Joyce Barefield passed away on August 31, 2020. She was proceeded in death by her parents, Gerald Lewis and Geraldine Lewis, her brother Geral, and her son-in-law, Andrew McCaffrey. She is survived by her daughter Karen and a host of family and friends from her travels throughout life. Born in Los Angeles in 1945, she always called New Orleans home. Joyce was a graduate of McDonogh 35, an Air Force veteran, a long time computer programmer and a quiet and strong presence of love wherever she went. She was devoted to Karen, her family and friends and the dogs- Chrissie, Sugar, Jade and Peppi- lucky enough to live with her. Several friends and family played a special part in her life in her later years, including her cousin Erroll Lewis, friends Marcie Courtney and her daughter April, Barbara Carter and Father James Morrison and Perry Southerland. A Celebration of her Life will be held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church on a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Andrew’s or to Zeus’ Place in her name.
