June 24, 1938 — January 14, 2022

Joyce Joann (Thomas) Earles, 83, a longtime Liberty resident, went to be with the Lord on January 14, 2022, at Liberty Hospital.

Joyce was born June 24, 1938, in Boonville, MO, the third of five children of Marion Eugene and Nora Estelle (Watts) Thomas. She grew up in Boonsboro, MO and graduated from high school in Boonville.

She was saved in July 1972 at Calvary Baptist Church in Liberty, and was an active member of Heritage Bible Baptist Church. Joyce loved her Lord. Joyce also loved baking wonderful cakes for any occasion, especially for those she loved.

Along with her parents, Joyce was preceded in death by a granddaughter, Sara Stillwell, and brothers, Bill Thomas (Nita deceased) and Donnie Thomas.

Survivors include her husband of 65 years, Paul; children, Brent Earles (Jane) and Dana Hull (Dennis); grandchildren, Jared Earles (Jeanette), Taylor Sherrell (Cristofor), Scarlett Keim (Michael), Roman Hull and Jentry Hull; great grandchildren, Logan, Gabriel, Allison, Brooks, Brooke, Kolbie, Kash, Oliver and Spencer; siblings, Jackie Thomas (Patty) and Ronnie Thomas (Rita); as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other family members and friends.

Joyce was a dear sister in the Lord. Now that she has entered into eternity she will be missed by those left to follow, but her sweet smile, kind words, and gentle spirit will not be forgot until we meet again.
