August 26, 1939 - July 28, 2021
Joyce Raines, formerly of Terrell, passed away in Rowlett, TX. Joyce was born in Celina Texas to Juanita and Jess Rogers, both of whom preceded her in death along with her brother, George Edward Rogers and beloved husband, Glenn Raines. Joyce grew up in Celina and graduated from Celina High School. After marrying Glenn, they lived in Terrell until Glenn’s work took him to Rockwall in 1976 where Joyce and Glenn lived until his passing. She was a excellent cook and always had an open door to everyone she knew. Her southern hospitality was well known among family in friends and Joyce would outdo herself at each gathering making sure everyone had plenty to eat. She could play many songs on the piano by ear on a baby grand piano that she loved and Joyce truly enjoyed playing for others as they sang and laughed. Her yard was always the most beautiful in the neighborhood because of the dedication and attention she gave to each plant and flower as they grew to gorgeous blooms. Joyce had a very strong confident personality that endeared her to so many-you always knew where you stood with Joyce and her loyalty as a friend was unquestioned. A loving woman who made sure to spend every day with the ones she held dear, Joyce will be missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her sons : Coby Raines of Terrell and Bart Raines of Rockwall as well as a bonus daughter, Tracy Manly Kelley of Rockwall; granddaughters: Ashley Raines Salvato of Rosenberg and Angela Raines Gafford of Rockwall as well as other extended family and many dear friends. A graveside service will be at 11:00am, Wednesday, Aug. 4, 2021 at Oakland Memorial Park with Rev. John Lowrie officiating.
