Joyce S. Finn, 83

MEREDITH — Joyce S. Finn, 83, of 7 Powers Road died Friday, Jan. 6, 2017, at the Golden View Health Care Center after a short illness.

Joyce was born Sept. 23, 1933, in Middletown, New York, the daughter of Lloyd R. and Eva (Towvim) Scotten. She grew up in Quincy, Massachusetts, and graduated from Quincy High School. She then attended New England Baptist School of Nursing, graduating at the head of the Class of 1954, and was elected class president.

Joyce worked as a nurse at the Baptist for a number of years before she and her husband moved to Maryland, where their son Russell was born. Joyce worked for the Health Care Finance Administration in Baltimore until she retired.

Always inquisitive, she studied and earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Arts. Joyce lived happily in New Hampshire for more than 21 years until her death.

She leaves her loving husband of 61 years, Elliot; and her grieving family: Russell and his wife Margaretta (Hayman), granddaughter Genevie, and grandson William, all of Mount Airy, Maryland.

God needed Joyce more than we did and took her to be with Him.
