Joyce Ann Tirocchi, 63, of Johnston, passed away unexpectedly at home on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.
Joyce was born in Pawtucket, RI, the daughter of the late Agnes Ann Hayek. She was the oldest of five children, predeceased by Sandra Bulpitt and Joseph Hayek, and survived by Barbara and her husband, Jeff Saucier and Jennifer Sanita.
Joyce was the wife of Valentino Angelo Tirocchi. She is survived by her three beautiful children, George “Jake” Fahme, Valentino Anthony Tirocchi and Rachel Evelyn Tirocchi. Joyce also leaves three cherished grandchildren, Mia Sofia Fahme, Valentino Roland Tirocchi, and Luca Angelo Tirocchi and her many nieces and nephews.
Joyce was a hairstylist for many years before becoming a homemaker. She loved to cook and work in her craft room, but her pride and joy was hosting her family and friends for the holidays.
Joyce accepted Christ into her life at a young age and always tried to live out her faith. She loved to read her Bible, share her faith by praying for and with family and friends. She was sociable, brutally honest, and could strike up a conversation with anyone. She was kind and loving and always had a smile on her face. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. She will be sadly missed, but we are comforted knowing she is with the Lord.
Services for Joyce will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2022 at 10 am in the Greater Rhode Island Baptist Temple, 671 Greenville Ave., Johnston, RI 02919. Visitation will begin in the church at 9 am. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Greater Rhode Island Baptist Temple .
