  1. Joyce Kyle( and Ken) were neighbors to my folks, Mary and Oran McAllister for over 40 yrs in the country at Burns, Ks Joyce worked alot in the kitchen with my mom at the Burns Methodist Church, and was great to us 8 kids..Ken would drive by my folks’ place and if dad was in the yard he would slow down, roll the window down in his truck..and yell out to my dad, “Hello you
    D–n Dutchman”!and drive off laughing..my dad was Irish!..will truly miss this wonderful lady
    ( and Ken).. blessings to this family

  2. So sorry for your lost. I remember her as being a kind and friendly lady. A great friend to my mom. She will be missed.

  3. I so enjoyed being Joyce’s hairdresser for over 25 years. She was just as beautiful on the inside as she was out. I loved her and will have wonderful memories of our times together.

  4. Joyce was a long time friend and assisted me many times over the years with various matters. Just was such a wonderful loving Christian lady.
