SANTO – Joyce Andre Carmichael Self, 73, of Santo, beloved wife, mother and Granny left this worldly earth to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, Jan. 28.
Service is 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, at Palo Pinto County Cowboy Church in Santo (U.S. Highway 281 South and FM Road 129). Visitation is 6-8 p.m. Thursday at Baum-Carlock-Bumgardner Funeral Home in Mineral Wells.
Joyce was raised in Guthrie, Okla., the daughter of Andy and Velma Carmichael. Joyce had many jobs throughout her life, but her most rewarding was taking care of her family. Joyce was the “ultimate spectator” and loved nothing more than watching the ones she loved participate in their various activities, be it livestock shows, rodeos or sporting events. You would find her front and center cheering, with a purse full of anything you might need. If the game was a good one, she didn’t even have to know anybody playing! The little gray-haired lady in the stands cheering for both teams was everyone’s Granny.
Joyce was a member of the Eastern Star and played an instrumental role in the development of the Palo Pinto County Cowboy Church. She was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed.
Joyce is survived by her best friend and love of her life, husband of 48 years, Tommy Self, of Santo; children, Tim and Cheryl Foster, of Antlers, Okla., Mike and Teresa Foster, of Gordon, Conni and Rod Foreman, of Lipan, and Brenda and John Trammell, of Whitt; grandchildren, Josh and Caleb Foster, Kimberly Yandell, Ayla Rice, Cassie, Brooke, Ranch and Bronc Foreman, and Ryan, Cory and Ensley Trammell; numerous great grandchildren; and “honorary grandchildren” to anyone who wanted to call her Granny.
In lieu of flowers donations to this church in her honor are appreciated. Condolences may be left at www.bcbfuneralhome.com.
