Daughter of Gloria and the late Albert Doty. Sister of Richard Doty (Carole). Grandmother of Evan. Joyce was a beloved wife, loving mother, fantastic daughter, devoted grandmother, caring sister, and a great friend to many. She always found a way to fill the world around her with love. She was born in New Eagle, PA and lived in Bedford, OH, Altoona and Johnstown, PA, before moving to Glenshaw, where she and Peter raised their three sons.

She recently retired as the longtime Legal Advocacy Manager at the Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, where she supervised the Legal Advocacy staff. She provided court accompaniment and safety planning to hundreds of domestic violence victims every year, presented trainings on domestic violence for professional and community groups, and worked with police prosecutors and the courts to improve the response of the justice system to domestic violence victims.
