Joyce Marie (Tuncy) Beebe

FALLS VILLAGE — Joyce Marie (Tuncy) Beebe, 77, of 10 Prospect St. died May 1, 2020, at the Geer Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in North Canaan. She was the wife of William C. Beebe. 

Joyce was born Aug. 17, 1942, in Sharon, the daughter of the late Hazel (Pulver) and David H. Tuncy. 

Joyce was employed as an assembler at the former Bicron Electronics Plant in North Canaan for 15 years. Prior to that, she had worked at the Sharon Hospital in the Laundry Department. A gifted crafter, Joyce was known for her ability to crochet. She loved to sit on her front porch and, while crocheting, she loved to watch the hummingbirds that would gather at her feeders. She also loved unicorns. She was an exhibitor at the Goshen Fair in the Arts and Crafts Pavilion. 

Joyce was a 41-year member of the Falls Village Ladies Auxiliary and served as president of that association for 10 years.

In addition to her husband, Joyce is survived by her son, Douglas W. Chapman and his companion, Mary Bryant, of Lime Rock; her daughter, Lisa M. Chapman of Torrington; her sister, Linda Stickles and her husband, Conrad, of Amenia; her brother-in-law, Kenneth Wilcox of Dover Plains; her grandsons and granddaughters, Cody Reid and Kiera Reid, both of Lakeville, Gary R. Grandell and his companion, Hannah Domingue, of Torrington and Serena M. Grandell of Torrington; and several nieces and nephews. 

Joyce was predeceased by her sister, Beverly I. Wilcox.

A graveside service will be held on Thursday, May 7, at 11 a.m. in Grassy Hill Cemetery in Falls Village. Due to the prevailing conditions, there will be no calling hours, but at a later and more appropriate time, there will be a celebration of Joyce’s life. 

Memorial donations made be sent to the Alzheimer’s Association, 2911 Dixwell Ave., Hamden, CT 06518; or the Falls Village Volunteer Fire Dept., 188 Route 7 S., Falls Village, CT 06031. Arrangements are under the care of the Newkirk-Palmer Funeral Home in North Canaan.
