Joyce Madar Obituary

Joyce Hill Madar, age 72, died Sunday, November 26th at Northside Forsyth Hospital in Cumming, GA. Joyce was born December 8, 1950 in Hazen, Arkansas to John Raymond and Lessie (Wyatt) Hill. Joyce was a 1968 graduate of Hazen High School and attended Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. On Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1970, she married her husband, Larry James Madar, of 41 years of marriage. To this union was born one child, Melody Madar Scott, seven years after their marriage. 

When she was younger, she worked as a dental assistant for 7 years in Stuttgart, Arkansas. Joyce loved beautiful flowers, music, and children. She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Hazen, Arkansas where she played the piano for the Busy Beavers children’s choir when Melody was younger.

Joyce earned the title of "Nene" on March 16, 2008, when her only grandchild, William Grant Abernathy was born. She had a great love for her only-daughter and only-grandson and loved to brag about them to everyone. Joyce was a lifetime resident of Hazen, AR until she moved to Cumming, GA in 2010. She loved to be on the go and cherished every adventure that she was able to experience with Melody and Will after moving to Georgia. Joyce attended First Baptist Church in Cumming and was a member of the Harmony Ladies Sunday school class. She adored the friendship and fellowship that she built with this amazing group of ladies.

Joyce loved animals, especially her granddogs Shadow, Shelby, Axey, Arian, and Addy. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and fur babies. 

Joyce is survived by her daughter, Melody (Madar) Scott and son-in-law, Chris Scott of Ball Ground, GA. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Larry Madar, and her only grandchild William Grant Abernathy.
