CASCO — Joyce Bowman Heald passed away on June 24, 2014, at home, after a long struggle with cancer. She died with dignity and as the genuine lady that she always was.

Joyce then worked as a Medical Assistant and Office Manager for an Orthopedic Surgeon in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. for 17 years. Joyce and Norm retired in 1998 and moved to Parker Pond in Casco, where they had honeymooned, and just recently celebrated their 52nd anniversary.

Joyce was predeceased by her parents. She is survived by her husband Norm; her son Greg; daughter-in-law Leslie; grandsons Adam and Michael Cardinal; daughter Dawn Girton; and granddaughters Kristina and Delaney.
