Patricia was born April 22, 1945, in Bowling Green, Ky. She was raised by her adopted parents, Andrew and Nina Penrod.
Joyce met and later married John Robert “Bob” Moreland July 7, 1968, in Fort Worth. Together they raised a family that includes seven children, 21 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
Joyce had many passions in her life. She was an outdoor person who loved spending time at the beach and tending to her yard, where she spent many hours taking care of her flowers. She was especially fond of her hibiscus and was proud of the yard that she created over the years.
Joyce spent much of her time going to antique stores and filling her home with tons of treasures. Although her family would tell her she was a bit of a hoarder and she had too much “clutter,” Joyce always found a way to incorporate the items into her home and make them look beautiful.
She enjoyed life’s simpler pleasures and that included what she drank. Dr Pepper was always the drink of choice for Joyce.
Above all things, Joyce loved her family. Family meant everything to her. She cherished every moment around them and was incredibly proud of each of their achievements. She loved being a grandmother and only wished she had more time to spend with them.
Joyce was preceded in death by her parents; and granddaughters Madison Moreland and Kennedy Lamance.
She is survived by her husband of 48 years; children Scott Shugart and wife, Kathie, Alan Shugart and wife, Margie, Stephanie Bostick and husband, Don, Tina Brawn, Robert Moreland and wife, Beky, and Nina Lamance and husband, Jamie.
She is also survived by eight siblings; 21 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and many other cherished family members and friends.
