Joyce Rosetta (Huntington) Duffan was born on May 1, 1944, to Willie Huntington and Lucille Huntington in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She transitioned to eternity on January 19, 2024, in Dallas Texas.
Joyce graduated from Bartrum High School and married Fredrick Arnold Duffan in 1967. She went on to enjoy a long-time career as a news editor for TV Guide for 30 years and Chilton Credit Bureau simultaneously. While in Philadelphia, she worked as a printer at Chase Thermographers. She retired in 1997.
Joyce accepted Christ and remained faithful to the body of Christ throughout her life. She was a member of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Philadelphia and, upon her arrival in Dallas, Texas, she united with First Baptist Church of Hamilton Park. Selfless by nature, Joyce delighted in seeing and meeting the needs of others. She demonstrated her love for others by volunteering her time in Mesquite where she fed the homeless.
Among many hobbies, Joyce enjoyed painting, roller skating, swimming, reading, and modeling. She was featured in the Philadelphia Inquire as a demonstration model for Nancy Wilson's Cosmetics line. She also did many years of fashion modeling for churches, banquets, and events alike. Joyce was very creative and loved working with her hands, especially with machinery.
Joyce was a woman of remarkable qualities and will be fondly remembered for her determination, love, hard work, fashion, and poise. Her influence and loving spirit will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, Willie Huntington and Lucille Huntington. Those left to cherish lasting memories include her son, Dontay M. Duffan; her grandsons, Davron Duffan and DeKendrick Duffan; her great-granddaughter, Snoh Duffan; her brother, William Huntington (Joyce); her mother-in-law, Edith Duffan; her nieces - Lisa Huntington, Missy Huntington, Michelle Huntington, and Joy Huntington; her nephew, David Huntington; her special friends - Ann, Margaret, and Doris; and a host of family and friends.
