Age 73. Joyce died peacefully at home with her family at her side. Joyce bravely fought a lengthy battle against the dreadful disease Multiple Sclerosis since 1994. The more disabled she became, the more determined she was to live as normal a life as possible. She kept a positive attitude and encouraged others with MS to do the same.

Devoted mother of Randy Pollard (Lana) of Long Grove, IL and Robin Frey (Matthew) of Orlando, FL. Loving grandmother of Sarah, Alex, and Liam. Dear sister of William Kling of Mullica Hill, NJ and Kenneth Kling (Jean) of Sewell. Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Joyce was born in Southwest Philadelphia to William and Myra (nee Petzold) Kling. The family moved to Lindenwold when she was thirteen where she grew up. She was a 1962 graduate of Overbrook Regional High School. Joyce worked as an administrative assistance at PNB Bank, General Electric in Southwest Philadelphia, and RCA Space where she met her husband. After starting a family, she became a full time devoted mother. Over the years she did volunteer work for the church and many community organizations. Her hobbies were dancing, playing the guitar and singing, baking, bike riding, playing tennis, photography, and scrap booking. She also loved to travel and spend times at the Jersey shore and in Florida with family. Joyce’s greatest love was being with family and friends. She loved having her family together for holidays and spending time with her friends for walks in the neighborhood. Joyce is currently a member of the Chews United Methodist Church in Glendora, NJ. She and her family were members of Calvary Lutheran Church in West Chester, PA for 26 years before moving back to New Jersey in 2005.
