Joyce was born in Flint, on October 1, 1933, to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph and Gladys (Brooks) LaFreniere. Raised in Mt. Morris, she grew up right behind Larry Henry, and at the age of 12, they started dating. Six years later, they were married on October 6, 1951, at St. Mary Catholic Church. Joyce and Larry loved to go camping as a family, always finding adventure in a new destination. They made friends everywhere they went. Sadly, Larry passed away on September 16, 2017. Joyce loved to decorate cakes, and was quite good at it, she also liked to arrange flowers and enjoyed spending time with her family. She was always known to have a plate ready for anyone that might stop by.
Joyce is survived by her four children: Chris and wife, Phyllis Henry, Debra and husband, Michael Wing, Collie Cavanaugh, and Randall Henry; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and many other relatives and close friends.
Joyce is preceded in death by her parents; loving husband, Larry; son: Joseph Henry; and her two sisters.
