Joyce Duggan

February 25, 1932 — January 28, 2021

On Thursday, January 28, 2021, at 2.25 a.m., Joyce D. Duggan, loving widow of Wesley Duggan and mother of 10 biological children and 78 foster and emergency shelter children, passed away at the age of 88.

She was born in West Virginia in 1932, enlisted in the United States Air Force and married early in her military career. Traveling all over the world following her husband Wesley, she was known as “a provider to the masses”. Joyce Duggan attended Bluefield State College and was a graduate of life. She possessed a passion for the arts, literature, and writing. Had life’s circumstances not dictated otherwise, she would have been an author of many books and a library that would rival the British Library in England. Joyce loved children, animals, and nature, sometimes more than herself.

In addition to her husband Wesley, she is preceded in death by a son, David Wesley; 2 sisters, Mary and June; and a brother Staley.

She is survived by a brother Jack Cale in Quinwood; her children, Robert and Marri Duggan in Carson Nevada, Virginia and Terry Fischer in Lugoff South Carolina, James Crist in Jinx, Oklahoma, Sandra and Larry McClung in Lugoff South Carolina, Diana and Keith Hollinghead of Powhatan, Virginia, Carol McClung of Quinwood, Charles Duggan of Lugoff South Carolina , June and Jeannie Duggan of Lexington, South Carolina, and Christina Duggan of Elgin, South Carolina; and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Joyce will be buried in the Wallace Memorial Cemetery, Clintonville and a small memorial service at home at a later date.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers or memorials, donations be made to the American Cancer Society P.O. Box 22478 Oklahoma City, OK 73123.
