On October 18, 2020, Joyce Porter, a loving mother of two children, and a fabulous grandmother of four, passed away at age 68 after a courageous battle with Glioblastoma. Joyce was born on November 09, 1951, in Concord, California to Fred and Dora (Hansen) Porter.
Joyce spent 35 years working in the medical field. Along with managing a variety of medical offices, including Stanford’s prestigious Oncology Center, she worked as an Operating Room Technician, and most recently, as the manager of McKay Realty.
Joyce had a passion for music. Along with sharing her beautiful voice with others, she spent decades teaching others how to play the piano. She was an accomplished choir director, who not only led many church choirs, but was also asked by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to lead a choir for a Regional Conference that was attended by President Ezra Taft Benson, who was the prophet of the church at that time. Joyce was known for her quick wit, infectious smile, and compassionate spirit.
Joyce was preceded in death by both of her parents. She is survived by her children, Wendy (Nick) Toale, and Katie (Del) Mecham; three siblings, Barbara (Ron) Conner, Janet (Jim) Buckley, and Daniel (Mary) Porter, along with four grandchildren, Tyler, Kylieann, Ethan, and Brandon, whom she loved with all her heart. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, October 24, 2020, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints building found at 8137 South Echo View Drive, West Jordan, Utah.
