Obituary for Joyce Mills

Joyce  Mills
Woburn – Joyce (Smith) Mills, formerly of Winchester, died at home surrounded by her loving family. She leaves two daughters, Lisa Mills and Shirley Mills, their husbands, and two cherished grandchildren, Victoria and David. She also leaves a brother, Albert W. Smith.
Born in 1945 to the late James and Jeannie Smith in New York City, when her father was serving in the Coast Guard, she grew up primarily in Northborough. She graduated as valedictorian from Algonquin Regional High School in 1962, and then from Middlebury College in 1966. She enjoyed her career in human resources at Harvard and later in life found fulfillment helping people as a financial planner.
Joyce moved to Winchester with her then-husband Daniel Quinn Mills when their girls were young, and they were appreciative members of its First Congregational Church for nearly 40 years. She was known for her kindness, generosity, and wide variety of deep friendships. Her curiosity abounded - she was rarely found without The Economist or a book, and she enjoyed an eclectic range of music, dance, fine arts, and global travel.
Joyce passed away despite dedicated effort to treat recurrent endometrial (uterine) cancer, including as a participant in clinical trials. Contributions made in her memory to MD Anderson Cancer Center, P.O. Box 4486, Houston, TX 77210-4486 will be dedicated to further endometrial cancer research.
A memorial service will be held at 1pm on January 6th, 2018 at First Congregational Church in Winchester with a reception to follow.
