Kathleen M. Joyce

Kathleen “Kathie” Marie (Lannan) Joyce, of Mashpee, MA passed peacefully on Friday, January 17, 2020 at the age of 87 at Bridges by Epoch, where she will be remembered by the staff for her winsome demeanor and infectious smile.

Kathie is survived by her devoted husband Bill; her two sons, Joe Lannan and Larry Lannan; her stepchildren Lori Galotti, Barbie Joyce, Kevin Joyce, Nancy Lafauce, Kerry Joyce, and Debra LaMonica; her sister, Peggy Linskey; as well as her five granddaughters and two great-grandchildren, whom she adored and relished in being the best Mimi.

Kathie was always impeccably dressed and took great pride in maintaining a beautiful home. Known for her exquisite penmanship she was often called upon to create beautiful cards, invitations and announcements for family and friends. She and Bill lived in Braintree before retiring to the Southport community in Mashpee.  For nearly twenty-five years, they enjoyed driving the back roads of their beloved Cape Cod and dining out every day at a different restaurant.  Kathie, with her social grace and quick sense of humor, made friends wherever they went, and her engaging presence will be missed at many of her and Bill’s favorite places.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated in Saint Ann Church, 757 Hancock Street, Quincy, Saturday February 1 at 10:30 AM.  Relatives and friends invited.  Visiting hours Friday January 31, 4-8 PM at Dolan Funeral Home, 460 Granite Avenue, EAST MILTON SQUARE.  Interment at a later date.
