Joyce Newman Obituary

********DUE TO THE IMCLEMENT WEATHER FORCASTED FOR FRIDAY,

JOYCE'S SERVICES HAVE BEEN RESCHEDULED TO MONDAY, JANUARY 22, 2024********

PLEASE TRAVEL SAFELY.  WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THEN. 


 Joyce M. Newman, 81, of Edison, passed away at her home on December 20, 2023. Born on July 27, 1942, at Fordham Hospital in the Bronx, NY. She grew up in the Bronx, attended PS 127 Junior High, and graduated from James Monroe High School with a degree in business.

Joyce moved from the Bronx, NY, to Piscataway, NJ, in the late 1960s. During this time, she worked for the New York Bell Telephone Company. While commuting to and from New York, she met her future husband, James, a bus driver. Within a few years of their meeting, they moved to Roselle Park and finally settled in Edison. After taking early retirement from New York Bell, Joyce took time off before returning to the workforce. She later joined Atlantic Realty Development Company, where she worked until her death.

The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Joyce. She loved spending the weekend shopping and having lunch with family and friends, getting her nails done, and relaxing watching her favorite TV show, I Love Lucy. Like most women, she loved collecting handbags and shoes. We often joked that most people work to pay bills, eat, and survive, but she did it for the shoes and handbags. Her cheerful personality was contagious to everyone she met. She was thoughtful, compassionate, kind, and generous. Those who were lucky enough to know Joyce in this life know that she can never be summarized in words. Her presence on this earth was deeply felt and will be forever remembered.

Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, Edwin and Anna, and her husband, James.

Joyce will be remembered lovingly by her sister Barbara, brother-in-law Millard, her brother Edwin and sister-in-law Melissa, her nieces Jennifer and Dina, and her nephew James and their spouses, Kevin, Graig, and Deana, respectively, and many loving great-nephews, great-nieces, and one great-great nephew.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a celebration of her life on Monday, January 22, 2024, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Sheenan Funeral Home, 233 Dunellen Avenue, Dunellen, New Jersey.
