Joy Lucille Corley 85, Plattsburg, Missouri passed away on October 10, 2013.

Joy was born on August 24, 1928 in Mountain View, Missouri to Osborne and Ethel (Markland) Beeler.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Buster Beeler; sister, Vi Davis; her husband, Tom Corley and her beloved grandson, Aaron Smith.

Joy was a member of the St. Munchin Catholic Church, Cameron. She was proud of her involvement with Father Pat Tobin with the hospitality portion of the RCIA program for many years.

Joy loved seeing her 3 children, Steve (Marilyn) Moore, Kansas City; Jeanie Smith, Independence; Gary (LouAnn) Corley, Kansas City; 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. In the last few years the great-grandchildren loved going for rides with her on her electric wheelchair. She often said she wished she could help take care of the great-grandchildren as she did her first few grandchildren.

Joy married Tom Corley on February 14, 1960 in Kansas City, MO. They were married 48 years and would go out dancing in their later years, always dancing to their favorite, “Under the Boardwalk”.

Joy especially loved her garden. She spent endless days canning and putting vegetables in the cellar. Joy and Tom were known to travel around Kansas City putting goody baskets on their kid’s doorsteps all through the summer.

Joy’s home was her haven. She loved nothing better than to sit on her front porch and sip hot tea and wave to the few cars that went by. She was surrounded by her many cats and always a dog. She loved them dearly.

She also leaves great neighbors who have helped through the years. The “West” family and the “Swallow” family.

Mass of Christian Burial: 11:00 AM, Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at St. Munchin Catholic Church, Cameron. Visitation: 10-11:00 AM, prior to the service at Poland-Thompson Funeral Home, Cameron. Burial: Perrin Cemetery, Perrin, MO.

Joy had recently said that she would love to do something in her grandson’s honor. With that in mind the family is requesting no flowers, but donations to: MCC Foundation Fire Academy in Memory of Aaron Smith, 3200 Broadway, Kansas City, MO 64111.
