  1. My big sister, Joyce Scobee:
    It has been 1 year and almost 4 months since you left us. I will never forget you. You were there for me my entire life when I needed you. I feel part of me is gone since you left. Everytime I drive past Sunset Lawn (daily), I tell you good morning, good afternoon, or just Hello Joyce. Sometimes driving by brings tears to my eyes, just knowing how many of the people I have cared about are there. Just last year, Mackenzie's Dad and Grandma (Danny Elliott and Diana Steele) were brutally murdered in Rancho Tehama. They are there at Sunset not far from you. (I know you remember the white haired grandma of Mackenzie's, you and Kenzie ran into her and her mother at Walmart when you were babysitting Mackenzie.) Just thinking about that makes me so sad too. Kenzie never got to really know her dad. In addition to Danny and his mother, Diana, there have been more since you left. Bobby passed away two days after your service. Georgie passed away May 24. There are now 7 of your siblings left. Me, Debbie, David, Patty Ann, Linda, Dennis, and Sunny. That is 7 out of 15. I will be back over there on May 21, 2018 for my good friend and co-worker, MarLa Burnett. She passed a week ago of cancer. So sad. She was a true friend.
    We have a couple additions to the family. Jinna had her baby girl, Hudson Lynn Marie Scobee Luna. Keri had another baby about a week ago, Aria. She is gorgeous. Tyler had his baby girl about a month ago, Tyler Madison McClain. We have so many babies all the time, I don't know if I remember all of them since you left. I miss you to the moom and back, Joyce. I will never get used to you being gone. I will come and see you when I am at Sunset Lawn next week. Love always, your sister, Diane Marie Kral. 5-14-18.

  3. I have known Joyce since I was 11 yrs old riding the bus. She wold pick me up at my grandma's right by the bus garage so we rose the bus alone for a while to her route and got to know each other. One time me and another girl had a disagreement and the girls mom tried to get n the bus screaming at me and Joyce got up and started screaming right back and escorted her right off the bus like a momma bear. I'll never forget that. I'll also never forget when we were in the bus on levee rpad when it was to the top flooded on one side and a diesel was oncoming and I thought we were going to die lol, but she drove that bus like a champ. I got to know here later in life as well. I was always impressed by spaghetti feeds at the moose. She was a great lady and I'm sad she's gone. Condolences to the family.
