her cooking talents with others.
She was mamaw to all who attended Jolly Tots Learning Center.
Joyce was the
wife of the late Jerry Clevenger and is survived by daughters Kandee Veridal
and April Clevenger; sons, Chuck Clevenger and Judd Clevenger; siblings Dan
Grooms, Shelby Owens, Betty Lancaster; grandchildren JK Walker, Josh, Jeremy,
Landree (Veridal) great-grandchild Alyssa Walker; nieces, nephews and other
Joyce unselfishly donated her body to science but what
remains with us is the memory of a vibrant loving wife, mother, sister,
grandmother and friend.
The family will
be honoring Joyce’s wishes with no services. In lieu of services, the family
requests memorial donations are made to the Jerry Clevenger Scholarship
Memorial Fund, care of National Bank of Tennessee, Newport. This fund
originated in memory of her late husband, Jerry Clevenger, to provide athletic
equipment to underserved children
in Cocke County.
